Monteessori & Pre-School

Children aged between 3 and 5 years

In the Montessori and Pre-School room we introduce a structure which balances learning through play, Montessori and educational activities which will help your child prepare for school. We are very conscious that children learn best through doing. Real experiences are what children learn from most easily.

"I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand."
Confucius, Chinese philosopher & reformer (551 BC - 479 BC)

At this stage in a child's development they are able to communicate more clearly and become less frustrated and in turn will be more interested in and able to join in more activities.

While still providing learning opportunities through play using imaginative, constructive, manipulative, outdoor & free play and arts & crafts. The morning is based around the Montessori Method of teaching. The Montessori Method introduces the children to new activities that promote independence, hand/eye co-ordination, fine motor skills and preparation for writing and reading.

This is a Sessional Service from 9.15-12.15 and during school term time only

Our Montessori & PreSchool Education Curriculum includes:

  • Nature and science activities (age appropriate)
  • Writing activities to promote pencil control (colouring, drawing, join the dots, writing their names and numbers)
  • Baking
  • Games and activities to promote concentration
  • Activities and games to further develop childrens understanding of numbers, colours, shapes etc.
  • Cultural activities (continents, flags, people, foods, animals)
  • Activities that promote working in groups and social interactions within a group
  • Children learn at different speeds and the nature of our teaching allows us to assess each child individually.
