The Wilkie Family 

Our Head Directress Miss Claire Wilkie has proudly been at the helm of Winkfield Montessori since she and her father Mr William Wilkie founded it in January 1989. 
 
Over the decades, three generations of Wilkies have worked at Winkfield Montessori, with some attending the school in their formative years! 
 
Many of our teachers and staff have also been dedicated to the school since its inception, and are very much seen as an extended part of the Winkfield Montessori family. 

About Winkfield Montessori 

We understand that placing your child into a new school can be a daunting experience. This may be the first time your child has spent a significant amount of time outside the care of family. 
 
Our teachers have the experience and compassion to help children settle into the new routine and environment as seamlessly as possible. 
 
Being parents themselves, our staff anticipate the needs of both children as well as parents at every stage of their journey with us. We welcome regular, bespoke feedback sessions on the progress of your child and provide a personal and detailed School Record of their work and activities. 
Once you take your first steps through our door, you will find that a welcoming, homely atmosphere awaits. There is a wonderful gentle energy as many of our little explorers go about their so very important activities in the classrooms. 
 
A tremendous amount of personal care, intellectual labour and inventive genius has been called into the construction of the specially prepared environment. The classroom is on a Lilliputian scale, with chairs and tables built to children's size enabling them to feel comfortable whilst learning. 
Our classroom environment is not limited to the indoors; children also have free-flow access to our outdoor classroom (see our Gallery). Our AstroTurf area and Outdoor Classroom provide many stimulating hands-on activities throughout the seasons.
