Montessori is a proven and powerful approach to education which is based on a deep understanding of the way children learn. While it is suitable for children of any age, at nursery level, it puts them on the path to becoming a confident, self-motivated learner at the earliest stage possible.
At the heart of the success of Montessori, is an in-depth knowledge of how children learn – through choosing, trying and doing themselves. With special materials, a prepared environment and the close guidance of a teacher, the result is a hugely effective, confidence-building approach to learning.
The Montessori People’s ethos is based on the proven fact that children learn through understanding and doing, rather than being told. This manifests into a confidence and joy in learning among children as they develop self-belief, satisfaction in success and abilities as problem solvers.
Montessori materials are carefully designed to help children understand where they might have gone wrong. And, more importantly, to enable them to work out ways of correcting themselves, without being told how to do so.
Everything we do at The Montessori People Nursery School has been intrinsically designed to set a child up for success. The children will take part in a variety of activities, whilst being closely observed by our teachers who gently encourage them to move to more challenging lessons once simpler ones have been mastered.
With highly qualified childcare professionals, we embed confidence, trust and a conscientious nature among our children.
Our Nursery School, in Thornaby, is ran by extremely knowledgeable yet sensitive staff who have been specially trained to help children appreciate their importance in the wider world.
In a fun and friendly environment, we encourage children to care about themselves, others and the world around them.
The mission of The Montessori people is to provide experiences that are:
We strive to cultivate each child’s desire to learn and to foster their natural curiosity and love of knowledge.
It is important that, as parents, you fully trust the nursery you choose to bring the best out of your child. Make sure you’ve compared different environments and teams before you choose which is right for you.
Children develop positively in an outdoor environment. We make sure our children spend plenty of time out in the fresh air, allowing their skills to flourish as much as possible.
Many nurseries won’t have freshly prepared food, so it’s always a good idea to check up on this before you choose your nursery. All our meals are freshly prepared on site by our experienced chef.
Before making your decision, make sure you have a good conversation with the nursery manager to find out as much about the nursery as possible.
We have an outstanding Ofsted report and are very proud of our parental recommendations.
Children get used to their teachers, and we understand that consistent staffing is important to the experience we offer. We have set room teams to instil continuity, and we feel this aids the child’s settling in period and helps develop strong attachments within each room.
