Welcome to the new Montessori People website!

Friday February 2, 2018

As a nursery actively encouraging creativity and development, we thought it was about time to give our old website the revamp it deserved – and here’s the finished product! We wanted to capture the happiness and harmony of our children in the website’s brand-new design and we think it represents us perfectly. For those of you who are new to The Montessori People, here’s a little about us…

Our Nursery

The Montessori People Nursery is a friendly school based in Thornaby using comprehensive Montessori methods to ensure our children are happily learning and gaining independence every day. We understand the importance of exploration and engagement when a child is going through their early years, and our experienced team apply specific teaching techniques to ensure they learn in a productive way.

The Montessori Way

Montessori is a unique way of guiding a child through education, shaping their personalities by embedding politeness, enthusiasm and a will to learn. This powerful approach to teaching is a method recognised across the UK and developed by Maria Montessori. It is a proven fact that children learn through understanding and doing rather than being told, and so Montessori materials have been carefully designed to help children gain confidence in themselves while recognising where they may have gone wrong. One of many great quotes from Maria Montessori states, “The child’s progress does not depend only on his age, but also on being free to look around him.”
