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 has become a second home for our little boy where he has acquired confidence, self-esteem and enthusiasm for learning new things. There has never been a day when he was not excited to go to school. For a parent this is so important.
