In our 3-5s setting we offer a holistic educational approach to continually nurture the development of the children. We can accommodate 36 children aged between 3-5years in our warm and welcoming Montessori environment.
Our ethos is to provide outstanding care for children within Montessori prepared environment to encourage them to become confident, independent, happy and passionate learners.
In our Pre-school setting your child will benefit from the support and guidance offered by our highly experienced Qualified Pre-school teachers. Children continue to follow the Montessori Curriculum with links to the EYFS.
In addition to introducing the children a more structured approach to learning, we encourage them to adopt practices and behaviours which will assist them in becoming independent learners ready for their transition to school.
We often arrange trips for the preschool children to enhance their learning, visiting local farms, theatres, Wisley Gardens and also invite companies to come in for example zoo lab offers a hands-on experience with creepy crawlies.

Miss Cristina runs a Nature Club on Friday mornings. Children experience accelerated learning techniques in a unique environment and develop a new range of skills, communication, literacy and maths.This regular time spent in outdoor spaces, and accompanying reflective practise, develops a child's resilience and reframes a child's own view of risk. Providing realistic challenges for children allows them to work through tasks themselves and with each other, promoting communication, problem solving and social skills. Children are given encouragement to direct their own learning e.g. How they like to learn or what gets them excited. (not cost for this club)
