Eastbourne Montessori School is owned and run by Lucy Forrester (MontDip A.M.I). Lucy graduated from the Maria Montessori Institute in Hampstead, London in 1992. She is assisted by Carmel Vallance, with whom she has worked since 2007. Carmel holds an NVQ Level 3 diploma. Both mothers, they believe that a warm and supportive environment in which to grow is crucial to a child’s development.

Children aged from two to six are welcome. The mixed age classroom provides valuable social experience. Leavers progress to local schools, well equipped for the next stage in their education and development.

The school is open for Autumn, Spring and Summer terms, each approximately twelve weeks long.
