Our daily routine consists of Montessori work cycle as well as free-play, which can be either indoors or outdoors. I follow the Montessori curriculum and the Early Years Foundation Stage to plan activities through observation and assessment to meet children’s individual needs and to build a picture as to what they can do and are happy doing. This enables me to plan for future learning and development with relevant activities offering appropriate challenge. Part of your child’s day will be exploring the great outdoors in the use of the many beautiful parks and exciting day trips.

During the caregiving routines children are active
participants in their care from their youngest age:
■ they are involved
■ they interact
■ they give cues to which I pay attention to and respond to
■ they are engaged through dialogue and a gentle slow pace that adapts
to each child’s unique innate rhythm.
