    Educator 3-6, 6-12 and Headmaster


    I was born in Annecy on April, 28th 1979. I grew up and lived in this beautiful area surrounded by the Lake and the 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.

    Today, 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."

              • I was born in Lyon the 28th July 1995 and I lived my childhood in the Lyon countryside in Ain.

                Since my teenage years, I went through various small "jobs" until the day I got a job at the Château des Echelles leisure centre in Ambérieu en Bugey. It was my first step in the field of early childhood.

                It was then that I decided to continue my training to be able to provide support for the children in the best possible way. I undertook a DEUST Agapsc animation course (university diploma in social work and education) which I finished in June 2018.

                I had the opportunity to develop my knowledge and skills through various experiences in animation and management of groups of young people, where I constantly sought to apply what I knew of the Montessori pedagogy.

                In 2021, I seized the opportunity to work at the very heart of this pedagogy as an assistant at the Montessori Fantine school.

                Educator 6-12


                I was born and raised in Montpellier. After high school I spent 3 years at Montpellier Business School. As I did not wish to continue on this path, looking at opportunities in the field of children's education quickly became the obvious way forward. That is how I discovered the profession of Montessori educator. This field was completely aligned with my values, and in 2021, I decided to enroll in the AMI Montessori training, for the 6-12 year old students, in Montpellier. It was an opportunity for me to deepen my knowledge and gain new experiences through several internships in various Montessori schools. I graduated as a Montessori educator 6-12 years in July 2022. Keen to explore the magnificent setting offered by this region, I decided to settle here and join the adventure at Fantine for the start of the school year in September 2022.
