With convenient access to parents’ workplaces, we provide an environment where children have the freedom to flourish and are naturally inspired to learn.

We have taken a fresh approach by following the Montessori teaching method and combined it with our knowledge of the Early Years Foundation Phase. Supported by the world of other child theorists, we provide all children in our care with a varied and balanced learning programme.

Our Montessori learning environment

“The child’s work is to create the person they will become. Adults work to perfect the environment, but children work and play to perfect themselves.”– A Montessori principle.

We encourage our children to flourish and naturally inspire them to love learning. We believe that learning is a journey, not a race. Play is the serious work of early childhood. Learning takes place with hands, heart, and head. By protecting the right to childhood, we are creating abilities for life.

We give children freedom of choice and movement in a prepared environment, to pursue their own interests and enjoy their own achievements where dignity, respect and independence are of paramount importance.

Our organic life

We have fantastic organic facilities to provide a safe, stimulating, inspiring environment for the children. We care about the environment and the impact we have on it for our children. We teach them to love and protect the environment, and we do everything we can to give them a healthy start in life.

The meals and snacks we provide are always freshly prepared and organic. Cleaning products are natural and eco-friendly, nappies are biodegradable, and toiletries are organic or made from natural, safe ingredients. Most of our toys and furniture in the nursery are made from wood instead of plastic, creating a relaxing and nurturing environment in which children can learn and develop.
