Our Montessori nursery is a child-led setting following a teaching method that puts children into a prepared learning environment where children can freely choose the activities they want to do to. Children learn through play using specially designed Montessori toys and resources.

Guided by our trained teachers, children have access to self-educating practical play which encourages them to ask their own questions and discover their own answers.

Our Montessori classrooms and outdoor areas are set up to meet the needs for a specific age range as well as the individual personalities of each child to encourage self-learning and collaborative play.

Our carefully prepared environments facilitate movement and activity and only include easily accessible learning material that supports a child’s development.

With a range of activities and resources available to them, all children have the opportunity to engage with the activity of their choice and each other for as long as they like rather than having a set timetable for the day.

Our belief is that an environment set up in this way gives children a deeper level of understanding of the different areas of learning, such as language and mathematics, as well as social interaction and more.

Our Learning resources within the environment are organised by subject area, such as language or mathematics, and are freely available to the child to interact with.

Even if children have the freedom to explore the learning environment as they wish, order and structure is recognised as an important part to enable children to thrive.

As a child is finished with a particular activity, they are taught to take responsibility and put it back in its place before moving on.

The resources and activities in our Montessori classrooms support all aspect of child development.

Our Montessori’s hands-on learning philosophy, children are encouraged to follow their natural instincts and respond to whatever comes to their minds, provoking creative choices from natural curiosity.

 

Montessori is a method of education based around the Montessori theory of self-directed learning, independent exploration, and collaborative play.

Within Montessori early learning environments, children are given a variety of choices in their learning, allowing them to explore and develop their knowledge of the world and develop to their full potential.

In our Montessori nursery you’ll find beautiful spaces designed to nurture your child's creativity and independence. Every child is treated as an individual, encouraging them to explore, experiment, and learn at their own pace. To ensure your child is fully prepared for their next educational milestone, we blend the Montessori programme with elements from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum for a well-rounded experience and to fully support the transition to the next key stage.

We are passionate about Montessori education. We provide an environment in which children develop on an individual basis guided from within by their natural curiosity and by the careful guidance of our experienced Montessori teachers. This nurturing environment fosters self-discipline, self-confidence and an ability to concentrate. Our experience shows that this type of education provides children with a true joy in learning. We see the early years as a preparation for life and a foundation on which everything that follows is built. 'Who' a child is, we feel, is more important than 'what' a child achieves in the form of goals during this time.

About Maria Montessori

Born in Italy in 1870, Maria Montessori was the first female Doctor of Medicine in her country. Through her work with socially deprived and special needs children she devised a unique method of education known as the Montessori method. She found through further study, observation and experiments that her principles applied to all children. The Montessori methods has had an impact on education in general and many countries adopted them. Her insights and ideas for helping children grow into healthy, well-rounded adults are as relevant as ever
