About UsThe setting offers a great mix of the Early years Foundation stage (EYFS) programme and Montessori philosophy to guide our educational programme.
The Montessori method was developed by Italian educator and doctor Maria Montessori. The basic principle of the Montessori philosophy is to ‘follow the child’ and hold immense faith in the child’s potential. The Montessori pedagogy uses a prepared environment of didactic material to encourage independent hands on discoveries. It aims at the wholistic development of a child. We at Crayons Montessori aim to nurture a child’s inherent interests and curiosity to stimulate a life long journey of enjoyable self-learning. The Early years foundation stage curriculum compliments our child centred approach too
At Crayon Montessori we have a purpose-built room and toilet for childminding. The setting also has a large outdoor area to use regularly. Each of these environments are made safe and clean to high standard prior to the children arriving.
The environment is set up each day with fun filled activities in accordance with 7 areas of learning set out in the EYFS and Montessori method. Children are also free to choose different activities all day. We believe in hands on learning and so are always involved in your child’s play.
