Richard
RichardSchool Director and Creator
I did a double Bachelors in French and German at university in the UK and decided to travel, visiting and working in China, Japan, India, France and Germany. I have had many rich experiences, as an English teacher, a translator and interpretor, a buyer for civil engineering projects, a Eurpoean project manager for IBM and then I created a communication/marketting company: providing visual graphics and storyboards for advertising and film.

The birth of my first daughter set the scenes for change, and after some soul-searching I studied at the Montessori Institute in Paris and then became a Montessori teacher for 3-6 year olds in a Parisian Montessori Billingual school. My wife, got transferred to Montpellier, where there was no Montessori school for me or my children. With my wife’s support we created the Maison des Enfants. During my time as director I have continued to build on my skills and have completed 4 years psychotherapist training with Isabelle Filliozat’s multi-disciplinary school. I am the Director of the school and also one of the English speaking Montessori teachers.
