Ashley and the Team at Joyful Montessori


    We attend Joyful Montessori Parent- Infant and Toddler classes. They have been so helpful not only with building concentration and independence in my son, but also for myself. I have learnt how to take it slow, step back, allow him to do things for himself and how to deal with those big emotions. Ashley is so patient, kind and a caring teacher. I highly recommend Joyful Montessori.



    We have had a wonderful learning experience at Joyful Montessori. The environment is calm and welcoming, perfect for encouraging our little ones to learn. Thank you to Ashley for guiding us each week and expanding our knowledge of the Montessori philosophy. The learning materials have been fabulous. Montessori is definitely a way of life and something we are passionate about. We look forward to every session and are excited to continue our journey next year. Thanks again Joyful Montessori. It sure has been a joyful experience!



    My daughter is learning so much from Joyful Montessori’s programs and so am I! Such wonderful learning materials used. I would give 10 stars if I could! We look forward to coming every week! Ashley is a patient and passionate educator. Thanks again for a great term Ashley.

    – ASHLEY –


    I am a first-time mum who did not know a thing about Montessori. I am grateful to have come across Ashley’s page and attended her Montessori at Home course, which was a great start to understand more about Montessori. All the concepts introduced in the course are very mind-blowing for someone like me who is new to Montessori. I have learnt, and am still learning so much from her course, especially on how we, as an adult can set-up a prepared environment for our little ones to cater to each of their sensitive periods and to facilitate independent learning.

    Having also attended Ashley’s online classes, I have also learnt from her on how I can present an activity to my child. This is something that is hard to learn from a Montessori book. Thank you Ashley! I look forward to learning more from Joyful Montessori!
