Our Team

“The vision of the Director should be at once precise like that of a scientist, and spiritual like that of a saint. When the Director finds joy in observing the inner life of the child then she has begun to become a teacher.”

Dr Maria Montessori

To really genuinely know a child, that’s the role of the Director. Match this with careful preparation of the environment and learning pitched at just the right level of challenge and the conditions are set for children to thrive. The Director is the bridge between the child and the environment, supporting the child’s activities within the environment.

The Director is trained as an astute observer, to recognize the strengths and needs of every child as well as the whole group. This allows the Director to present materials and activities at the right time and to know when to intervene, help or stand back to let learning occur naturally.

 

A Montessori Classroom

Give your child an education that is beyond imagined. Learn about how we embrace your child’s individuality while nurturing ways to explore a deep and meaningful understanding of the world around them. See how they learn to become independent learners from a young age.
