Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Leicester Montessori Schools believes that a focus upon a students education is of upmost importance at any stage in their progression.

However we also feel greatly and put emphasis on our school encompass not only education, but supporting our students social, physical and emotional development.

Here at Leicester Montessori we have incorporated emotional intelligence teachings into our curriculum for now over 10 years, aiming to help our students become aware of their emotions to necessitate a particular outcome.

We feel working together with parents is essential for effective development of every child’s education, where we ensure regular contact and communication between ourselves is promoted, allowing us to further tailor our learning strategy for our students. We also feel it is important to work with both students and parents in identifying strengths and areas to further develop early on, and also to acknowledge any career interests to focus the study strategy.

From the Headteacher...

From the Headteacher...

Much has changed in the one hundred years since Dr Maria Montessori began developing her teaching principles in Italy, but the importance and value of quality education has remained fundamental.

Here at Leicester Montessori School we recognise with the right education there is no limit to what can be achieved, and with this knowledge we aim to unlock the potential in all our students, instilling skills that can be carried, utilised and developed throughout their lives.

I believe that we can offer your child a truly tailored education, focusing on both strengths and weaknesses, in preparation for success in their future ambitions. We hope to inspire, nurture and guide in exceptional friendly learning environments, keeping at the forefront utilising the latest resources in this fast changing world. We recognise the importance of introducing education into developing minds and would like to share our values with you.

I would like to warmly invite you to come and visit our nurseries and schools, and welcome any queries or questions you may have. We look forward to welcoming you and together paticiapating in your childs ‘lifelong learning’.
