In 2003 Harriet Hathaway took over Ashampstead Montessori Nursery School, creating Harriet House School. The nursery takes the child-led Montessori approach and all teaching focuses on:
- Building self-esteem and confidence
- Encouraging respect for each other and the environment
The core Montessori areas of Practical Life, Sensorial, Numeracy, Creative, Literacy, Knowledge and Understanding of the World and Grace and Courtesy are taught.
We work in partnership with our parents to deliver the best start in education for every child.
“Harriet House is a magical place! Both our children have loved it here and have thrived. The children are treated as individuals and the staff see nothing but potential in them. I have not found anywhere else which can compete with the development opportunities given to the children both for self-confidence and for learning for the next stage. I cannot think of a better start for children than Harriet House”
