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 skills to their daily work - ideas that will also benefit your child.
