Music and movement, nature study and art are also important parts of the Montessori curriculum.
We are concerned with a child’s whole development and with this in mind they will be introduced to simple historical facts, geography and science. Children thoroughly enjoy learning all sorts of factual information if they are presented in an enlightened way.
We agree with Dr. Maria Montessori that “The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six…..”
It is during these years that the children lay down the foundations upon which they will build. We aim to help them develop good basic skills and habits upon which they may build and grow both socially and academically.
All adults at the nursery respect each child’s individuality, we speak to them as we would wish them to speak to us. Good manners and behaviour are encouraged by example and also by practical games which encourage thoughtfulness.
We welcome all children to our nursery – we support “special” children by providing one to one support if necessary and actively seek funding to assist when applicable.
Throughout the year various information evenings will be provided for parents to further explain our methods and to help you fully understand what a busy, productive time is planned for your children throughout the year.
