At EMMA PARK MONTESSORI SCHOOL our goal for the child is the development of an attitude toward himself of confidence and esteem; toward the world, of care and respect; and toward learning, of joy and enthusiasm.

Emma Park Montessori is nestled under the greenery of garden trees in a homely environment.

The Principal Directress and owner of the school, Alta Steyn, has a National qualification as a Junior Primary Teacher and is a qualified Montessori Directress. She first started working with children in 1979.

The Directresses all have a National accredited Montessori qualification and have years of experience of working with children in the Montessori environment.

Our Assistants have been with us for years and work according to our high standards.

The Directresses and Assistants are all in possession of a current First Aid Certificate.
