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.
Studies show that Montessori-educated children are more independent, creative and socially adept and regularly out-perform traditionally educated children.
