Zainab Shamis-Saleem

Whilst expecting her first child, Zainab set up The Montessori Studio to allow Montessori to become more accessible and demystify some of the ‘elitist’ stereotypes of this way of learning. She particularly wanted to focus on those for whom looking after young children feels like a whole new world. 9 years and two of her own children later, she has gone from nursery settings to home-schooling to teaching parents how to implement the Montessori approach in their own homes. @themontessoristudio
