You know about Montessori already and you would like practical ideas about how to follow the principles at home.
Or maybe you are overwhelmed by the amount of toys you have, your children are not playing, they complain that they are bored or cannot do anything without your input. You might have some concerned about your baby’s sleep or your toddler’s behaviour or about how to help your children to get along.
I'm Carine Robin
I am a Child psychologist, a Montessori teacher and a yoga teacher for children.
I own a masters in psychology with a major in child psychology. I worked as a child psychologist in Belgium, my country of origin, for several years. I ran my private counselling practice and I worked for various social services, including a foster care agency.
In 2006 I left Belgium for Ireland where I worked in a daycare nursery. While on this job, I discovered the Montessori education.
I developed a passion for Montessori. I later decided to train as a Montessori teacher. I gained my diploma in 2009.
I worked as a Montessori teacher for 2 years in Ireland, before leaving for the United Kingdom where I currently reside.
After moving to the UK, I was able to secure a job as the manager and Montessori lead teacher for two years in a Montessori preschool.
I have been running my own parents and toddlers Montessori community for 8 years.
Apart from being a Montessori teacher and child psychologist, I am also a Yoga teacher for children.
And, most of all, I’m a mother of 2!

Our journey with Carine, it has been going for a long time. Since I took my now 5 years old to her Montessori playgroup and I got hooked on the Montessori way of things! Now more recently, Carine has been helping us to adapt the school dynamics to a more Montessori way and I can see already the benefits in a short time. I also had some advice on sleeping for my second girl and she has always been practical and respectful of the individual child and choices we made. Thank you for all the support!
I first met Carine when she did a group consultation workshop at my home with my sister and a couple of my friends. We were very new to Montessori and needed someone to explain the basic principles and Carine did just that and more in a clear but detailed way.
She answered our many questions, lots of which were about using Montessori to support our children with sen and young babies. She gave us some great ideas in this respect as well as for the other age ranges of children we have, which at the time were 6mths – 12 years old.
It was really helpful seeing the huge array of Montessori materials that Carine brought with her and how they could be used and presented. It was also really helpful understanding how we could ‘live’ Montessori in our homes and how we could make the various rooms in our home child friendly.
I’d highly recommend the home consultations as we all learnt so much, and have all gone on to make lots of positive changes in our homes as a result.
The highly detailed information email that accompanied the consultation has also been really helpful to refer back to.
The consultation workshop was fantastic value for money, very interesting, inspiring and extremely helpful. The only problem is I never seem to have enough baskets!! My husband is always quipping “do you need a basket for that!”
I've benefited from one-to-one coaching with Carine as well as her online group work. Carine is highly professional, warm and practical in her work. She is very supportive and also has a great sense or humour. If you're looking for some help, don't hesitate.
Any one-to-one session gives you access to the self-paced Montessori parenting course.
