Katie works alongside Carole in the office three days a week.
I first became interested in the Montessori philosophy when I was fortunate enough to undertake my work experience at Absolute Angels during its first year of opening. During this time I was amazed at how effective the methods were, and enjoyed seeing the children in a classroom that let them be free to succeed and learn without restriction or criticism.
When I left school I stayed within the learning and development field, working as a Training Manager for the Probation Service for many years. However, I always hoped that one day I would be able to have a career that involved Montessori teaching in some way.
When a job came up at Absolute Angels in 2016, I applied straight away and was fortunate enough to start working in new my position in August 2016. My main role is in the office, supporting the Nursery Manager with the day to day running of the nursery. I also help in the classroom with the children, as well as running the breakfast club and School’s Out After School and Holiday Clubs. I love the variety my role brings and enjoy the interaction with the children every day.
I completed my Level 2 Montessori Early Years Classroom Assistant qualification in May 2017.
