A Montessorian first and foremost, Emma developed her passion for Montessori education soon after leaving high school and was inspired to take Montessori’s ideas to children around the world. She founded Edinburgh Montessori Arts School in 2006.
Emma holds her 0-6 Montessori Diploma (MCI), Montessori Special Needs Certificate (MCI), Administrator’s Certificate in Montessori for Inclusion (MMPI) and Post Graduate Diploma in Collaborative Working. She is currently training in Montessori Therapy.
Her colleagues describe her as a ‘big picture’ thinker and Emma says:
‘I am fascinated by the evolution of human consciousness and thinking about how we think and learn. A generalist at heart, I am dedicated to developing our systems based model of inclusion where the whole school community is challenged to collaborate in making the world a sustainable place for all.’
