About me

Carine Robin

Carine Robin has a Master’s Degree in Psychology, specialising in child psychology. She worked for various social services in her home country of Belgium, before moving to Ireland in 2006.

It was there that she started working in a nursery and discovered Montessori education. After having her first child, her passion for the philosophy grew and she qualified as a Montessori teacher and managed a preschool.

Carine has been running a Montessori based parents and toddler group and coaching families for 9 years. She now also runs an online group for over 14000 parents, sharing her knowledge and passion with people from around the world.

In 2018, Carine realised families needed more support and launched her popular online parenting courses and monthly subscription boxes, full of personally designed Montessori materials.

Carine has also trained with Sarah Ockwell-Smith in BabyCalm and Toddler Calm, with Dr Laura Markham on Peaceful Parenting and most recently, at the prestigious Maria Montessori school in London, as an AMI Elementary  and 0-3 assistant.

Carine is also fully trained in child protection, has an up to date paediatric first aid qualification and is fully DBS cleared (CRB).

Carine Robin at Montessori Family is a real inspiration when it comes to actually implementing Maria Montessori’s principles in your home and with young kids. She offers a refreshingly flexible attitude – not like some hardcore purists you might come across…

Carine is the most amazing Montessori teacher. I employed Carine to manage my Montessori School while I was on maternity leave. Carine then stayed on for longer than thought. It was amazing to think I didn’t have to worry about anything while I enjoyed being at home with my baby. But also not have to worry about rushing back. I have also enjoyed her yoga classes with my now 3 year old. Carine you are amazing. I also cannot thank you enough for everything you done for me. You really are truly amazing in everything you do

As Carine’s tutor in the Montessori Method of Education, I found Carine to be dedicated, hard working and committed to not only her studies but to the Montessori philosophy. She embraced Dr. Montessori’s ethos and put it into practice both in the classroom and at home. Carine was an excellent student.
