Welcome to Cobham Montessori School


Cobham Montessori School is an independent school situated close to the centre of Cobham. We serve 35 children (and their families) from 2 to 11 years, in the tradition of the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI). Our purpose is to aid each child's natural development through their preschool and primary school years. 

"Free the Child's potential and you transform him into the world"


-Maria Montessori

About Montessori

Maria Montessori (1870-1952) was an Italian physician and educator who founded a philosophy of education that builds upon a child's natural path of development.  Her lifelong observation of children and scientific study of pedagogy established an approach to learning which emphasises independence, self-directed activity, cooperation and learning in harmony with each child's unique pace of development.

 "One test of the correctness of educational procedure

is the happiness of the child." - Maria Montessori
