Welcome To Harriet House School

A Montessori Nursery & Pre-Preparatory School for Boys and Girls aged 2½ to 7

Welcome from the Headmistress

Welcome to the Harriet House website. I hope that it helps you discover a little more about our school and to understand what Harriet House School has to offer.

headmistressAt Harriet House we believe in building self-esteem, celebrating individuality and the adventure of learning.  The Montessori ethos is applied throughout the school and there is a strong emphasis on positive role models, manners and respect for each other and the environment.  We feel children should be allowed to discover their environment in their own individual ways and develop their unique skills in their own time.  We deliver a full and varied curriculum for the children allowing them to explore their interests.

We appreciate what an enormous decision it is to send your child to nursery and/or pre-preparatory school and we never under-estimate the trust you place in us to look after your children.  We so enjoy getting to know you all and love the fact that siblings come through the school enabling lasting friendships.  We consider it a privilege to be a part of your children’s start in life.

Of course, the website can only provide a small taste. I would encourage you to come for a visit and discover the school for yourself.

Studies show that Montessori-educated children are more independent, creative and socially adept and regularly out-perform traditionally educated children.
