    Educator 3-6, 6-12 and Headmaster


    I was born in Annecy and I grew up and lived in this beautiful area surrounded by Lake and mountains. I always wanted to work with children and I found the pedagogy of Maria Montessori fascinating. Everything that I could read in her books seemed obvious and natural to me.  I graduated as a child educator (aged 3 to 6) in 2005 from the Superior Maria Montessori Institute of Paris. Then, I worked in different Montessori schools in Switzerland until 2013.

    In 2014, I have realized my dream. I opened a Montessori school in Sevrier, on the ground floor of my own house, in order to give the children a caring and family framework. The desire to expand the school and the support of many families pushed me to train myself in Montessori pedagogy for 6-12 year olds and to create an atmosphere for 6 and 9 year old children. It is with pleasure that I accompany the children in beautiful experiences and discoveries. "

      English speaking educator 3-6


      Originally from Mauritius, I have always been surrounded by the Montessori pedagogy in my family, and I often accompanied my mother who is the director of a school in Mauritius, to help in the classrooms. My passion for languages ​​and literature led me to England to pursue a Masters in Media and English Literature. Arriving in the region in 2017, I had the opportunity to work in a Montessori school whilst training to become an of educator and thus gaining a deeper knowledge of the child and the Montessori pedagogy.

      Having completed my training at the ‘Institut Supérieur de Maria Montessori’ in Paris, I am delighted to join the Fantine team who offers a stimulating and beautifully designed environment to meet the individual needs of each child. Learning a second language increases creativity, improves verbal skills, and develops an advantage in grasping and formulating concepts. My role as an English-speaking educator is to facilitate the language immersion program, where children will be able to discover and assimilate a second language in a natural environment."

              Originally from Luxembourg, I always dreamed of living in the mountains. I came to Annecy in 2004 to do a Bts in Nature Animation. Passionate about nature, I obtained a Master’s degree in Ecology before working as a ranger in the Vanoise National Park and in the nature reserves of Haute-Savoie. Today I am the mother of two children and working with children seems obvious to me. I am happy to be able to support children on a daily basis in their development and their discovery of the surrounding world. Being able to combine the development of children and their sensitivity to nature is for me a great achievement.
