Phoebe Child, born in England, was a student of Dr. Maria Montessori beginning in 1929. She, along with her lifetime companion, Margaret Homfray, worked with Dr. Montessori, travelling with her to Ireland to translate her lectures in teacher training. In 1946, Dr. Montessori worked with Child and Homfray to start the first English teacher training program, the St. Nicholas Training Centre for the Montessori Method of Education. The training scheme offered full-time residence training in two former embassy sites in Princes Gate in London, as well as a correspondence course. Phoebe Child lived in the college with Margaret Homfray for many years and trained thousands of Montessori teachers from all over the world.
