Our Philosophy We offer a unique blend of the Montessori method of education with full daycare from the time the child enters our nursery as a baby through all the stages of growth and development until the child’s transition into our Montessori  school. Our aim is to foster and encourage self-confidence, independence and an enquiring mind in each child. The nursery experience assists the child’s social development; children learn to be considerate, respectful and to realise that even the youngest child has his or her role to play in the daily life of the Montessori environment. We consider the Montessori method the best way to prepare a child for a fulfilled adult life.
Dr. Maria Montessori’s method of education has proved highly successful throughout the world.  We endeavour to follow the principles set out by her. Every child is a unique person with creative potential, the drive to learn and the right to be treated as an individual. As children are profoundly affected by society and their immediate surroundings we strive to create an environment in harmony with the child’s natural development. Children must be given freedom to work and move around within limits that enable them to see themselves as part of a group. Materials are used to help children to master and explore their environment through a variety of activities, which require children to be both active and reflective. We observe the children on a regular basis both individually and as a group to assist their full development. Children are encouraged to work at their own pace either individually or in co-operation with others. We believe that a culturally diverse and mixed-age environment is essential.
