I believe there is a certain magic within these Beanstalk walls…
It is a sense of caring, warmth, nurturing and love passed from generation to generation of teachers, children and parents.
The Beanstalk was founded by Camilla Peshall in 1988 and I joined the team in 2000. After a period of illness Camilla handed the school to me and I officially took over the ownership in 2004.
Over the years many teachers, children and parents have shared in the magic co-created by the many strong vibrant relationships in this loving community.
I would like to think that in each individual child (and adult!) it has sown a seed – a seed of trust, kindness, confidence, independence and love of learning.
The years at The Beanstalk may not be something all children remember when they sit their A-levels many years later, but we will have given them the opportunity to develop deeply nurturing relationships, with both teachers and peers, as well as life skills such as problem solving, negotiation, empathy, kindness and responsibility for themselves, others and the environment around them.
As for me, I am still learning every day and that is a humbling and rewarding feeling. I believe we are all here on this journey through life to live, love, learn and laugh! To give joy to others, read books to feed hungry imaginations and give hugs and comfort to soothe sadness.
I believe a Montessori education is the best gift you can afford your child and I would be delighted to answer any questions you may have either over the phone or during a visit to The Beanstalk.
