Joanna Tribe

Deputy Head and Montessori Teacher

Key Information: Qualified Montessori Teacher and a Mother of Two Children who attended the Denning Montessori School.

Jo did a BA hons in Landscape Architecture, and earlier in her career worked for technology giant Cisco.  She was inspired by her children’s experience at Denning to train and become qualified as a Montessori Teacher and work in a Montessori School in Dubai. She actually contacted me speculatively, asking if she could work in the school, where the magic began for her own children.

Jessica Ross

Deputy Head and Montessori Teacher

 

Jessica Ross was recommended by a friend of the Principals, a Montessori Lecturer, Sara ( we studied the primary Montessori qualification together ). She thought Jess was a talented and stand-out student, and thought that we would get along very well. She has gained valuable experience as a nanny for the last ten years. One of her roles as a nanny was looking after children for a European Royal Family, dealing with all the necessary requirements for security and organisation for this high profile family. She has spent the last two years completing her Montessori qualification.

Our Passion for What We Do

We simply love what we do, we are passionate, energetic and enthusiastic about giving each and every child the very best nursery education experience.

We care massively about everything that we do and it shows, ask any existing or past parent and they'll tell you the same thing.

We feel privildged to have the children, seeing the results we are able to achieve and the positive, happy, balanced, confident and self assured young people grow and develop is rewarding beyond belief.

For 24 years, our simply ethos of aiming to give your child or children the very best start in life, guides everything that we do.
