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 145 children and young people (and their families) from 15 months to 18 years, in the tradition of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI).

Parents as Guides

We are committed to support parents in their role by providing programmes that share knowledge of Montessori principles and how to implement them in the home setting. Our offerings include programmes for expecting parents and those with children under the age of three.

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.
