Curious about why? 

 

Watch the first of a series of videos where our families and teachers share their experiences of a Montessori education.

Hear from one of our founders, Sue Birdsall about the benefits of a Montessori education for your child.

Would love to hear your thoughts, please comment below!

Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to make them learn things, but by the endeavour always to keep burning within them that light which is called intelligence.
