A Little Bit About Me
I am an experienced mother to four children ranging in age from 19 to 6 years. I am also a qualified Montessori and early years teacher and an Ofsted registered childminder. I hold a pediatric first aid and enhanced DBS certificates, as well as a 1st class degree in law. I am located in the lovely village of Bovingdon in west Hertfordshire.
I have worked in Montessori pre-school settings with children aged from 2 -5 years in St Albans, Hertfordshire and in Cape Town, South Africa . In January 2020 I opened the doors to my own small Montessori environment for 4-6 children. The setting, based at my home, offers a Montessori home school environment to pre-school aged children from 2-5 years.
I am extremely passionate about Montessori but am equally passionate about working with small children. I find being able to combine the two immensely rewarding. I am in the privileged position of being able to guide these wonderful little beings on their first journey through education and have the huge honor of watching them progress, grow and flourish under that guidance.
I believe our interactions with children should always be guided by love, kindness and empathy and a desire to encourage children towards self belief and independence in all that they do.
