MANAGEMENT: Managing Director

Jane has been involved in Montessori since 1992. Jane, completing her commerce degree at UND (University of Natal, Durban), worked in accounting environment for some years, and after the birth of her first child became fascinated with the development of the individual. This led to her discovery of Montessori and her first Montessori Diploma, followed closely by 2 more children and more Montessori studies.

Jane has the 0-3, 3-6 and 6-9 Montessori Diplomas from Namta and Mercy Montessori.

Jane joined Montessori Connect in 2003 as Principal of Nutwood Forest Pre-School in Green Point.  She later became the Principal of both Nutwood and Children's Montessori Workshop in Claremont with Vice-Principals in both schools in 2010.
In 2011, she took on the portfolio of Schools Manager, overseeing all the Montessori Connect Schools.

"My Montessori journey has been one of much personal growth as an adult, as I have had the privilege of sharing each child's individual development during their time in  my classrooms. Now, my journey continues with not only the children, but also their families and the staff at each of the schools".
