We are there for your child and you

Our work at Guisborough Montessori has one clear focus: your child's individual needs. In order for us to support your child's development in the best possible way, we employ people with different educational training backgrounds. They all attend regular further training courses, which enable them to bring new ideas and proposals to their daily work - ideas that will also benefit your child.

 

Find out more about our staff.

 

We are a team of dedicated and enthusiastic childcare practitioners. We all bring different skills and talents to the group, ensuring that your child will receive a varied and rich selection of activities and experiences.

 

The senior management team consists of Chris Robertson, Owner, Diane Bolton,  Manager and Lisa Buckton as the Deputy manager.

 

The rest of the team are Pauline Taylor, a longstanding member of the team and Pam Richardson a caring and hardworking staff member. Pauline and Lisa are also our qualified joint SENCO practitioners. Becca and Sarah make up the rest of our team, along with our 2 apprentices,  Zoe Duckling and Bridie Goldsbrough.

 

 

We also have work placement students working with us from time to time.
