The Session
Our sessions are organized so that the children can choose from and work at a range of activities and in doing so, build up their ability to select and work through a task to its completion.

Circle Time
Every child is welcomed and asked for any news.  Within the circle we discuss a topic, for example the solar system, dinosaurs, birds, art history.

Choosing Time
Every child is then able to go into the environment and select an activity to work on, for example number rods, puzzles, painting, sand play.

Break Time
The children are encouraged to either listen to a story, have free play or enjoy a small snack.

Focus Time
Within the Montessori day there is a focus to each session. All children are encouraged to take part.

Outdoor Time
Within the Montessori day there is also a focus on exploring the outdoors and nature. All children are encouraged to take part. Please ensure your child has weather appropriate outerwear each day.
