Beehive Montessori Preschool was established in 1984, by Margaret Courtney in response to the need for specialized pre-primary education and care for children aged 18 months to 6 years old. Margaret, our principal, is a caring and nurturing role model for children and teachers alike. She is a qualified Montessori teacher and Montessori examiner who has a wealth of knowledge and experience to share. Supported by six fully qualified Montessori teachers, each responsible for their own class. The number of children per class is strictly controlled in order to ensure that the best care is given to all. This allows for focused, individual attention and the development of an intimate, trusting relationship between teacher and child.
