Front Groups - Greenfields School and its offshoots

Postby tamasin-sp » Sat Nov 07, 2009 4:02 pm

Whilst picketing in East Grinstead on the IAS (International Associaciation Scientologists) on 16/10/09, to get to the picket I walked up Railway Approach past "Scientologys Effective Education Center". Right next to it, there was a new chilcare facility called Montessori Nursery catering for 6 months-3 year olds. There was someting about the place and the way the signs were set up that made me feel these two places were incorporated.I wanted to take pictures but my camera failed me. My companion told me Motessori was a well established child care facility and nothing to do with Scientology. I had never heard of it before and couldn't shake the feeling that the two went together.

Later that day whilst walking back down Railway Approach, I brought it up again and this time an Exscientologist told me it was Scientology.

Research so far has shown me there are many links and they all point to Scientology.In view of my own childhood and that of many other children who grew up in Scientology and the Sea Org nothing gets my back up more than Scientology preying on children. Scientology education at the very least is damaging is damaging for children, at its worst it can ruin your entire life.

Here are the links starting with:

The Effective Education Center

Montessori - Childrens House School

Notice the Ofsted approved notice and backed by The times and Daily Mail

http://www.childrenshousenursery.com/

Notice also in tiny green print at the bottom Greenfields School.Greenfields school is a Scientology run School.

http://www.greenfieldsschool.com/educational_trust.htm

On all these websites the design is done by www.wilsondesign.org and on googling any of the above I found the company called "Hodkin &Company Solicitors". The very same Solicitors that sent a friend of mine a "cease and desist" letter to stop him from protesting against the so called "church"of Scientology.Way to go OSA.

Good work, tamasin-sp!

http://www.greenfieldsschool.com/educational_trust.htm wrote:In 2000, the Trust set up the Greenfields HELP Centre in East Grinstead as a community service, a tutoring and literacy programme for children and adults in the local area delivered free of charge. HELP stands for Hollywood (where the Project was started) Education and Literacy Project and is funded by the Trust and by donations.


Tom Cruise is a founding member of H.E.L.P. See this 2003 article from People magazine: http://www.studytech.org/articles/people1.htm

Community service, sure. Cruise knows and every Scientologist at the Greenfields Trust knows that Study Tech is Scientologists' "bridge to society." (Ref. HCOB 4 April 1972R Ethics and Study Tech.)

It's the same movie in which Isaac Hayes plays Man at LEAP Memphis. :roll:

Montessori School - Trefoil Farm, East. Grinstead

Postby tamasin-sp » Sat Nov 07, 2009 6:33 pm

Have spoken to Trefoil Farm Montessori School and am still suspicious and not whole heartedly convinced.

Was told there is nothing they can do if someone uses their teaching methods and name.

I said "the trouble is they use L. Ron Hubbards teaching methods and those methods have caused a lot of children grief and harm". He said he had heard some of the stories, and I recommended he visit exscientologykids.com, which he didn't want to do and at that point became a little tounge tied.

He assured me that they were well aware of Scientology and anyone in the East.Grinstead area was aware what was a scientology run organization or not.In fact they had had parents of children who were concerned with regards Scientology.

I told him that if Scientology was linked to the name Montessri it would discredit Montessori, his reply to that was "we are International" and my reply was "presicely, if Montessori schools set up all over the place that are really Scientology schools that would discredit Montessori".

He thanked me for phoning.

Been researching most of the afternoon and can't find any more links re Montessori School in Railway Approach in East. Grinstead and Montessori School as an International body.

However, found another couple leads on something else re nursery groups,gonna keep looking.

With regards Montessori, I shall contact their head office as I do feel Scientology should not be allowed to get away with this.If they have done it in East. Grinstead, they'll do it elsewhere, as we all know.

Thank you Caroline for those links to Tom Cruise.

I wonder if books, bottles and ashtrays can cure dyslexia too.

Thanks, tamasin. There's no trademark for Montessori training*
however Montessori schools use a lot of special equipment and have fully trained teachers. I bet that pretend-Montessori school has some materials (especially clay, which Montessori advocated long before Hubbard) but trained Montessori teachers? I doubt it.


Hubbard never uttered the name "Montessori" as far as I know. Does that make Scientologists "squirrels" if they use and quote Montessori?

Montessori was linked with Scientology in Toronto last year.

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/toronto/story/2008/09/18/bambolino-school.html wrote:Some parents are upset with a study method introduced by a Montessori school in northwest Toronto, which they say has its roots in the Church of Scientology.

Parents said the owner of the Bambolino Montessori Academy, a private school, told parents last week that it was introducing a new learning method called applied scholastics. [...]

Greenfields Educational Trust is the corporate name for Greenfields
School, the Scientology school in Sussex which uses Hubbard's
"educational technology".... I have tried to find - in vain - ...some independent
assessment of the school's performance. It appears that it has so far
managed to avoid being subjected to a government inspection, unlike
virtually every other school in the county. 2002 comment by Chris Owen at http://www.lermanet.com/reference/Scien ... ngland.htm

Greenfields in Forest Row created the education centre in East Grinstead town centre, the building set back for the Montessori play group used to be an EFL extension from the education centre but I suppose they have a new use for it. The first nursery years at Greenfields have been montessori for a few years now also. This isn't really a secret though.
Listening to lots of different views
rather than just one means you can decide for yourself, instead of being told what to think.
Don't you agree? You don't have to of course.

Until the 16/10/2009 I had never heard of Montessori, Scientology yes, Montessori, no. Would I have linked the two together,no.

The person I was with has been a long time protester against Scientology and he felt I was mistaken in my thinking.I had a gut feeling, because of the way it was set out.Made to look very different, yet at the same time the same.If I had seen the Montessori building any where but East. Grinstead and right next door to the humorously titled "Effective Education Center", I wouldn't have given it a second thought.

Except to think, that looks like a nice place to go have a look at, possably taking my young children to their child care and teaching facilities. Place that same building any where else, with its Offsted approved and supported by the Times and Daily Mail stickers, and what do you have - great packaging. It says "come in and visit, we are a great kid friendly place for your child to grow and learn" Regardless of anything else, once inside are you then won over sufficiently to place your children in the care of a money grabbing cult without realising that years down the line your child will be indoctrinated sufficiently to eventually be conned into joining the Sea Org and becoming one of the elite of the world.What they will not tell you is we need "wog" children because we have aborted most of our own.

Thank you Jono, I personally had no idea about the Montessori link, now I will make it my business to know and also to inform others.

Scientology is always worse than you think.
