Welcome to Junior Montessori. In our bright and colourful room you can spend all morning playing. We have shelves bursting with fun things to explore. Our practical life materials gives each child the opportunity learn encouraging independence, helping with motor-skills, developing concentration & also hand-eye co-ordination. Working on these skills will bring out great confidence prepare the children for all kinds of exciting tasks ahead!

We look out onto our flower beds and playground where we run about, play ball, park cars and dig for ages in the sand. The slide is there too and sometimes we whiz down our fire fighter’s pole! When we’re finished racing about we can chill out and chat.
