Montessori Activities at Home - Part 2


So this is our second month of montessori at home and we would love to know how you got on with last months! This month we have a couple of simple ideas to try in the kitchen, great for keeping them busy while you're cooking!


I feel that the nursery has been extremely supportive of my son's development and his areas of weakness, working together to achieve the same goal.

The staff are very friendly, helpful and I'm sure all the children past and present will never forget them. My daughter has a particularly good relationship with many of the staff members from across the board and always comes home with stories about all the fun stuff she got up to in the day. The girls are very good role models for her and I absolutely love them and all too pieces. They not only care for the children but I can see their genuine interest in the children's well being is at their core. This makes me feel at ease dropping her off as I know she will be treated equally and fairly at all times. My daughter has a very specific diet and when requested, the staff were happy to facilitate her dietary needs which I found to be amazing as not every establishment would be so accommodating

Both my Daughters aged 18 months and 3 1/2 have settled really well in the nursery thanks to the loving and caring staff. I always found everyone to be very friendly and welcoming. I know my daughters are well looked after and kept busy with lots of activities. My 3 year old particularly enjoys ballet, forest school and soft play. She has really thrived here and learnt to count to 20 and recognises a few letters. Very happy with the nursery overall and would highly recommend it.
