Daisy Harrison

Advisor and Partner

Daisy started her teaching career as a Montessori teacher in a pre school in central London. Daisy was passionate about early years education and wanted to further her teacher training and gained her BA in Early Years Education and then went on to achieve The Early Years Professional Status, which is considered the highest early years education qualification in the UK.

Daisy left the pre school to teach Kindergarten at Thomas’s School in London and then went on to teach Kindergarten and run the Early Years Programme at Garden House School, London. During this time, Daisy would visit local pre schools and soon realised there was a need for high, quality pre school care in London that would not just prepare children for Kindergarten but for life too. Daisy’s dream was to create a school that offered the highest standards, set within a broad curriculum which would inspire enjoyment, learning and achievement. Daisy put together a team of teachers passionate about early years and in 2006 opened her first pre school, Miss Daisy’s Nursery School. Due to the high demand for places at her school, Daisy has grown her business and there are now currently three Miss Daisy’s Nursery Schools in central London. These schools feed to the top elementary schools in London.

Daisy also co created a systematic synthetic phonics reading scheme with award winning educational apps, called hip hop hen. So far these apps have won Editors Choice on iTunes as well as Best Education Resource and are being developed into phonic reading books for home and school use.

Daisy brings to Ethos her valuable expertise and experience as a teacher, director and school owner and most importantly her love for early years education.
