I am so proud to find myself as the owner, manager and teacher of The Montessori Nursery School. Integrity is at the centre of all we do here and that is why the nursery continues to flourish and grow ever since opening our doors 30 years ago.
Montessori is a truly amazing method and approach and our small size and family- friendly reputation offers our children an outstanding start. This has been recognised by the Care Inspectorate and Edinburgh Council with whom we are partners and receive funding for places. In our beautiful indoor/outdoor setting, our highly trained teachers focus on unlocking every child’s natural curiosity in the world around them, and developing happy, self-motivated learners. We are able to guide our children at their own pace, encouraging interpersonal skills, well-being and creativity, as well as successful academic learning. We focus on inclusivity, kindness and cultural awareness, and our children emerge as confident and resilient individuals, content in themselves, and ready to discover more.
By working every morning with the children, I provide a unique but very welcome experience for families who feel reassured that their nursery manager truly knows their child when liaising with them.
When we were forced to close for Covid-19 lockdown in March 2020, we very quickly put in place a virtual learning environment for all our children and their families to allow the Montessori approach to continue in their homes. This proved hugely successful and we know we can deliver this again if required.
Notwithstanding the challenges of this last year, I am very excited that due to demand, we aim to be delivering a Montessori education for children aged 6-12 years, from August 2022.
I'd love for you to come and experience for yourself the difference in our approach and to join our wonderful Montessori community of families from all over the world who delight in the loving, nurturing and supportive experience that we are respected for.
