Siân received her highly commended Montessori Diploma for children aged 2½ to 6yrs at the College of Modern Montessori in 2002. She successfully ran her own company in partnership with Lynne Jackson from 2000 to 2006, focusing on adult stock market education where she also completed a bookkeeping course in 2005. Siân also completed her First Aid Level 1 course with Heart to Heart First Aid in 2006 and then completed an additional First Aid Level 1 course with National First Aid Academy in 2010. In 2006 Siân decided to start her own Montessori Preschool and then opened the doors in January of 2007 and have been going from strength to strength ever since. Siân taught the 3 – 6 year age group for 4 years before taking a on a full time Principal role in 2011, however stayed on as the Grade R teacher. Her love for the classroom got the better of her and she returned to the 3 – 6 year class in May 2012. In August of 2008, Siân attended the Move to Learn, Learn to Move Workshop presented by Susanne van Niekerk from The Brain Connection (Centre for Neuro-Educational Assessment and Learning Efficiency). The Move to Learn program goes back to basics to promote sound Neuro-Educational Development to ensure Learning Readiness.
