“Hello and welcome to the Kindergarten room. In our room, we have lots of fun and there is lots to do to occupy inquisitive little minds.
We have free flow over three rooms, including our art room where we can get very messy and enjoy playing with playdough, painting, water play, drawing and sticking, as well as other fun craft activities. We have two play rooms, one for role play and small world activities, the other for reading and literacy activities and construction. In these rooms we have a large variety of toys and activities which help us with our learning and imaginative play. We also have circle time each day where we sing, read stories, dance and talk about our interests.
We have outdoor play twice a day where we enjoy playing games, using the climbing frame and playing with balls and scooters. For our older children in this room, there are daily Montessori lessons where in small groups the children get the opportunity to learn and use Montessori equipment, using gross and fine motor skills whilst gaining independent self-help skills. This room is for the older 2 year olds and younger 3 year olds, the year before they go into our pre-school group.
The term after your child turns three years old we introduce them to Montessori activities and they will begin to have daily Montessori lessons with myself (I am a qualified Montessori Assistant). Your child will have free choice of the activities on the shelves and will receive one to one teaching when learning how to use activities and develop new skills.
We teach and encourage children’s independence which prepares and helps them as they grow older.”
