We aim to develop every aspect of the child’s personality and embrace the Montessori education, which shares the core principles of the Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines. We provide a happy, stimulating child orientated school in which the children can explore and learn freely. The classroom is based on the Montessori prepared environment and allows each child to experience the balance of freedom and structure. We are passionate about children and provide an education in which they are able to develop on an individual basis guided from within by their natural curiosity.
WHY CHOOSE MONTESSORI?
The Montessori method allows your child to learn in a way that he feels most natural – by doing things by themselves. Gradually, the child builds a strong sense of independence, coupled with an ability to sustain their concentration. Their confidence grows as there range of skills increases. The method is founded on the child’s natural curiosity and love of learning. The environment is attractive to children in being generally simple, child-sized and capable of correction by themselves.
