Proprietor and Head of Nursery

The Nursery is privately owned by Rhian Rees who is also the Principal. She is a fully trained and qualified Montessori teacher with further qualifications in special needs education and a BSc (Honours) degree in Psychology.

Rhian has qualifications and experience in nursery education having worked extensively with pre-school children. She held posts at the Norland College working one to one with children with special needs. She also trained as a dyslexia teacher at an independent primary school, with children aged 5 to 11. Rhian also taught A-Level Psychology at an independent college.

However, it is pre-school teaching and nursery education where her real passion lies.

Whilst all of her own children were young, it was through watching and observing them that Rhian became interested in Montessori education, and could see the Montessori ideas and results first hand. Rhian has four children and her youngest is just 5. As such her teaching methods and approach to pre-school education remains fresh and fun having just experienced her own daughter‘s journey through nursery education.


There is a high teacher pupil ratio and all of the staff at The Montessori School House have relevant qualifications in the field of pre-school childcare and are experienced in this type of work.
