Ciana Alcon Rannari
Ciana Alcon Rannari is half French, half Finnish with some Spanish origins.
Her career began with a BAFA qualification working with children from 2 to 17 years old, practising extracurricular activities thus gaining her first experiences (before and after school care, school holiday activities and summer camps).
She then travelled to Australia (2017) to improve her English working as an au pair in Brisbane, which led to the discovery of the Montessori Method. While working as a Montessori assistant in several classes with children aged 6 months to 5 years, she familiarised herself with the challenges of supporting children in combined age groups. Ciana found Montessori education inspiring and relatable and realised she would like to learn more about this unique philosophy.
Keen to continue her passion she decided to study at Maria Montessori Institute London, qualifying as an AMI 3 – 6 Montessori Educator in 2020, while working as an assistant. After graduation she was able to work as the main guide in the same Montessori School.
Ciana loves working with children offering the wide diversity of the Montessori curriculum in an inviting and happy classroom.
She joined Montessori House Brussels in 2021, motivated to share her experience, while being in an international environment.
Ciana likes to spend her free time practicing yoga, ice skating, classical and contemporary dance.
