Vinni has been leading the team at Paint Pots in Bayswater since 1997. Having spent the first part of her adult life travelling and working in various jobs, she found her vocation when she studied at St Nicholas Montessori College. Studying Maria Montessori’s philosophy of education was such an inspiration and allowed her to work within the imaginative and creative world of children. She first joined Paint Pots as a student in 1994 and despite visiting many other educational establishments feels very lucky to have found a school that reflects her belief and passion.
The Bayswater Team
Miss Celia’s connection with Paint Pots began as a parent in 1994, which was the first introduction to the Montessori Philosophy. Celia felt so inspired that she decided to do the Montessori training. She became a group teacher in 1994. After two years Celia left to have her second child, returning again as Deputy Head in 2006.
Catherine joined Paint Pots as a group teacher in 2016. She has previously worked helping families relocate to London before retraining and completing her Diploma in Early Childhood at Montessori Centre International. She loves the approach and method of the Montessori philosophy. In her holidays she travels extensively.
