Please take a moment to meet our senior staff:
Sonya Kanchan Lal - Principal
I am Sonya and I started Milkshake Montessori in 2004. I have enjoyed watching the nursery grow over the years and I am very proud of the quality of care and education that my team offer children in the local area. I have completed my Montessori teaching Diploma as well as gaining my Early Years Professional Status. I have two children of my own, both of whom attended Milkshake. I can often be found around the nursery helping out with all sorts of different things. I have recently become a qualified Kundalini yoga teacher - for children, pre and post natal yoga, and for adults. I am now working with sound and developing the holistic area of the school.

Emira Domi - Room Leader - Toddler community
Hi my name is Emira and I am a mother of two children. I started my childcare course in 2007 at West Thames College and I took a volunteer placement here at Milkshake. After one years work experience I became a permamant member of staff working as a key worker with children aged 2-5 years old. In 2010 I moved to the toddler community and gained some experience and have now been promoted to room Leader. I really enjoy working with babies and children.
