Coronavirus update 20th April


Brighton and Hove Montessori School welcomes you back to our new term.

We are not ‘distance’ learning as we are still a very close community in good contact with all our wonderful families as we adapt to new ways of enabling children to access the best of Montessori education. And yes, our school premises are physically open to children of critical workers, those with EHCPs or those who might be vulnerable.


We are also welcoming enquiries for new families to join us now and into the future.

Our Headteacher, Daisy, recommends the "Montessori Parent Coronavirus Survival Guide" as a very helpful summary of ways forward for any parent with children aged 0-adolescence. (£2.59)


Google founders, Larry Page and Sergey Brin and also Amazon’s Jeff Bezos attribute their success to being educated in Montessori schools so thanks to the good Dr again!


Some of our ongoing work here with current and future pupils will look at economic justice and we might even let ex-Montessori pupils know our findings with suggestions of what they can do with their fortunes!

The Brighton & Hove Montessori School was established in 1985 and has since grown to be respected and well-known in both the local community and international Montessori circles. In addition we are a AMI training school, with Montessori teaching students coming from across the world to observe and learn from our experience, which in turn benefits the children.
We provide a nurturing environment and individualised learning programme which looks at your child and their needs and development, working with families to provide the best education for their children, across the whole curriculum. 
We take regular trips and have strong links with the local area, including helping to maintain the award winning community garden on our doorstep.
Our group of parents are friendly and involved, and we strive to make everyone welcome in our community.

Our small class sizes enable each child to receive one-to-one attention, for our children to excel within a stimulating environment and to engage in learning opportunities unique to the Montessori classroom.

We work closely with all of the parents, to maximise their children’s potential, thus laying the foundations for their lives as independent, confident and responsible citizens. Our individualised learning plans, parental partnerships and regular feedback on the children’s progress, offer the very best learning environment.

Unique to Brighton & Hove Montessori School is our vision to accept each child as they are. Our approach appreciates each of our children’s unique qualities, encourages all the children to grow at their own pace and to be active, enthusiastic learners in the world around them.

We run an out of school club in the holidays, get in touch for further details.
