“Our care of the child should be governed, not by the desire to “make him learn things,” but by the endeavor to always keep burning within him that light which is called intelligence.”

Montessori, The Advanced Montessori Method, p. 240)


“In 2020, Annamaria visited our nursery which recently had transitioned from the ‘ordinary’ setting to Montessori to advise us on how to best implement Montessori ethos and practice in our Baby and Young Toddler room. Her visit and advice proved to be invaluable – she quickly diagnosed the problems and presented us with a comprehensive report on what we can do to achieve our goals. Annamaria worked extremely well with all teachers and practitioners, and her knowledge and unobtrusive demeanour earned her immediate trust and cooperation of all our staff members.

Annamaria helped us to re-organised the room environment, went on a ‘hunting trip’ around the nursery to put together some wonderful Montessori activities for the little ones, delivered an informative, short workshop on heuristic play and the use of treasure baskets with babies. All these have become an important part of our everyday practice.

I would strongly recommend Annamaria’s services to anybody who wish a sound and hands-on advice on how to improve or move forward your nursery practice.
