Montessori Room:

Our Montessori caters for up to 16 Children each day. The class is run by our wonderful Montessori Teacher and Montessori Lead Educator Rachel and Sandra.

The curriculum is based on the Montessori Method of teaching and the environment, class room, covered outdoor garden room and equipment are all based on this.

Getting the children out playing in the fresh air is a very important part of our day, we have a wonderful natural garden, with swings, mud kitchens & natural play materials & we also have an all weather garden, with slides, bikes, cars, scooters and climbing frames & play houses.

We prepare children for school and get them familiar with and the workings of a classroom environment. The children work independently and as a group in this area. ECCE Free Pre-School Grant is available.
