Ms. Cathy - Lead Teacher, Nest

My first home is Sligo in Ireland and I received my Montessori Training in Galway from St. Nicholas Montessori College in Dublin. I have worked in Montessori schools and with children for the past 17 years in Ireland, Chicago and Grand Cayman. I have extensive experience with the Casa age group, however my primary focus is currently the Nest programme, and I was one of the founding teachers to start the Nest. Working with both the infant and casa-aged children, it is important to incorporate the Montessori philosophy to follow the natural development of each child as an individual, and tailor the programme accordingly. My husband Ger and I moved to Grand Cayman in 2005 and we have four amazing children, Cormac, Maeve, Emer and Sean. Whenever we have free time, we love to spend time on the beach.
