The Montessori Nursery
Montessori’s focus on the individual child allows each child to develop at their own pace, following their own individual path and needs. Through this method students in our nursery have access to a broad and well-planned curriculum.
Teachers adapt and change activities to suit each individual child, rather than expecting the child to adapt to a fixed curriculum or what an adult planned a few days earlier. Our students are given the freedom to learn through ‘hands on’ experiences, investigating and exploring, developing further understanding, confidence and the motivation to learn as they do so. They are not instructed on what to learn and the teacher’s role is to facilitate the child’s learning not to transfer fixed knowledge for the child to commit to memory. Our students learn independence and life skills as we encourage them to think and do as much as they can for themselves.
