The Brighton & Hove Montessori School was established in 1985 to welcome children into an inviting learning environment where, with guidance of experienced AMI Montessori teachers, they can develop their potentials and lay the foundations for life as independent, confident and responsible citizens of the world.
The way to achieve a better and more peaceful world is to start with the child.
We respect each person as a unique individual with different needs and contributions to make.
We welcome each child, supporting the development of the human being through education and care.
Our ethos can be summarised as 'respect yourself, respect others, respect the environment.'
At Brighton and Hove Montessori School children are in groups of 2 1/2 - 6 year olds and 6-12 year olds. Children spontaneously help each other and enthusiastically share skills and knowledge and each child’s effort is respected and considered.
The teacher gives individual and group presentations introducing the Montessori curriculum resources and techniques for learning. Each child practices, explores and learns in whatever way best suits them. Child and teacher have frequent one to one sessions, recording accomplishments, analysing challenges, promoting wellbeing and progressing to next steps.
