Sara started working with children as a dance teacher in 2006 after 20 years of dance practice. It was during a 2-year stay in China that she started teaching French as a foreign language, a profession she practiced for 10 years. At the same time, thanks to her role as a mother of 3 children, she was gradually introduced to the Montessori pedagogy until she decided to do the training at the IFMM in Geneva in 2020. After several internships and replacements, Sara joined the team in 2021 and embarked on the project to open the second class for 3-6 year olds. The first children were welcomed with joy and good humour on 1 February 2022 and the adventure continues happily!

Carolyn Tay

When she became a mother, she moved to Geneva, Switzerland with her family. For the next 12 years, she focused her energy on raising two children. Carolyn has always believed that children are the answer to bettering the world. And Maria Montessori’s child-centered pedagogy struck a chord with her since her youth.
After witnessing & experiencing firsthand, how effective & beneficial this pedagogy is on her own Montessori-schooled children. It comes as no surprise that in 2020, she embarked on her own Montessori journey and trained as an AMI certified assistant for the 3-6 years old. Then in 2021, she joined the teaching team in the bilingual Meyrin Montessori school as an English Assistant.
