"All our babies and children really need is an environment in which they can unfold; a place in which they can explore, follow their interests, and develop into capable human beings.”


Enriching Environments creates inspiring spaces for children that make our hearts sing. An Enriching Environment is one that offers our children a simple, ordered and beautiful space that allows them to unfold at their own pace.

We connect like-minded families who seek a simple, holistic way of life for their children, and for their families. We aim to inspire and guide them with a way of preparing their homes and thus raising their children in a way that feels joyful and empowering.

Enriching Environments inspires spaces for children that nourish their heart, soul and mind. The child is an active, not a passive participant in their environment.  This approach is based on allowing the child to experience the wonder and beauty of the world around them from a simple, beautiful and ordered environment. This approach calls for our presence, self awareness and a strong sense of playfulness.

When first stepping into an Enriching Environment you immediately notice that something is different; there is a serenity and peace that seems at odds with our image of early childhood. The environment seems to meet the child where they are; everything they need is at their fingertips and the purposeful work available to them allows them to grow into capable human beings with their own intrinsic sense of self.

“Parenting is a serious business that shouldn’t be taken too seriously.”

Enriching Environments brings back the joy in being at home with young children, giving it the attention and importance it deserves, but with an air of playfulness. 

Passionate about raising humans, I envision inspiring parents to create environments that nourish children in mind, body and spirit.

With the easily deliverable instruction of just keeping things “simple, ordered, and beautiful” I guide all primary caregivers through the often bewildering territory of creating the perfect space for their child.

Having taught in London and Cape Town, after qualifying from Montessori St. Nicholas in London, I am now at home with my 2 and 4 year olds, living in Dubai where I enjoy the year-round sunshine, my morning yoga practice, and all things that make my heart sing.
