Simone Davies is a Montessori teacher who trained through the Association Montessori Internationale (AMI) and is a former Montessori student herself. She runs parent-child classes at Jacaranda Tree Montessori in Amsterdam and has been working in Montessori education for 15+ years. She also helps to set up homes Montessori-style.
Janet Lansbury follows Magda Gerber’s child care philosophy. Magda Gerber was the founder of Resources for Infant Educarers, usually referred to as RIE, an organization that continues to teach her educaring ideas to parents and caregivers. Their philosophy is different from Montessori, although the two share some similarities (i.e. their ideal of respecting infants and treating a baby as a person from the beginning).
