Welcome from the Headmistress
Welcome to the Harriet House website. I hope that it helps you discover a little more about our school and to understand what Harriet House School has to offer.
At Harriet House we believe in building self-esteem, celebrating individuality and the adventure of learning. The Montessori ethos is applied throughout the school and there is a strong emphasis on positive role models, manners and respect for each other and the environment. We feel children should be allowed to discover their environment in their own individual ways and develop their unique skills in their own time. We deliver a full and varied curriculum for the children allowing them to explore their interests.
We appreciate what an enormous decision it is to send your child to nursery and/or pre-preparatory school and we never under-estimate the trust you place in us to look after your children. We so enjoy getting to know you all and love the fact that siblings come through the school enabling lasting friendships. We consider it a privilege to be a part of your children’s start in life.
Of course, the website can only provide a small taste. I would encourage you to come for a visit and discover the school for yourself.
What makes the school so special is the atmosphere. The staff have infectious enthusiasm, they take care to support each individual child and they are utterly professional in everything they do. If my daughter loves school now and develops positive associations with education, then she has a much greater chance of flourishing as she gets older.
