Welcome to MEfA Montessori!!
A message from our Head of School:
Welcome to the MEfA Montessori website - we hope you will enjoy exploring it
I have been thinking a lot recently about our children who have great powers of association; every train of thought in an active mind has its active connection with some others. For example, a chance word overheard in the conversation of older children/adults can awaken a whole set of associations in the younger child. The Montessori sensorial materials have as their aim the development of keen perceptions which in their turn will provoke observation, association and generalisation. The biological effect of this sensory training is in the developing of the association centres in the cortex of the brain and the nerve fibres connecting them; and the psychological effect is the change from the instinctive impulsive life of elementary consciousness to the higher conceptual life of the fully developed mentality.

MEfA Montessori School is a fully inclusive school for children of all abilities and learning styles.
Our children are free to move and work within an atmosphere of order, made possible by gentle rules and absorbing didactic (learning) materials.
Research shows that very early indications of learning difficulties are best resolved by interventions at an early age.
Most parents attend our classes with their children - as a result they are in a very good position to reflect on our activities and develop similar opportunities at home.
We welcome all professionals to study with us.
All of our teachers in all of our classes are either MEfA Montessori graduates, or are currently studying for the MEfA Montessori post graduate certificates. We also welcome a number of professional Interns to MEfA Montessori.
