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