Charlotte Awdry

Hello Friends, 

I am Charlotte, a qualified Montessori teacher and founder of Enriching Environments, and my mission is to help parents and caregivers apply the Montessori at-home approach to everyday life. For over 10 years I have been helping parents and caregivers bring joy to home life with young children. My teachings, Montessori workshops and tools allow you to give this important time the attention it deserves, but with an air of playfulness.

Passionate about raising humans, my teachings aim to inspire you to create environments that nourish your children in mind, body and spirit.

Six years ago, when my daughter was a few weeks old, I had a vision of writing a book about Montessori in the Home and the joy that it brings to children and parents alike.  Three years ago, I started Enriching Environments, a grassroots homeschooling project with other intrepid families who were curious about Montessori and what it could offer their family.  So from this seed of an idea in the newborn fog of a first child to working with dozens of families, and sharing my vision with the world via Instagram, here we are today.  I am so delighted to walk with you on your parenting journey!

You can access my teachings in various ways such as; joining a workshop, registering for my 6-week online course, arranging bespoke 1-to-1 parent mentoring or simply taking a look at the articles and downloads on the website. Join me on Instagram where I also host lives and share videos and tips. Following my mantra of “keeping things simple, ordered, and beautiful” I guide you through the often bewildering territory of creating the perfect space for your child.

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