|Michel Capobianco has just joined us as the new Head of the Maria Montessori School, relocating from California with her family.
After many months of delay due to the pandemic, my family and I were delighted to finally start settling into our new home in London. The welcome I have received at the school has been truly heart-warming and throughout my days visiting our classrooms, that same warmth carried through in the teacher’s interactions with the children and with each other. Montessori education calls on all of us to bring our very best to the children each day, and it is working alongside a dedicated team that makes it all possible.
Whilst the start of 2021 has brought its challenges, our school community remains strong and vibrant. At our Notting Hill Children’s House the children were thrilled to start working again. They chose challenging work such as the Decanomial Square or the Metal Inset. Both activities require concentration and precision, helping children to develop both motor control and focus.
