Clare Healy Walls is the founder and leader of Waterpark Montessori International (WMI) www.waterparkmontessori.com. She spent over 20 years as a Montessori educator in the classroom and since 1981 she has been training adults.  She has been extensively involved in the research and development of training programmes and Montessori schools for all age groups (Birth -18 years). Her personal interest in Jungian psychology and BodySoul Rhythms (as developed by Marion Woodman 1928-2018) has encouraged her to use Maria Montessori’s philosophy for people of all ages, highlighting the common themes of life from birth to adulthood.  This has also led to her work with parents.  She believes parents cannot be “taught” directly but should be guided to reflect upon their experiences.

Having qualified as a Montessori educator for pre-school and school, with Montessori St Nicholas, she later received an MA in Education (Management) from the Open University.  She is the author of the series (6) At the Heart of Montessori, Montessori in a Nutshell, The Conscious Parent, and her most recent publication is a handbook of stories and reflection for parents, The Conscious Parent in Action. www.waterparkbooks.com

Clare has five children, nine grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She lives in Ireland with her partner, Andrew, overlooking the sea where she loves to wander around Cork harbour in her motor boat.
