After a career in the Charity sector Michelle was inspired by the wonderful start the Montessori Methodology of teaching gave her own children. Michelle completed the Montessori International Diploma in 2005 and established her own Montessori Preschool in 2006. For nearly 15 years Michelle ran an unrivalled setting with three Outstanding Ofsted Inspections and countless Montessori awards, until selling it at the end of 2019.

The Montessori Method is based on a deep understanding of the way children learn through choosing, trying and doing themselves with the freedom to repeat and refine skills without interruption.  The methodology is underpinned by specially developed materials, a carefully prepared environment and the close observation and guidance of talented teachers to provide an outstanding start for your children.

Maria Montessori said:

The child is a miraculous being, and this should be felt deeply by the Educator.

The goal of early childhood education should be to activate the child’s own natural desire to learn.

Michelle’s Montessori also follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), the Government’s standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five in England and Wales. The Montessori Method and the EYFS have strong commonality and complement each other in practice for the benefit of our children.
