Bristol is twinned with Puerto Morazán in Nicaragua, and a link has been made over many years with teachers in 3 nursery schools. Thanks to funding from Bristol City Council and the generosity of Clifton Children’s House parents, these teachers have received training in the Montessori approach and some of the specialised materials have been sent to them. Through learning about Montessori and putting it into practice, the teachers have changed their methodology in the classroom, and speak with joy of how the children love to choose their work and learn independently. We continue to support this work and organise at least one fund-raising event each year.
