Our Team

“Now, what really makes a teacher is love for the human child; for it is love that transforms the social duty of the educator into the higher consciousness of a mission.”
- Maria Montessori

Our Founder/Director/Mentor

Mrs. Isabel Angela Seery received her Diploma in Montessori (1995), Diploma in Pre-School and Leadership (2003), and BA in Childhood & Family Education from Edith Cowan University, Australia (2006).


Teaching is Isabel’s calling. While raising two children, she pursued her dream and attained her Early Childhood education qualification and brought her vision to life when she founded Little Woods Montessori.                                                                                          

With over 30 years of experience in the Singapore and International School systems, Isabel has designed a diversified curriculum that is able to meet the needs and challenges of both school systems.


Isabel continues to oversee the curriculum. Under her direction, Montessori principles are applied to a wider context of society and so the children's possibilities for learning and development are vast and encompassing.


The Annual Little Woods Concert is an integral part of the school year where Isabel's passion for song and dance inspires the staff and children to showcase their talents in outstanding performances. 


Mrs. Hafsa Fathah (Diploma in Montessori[1991], Early Childhood Care and Education - Teaching [2011], and  Early Childhood Care and Education - Leadership[2013]).

Hafsa has 27 years of experience in Early Childhood Education. Certified with the prestigious AMI (Association Montessori Internationale) qualification, she maintains a high standard of Montessori education for the children at Little Woods.

Hafsa is passionate about the development of children in today’s world. As the Montessori philosophy not only encompasses the child, Hafsa is driven to collaborate with parents, children, teachers and the community to optimize a holistic education for each child.

This has contributed to the reputation of Little Woods children. At completion of their 5 years with us, they are known for being gracious, responsible, respectful and well-informed members of the community.
