The Montessori approach sets children on a journey for life. We achieve this by being completely child centred in everything we do. Our beautiful nursery spaces are designed and organised so children can be independent and lead their own learning. They make choices about the resources they want to use, whether to be inside or outside and when to stop for a snack. Through observation, considered and sensitive adults decide when it is best teach a new skill and when it is best to stand back. Montessori teachers never dominate the learning environment and as a result, children are continuously engaged and motivated to follow their interests. We allow children the time and space to become absorbed in their own learning
The each classroom is divided into areas. Practical life gives the children the opportunity to practise the skills of everyday life and helps them to develop concentration and develop co-ordination of mind and body. The sensorial materials supports children to use their senses to learn. Through these materials they are encouraged to order and classify the physical properties of the world they live in. The materials for mathematics help the children to learn and really understand mathematical concepts using concrete materials.Children are prepared to write and read from the minute they come into the class through a series of activities that gradually build all the individual skills required so that when they are ready it is just a natural progression. Geography, history, biology, botany, zoology, art and music are covered with a hands-on approach based on the fact that children learn most effectively from their own experiences.
You are the most important teacher your child will ever have. We work very hard to build strong relationships with all our families.
We want what you want and that is to do the very best by your child. Together we make a difference.
