A couple who run a Montessori school in Bolton Abbey have received a national award.

Jane and Graham Lord, of Wharfedale Montessori School and Nursery, were selected for a Montessorians of the Year award at the 2014 Montessori Schools Association conference.

The award, is in recognition of the couple’s determination to deliver the best Montessori has to offer to the children attending the school.

Jane and Graham started the nursery 23 years ago, which led to a Montessori community at Strid Wood.
