In 1935 Mrs Monzani earned her teachers certificate as an AISTD ( Associate imperial society of teachers of dancing) and in 1936 Mrs Monzani would go to Buckingham Palace on Thursdays to teach royal classes to Elizabeth, Margaret and relations i.e Glousters and Kents children. Monzani School of dancing was officially established in 1947 in the Great Missenden and Amersham areas. Mrs Monzani started classes in Amersham Community Centre in the original barn hall teaching ballet, tap and ballroom classes. During Mrs Monzani’s years of teaching, she has also taught in many local private and county schools within the area.
Now the school is managed by a close team of dance teachers and Miss Karen teaches the children here at CSP Montessori School. We believe that ballet is a perfect activity for early years as it promotes, balance, coordination, poise and most importantly confidence. Miss Jack has known Mrs Henry (the Principal of Monzani School of Dance) for nearly 20 years as both her daughters attended ballet sessions from being two and a half until they were eighteen.

As a Montessori, we explore the technique of hands on learning, this includes cooking. The children at our setting cook every week, this promotes an understanding of foods, the body and the concept of processes producing an outcome. It also increases the use of fine motor skills and allows the children to demonstrate interest and concentration in a fun and different way.
Mindfulness and Yoga
Every week the children are encouraged to take time together to practice yoga and mindfulness. This gives the children a moment to think about their bodies, how they are feeling and be aware of those around them. At Chalfont St Peter Montessori School, we combine fun yoga stretches, mindful breathing, calm discussions as well as many other techniques in order to encourage and promote a calm, respectful environment, that increases the individual child's resilience to tricky situations for the children.
