Only through freedom and environmental experience is it practically possible for human development to occur.

MARIA MONTESSORI

 

The Montessori Place is an independent school situated at two stunning sites - one by the sea, in Brighton & Hove, and the other in the countryside, close to Lewes/Uckfield. We serve 130 children (and their families) from 15 months to 16 years, in the tradition of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).

Early Childhood

The child in the first 6 years of life is a 'sensorial explorer'. Our Montessori for Bumps, Parents as Guides, Infant Community and Children's Houses serve children of this plane of development by bringing the world into their immediate environments.

Childhood

The Montessori Place Elementary is a place of superlatives. In their own words, it is a place where children between the ages of 6-12 seek to become the kindest, smartest and most skilful people they can.

Adolescence

Adolescence is a period of extraordinary energy and creativity. The Young People's Community, located in ancient woodlands in the quiet countryside of East Sussex, offers a 21st century education that prepares adolescents to be agents for change in the world.

Joy, feeling one's own value, being appreciated and loved by others, feeling useful and capable of production are all factors of enormous value for the human soul.
