Mrs Berry and Staff

Diane Berry

Diane Berry is a Montessori nursery teacher trained at St. Nicholas Montessori Centre in London. She has worked with preschool children in developing countries in both the voluntary and private sectors. Her experiences living and working in developing countries led her to the conclusion that children flourished best when they were in an environment that made them feel safe and secure; the child’s own home. If children had to be provided with child care then a nursery that reflected the home environment would be the preferred choice. It was with this in mind that when she returned from Kenya in 1998 to establish her own nursery it would, as much as possible, be a home from home for children.

Nursery Staff

Our excellent staff/child ratio enables us to offer a child centred environment where children, in keeping with the Montessori philosophy, are free to choose from a range of activities. All our nursery staff are dedicated in their work and many are also qualified nurses, health visitors and musicians. Many are mothers with school aged children.

We have eight staff members and all are fully supported with their professional development. All have CRB clearance.
