Owner & Director

Miss Bri

Miss Bri is the owner and Director of Montessori School of Cayman. She is also the Lead Directress in our Casa environment.
She actually attended Montessori School of Cayman (MSC) herself from 1993-1995. Miss Bri received her BA (Hons) in Education and Early Childhood Development in Bristol, England. She then went on to The University of Oxford and received her MSc in Education and Child Development. After some teaching experience, she made the decision to follow the path of Montessori and complete her AMI Montessori Diploma (2.5-6) training in London. Miss Bri moved back to Cayman after the end of her training and assisted in the beginnings of the Montessori programme at Village Montessori when she was hired as their Head Casa Teacher. In the summer of 2016, Ms Peggy passed the baton to Miss Bri, and she took over Montessori School of Cayman (even moving in upstairs!). Since then, Bri has made amazing changes to the school and the building itself to allow for more indoor and outdoor classroom spaces. Bri has dedicated her work at the school to develop the Montessori curriculum and programmes offered to ensure a holistic and authentic delivery of Montessori education. In her free time, Bri loves to spend time with her friends and family, spend time at the beach or in the sea, exercise and travel.
