About Me

I am a newly qualified Montessori Teacher and Registered Childminder and offer Montessori childcare in my own home.

When children come into the world, their first function is to adapt to their environment and therefore the environment must first be prepared for the child.

The main aim of Montessori at Home, is to produce confident, independent and happy children who find joy in all they do. Every child shall be treated equally. Kindness to one another, respect for each other and the environment will be nurtured.

Each child’s social, physical, intellectual and emotional development shall be observed to ensure that individuals are given all manner of opportunities both indoor and outdoor to satisfy their interests. By keeping practice up to date, ideas fresh and following the progress of child development research, my curriculum meets and expands upon the standards of the Curriculum for Excellence.

As all children have different learning paces, the main areas of the Montessori Curriculum shall be available to them as they follow their own natural path of development.

My Experience

I studied and gained the Montessori Diploma in Early Years Education with the Montessori Partnership at the Edinburgh Montessori Arts School (formerly Morningside Montessori). Having worked at the school in Edinburgh I feel that the children of the Borders should have access to Montessori education. As a mother of four children aged from seven to fourteen I feel that as well as my professional qualifications I have a wealth of experience bringing up children.
