Learning and Development:
Beckenham Montessori Pre-school aims to provide the best possible care and learning environment for children aged 2 to 5 years old.
We are a sessional pre-school, open during term times.
Our main focus is to unlock the potential of your child and give them the opportunity to excel in all areas of development, in an environment which gives them the independence and confidence to learn at their own pace.
We have an excellent team of teaching staff with great experience and qualifications.
The Montessori method was developed by the italian physician and researcher, Maria Montessori, based on her many years working with small children. The first Montessori school was established in 1907, attracting the attention of educators everywhere. Montessori has now become the world's largest education movement with 22,000 schools worldwide.
The philosophy focuses on the immense capacity of children being able to absorb infromation when given the freedom and indepdence to learn at their own pace.
What makes the Montessori approach different, and what makes it work so well is that it is based on this deep understanding of the way children learn; through choosing, trying and doing themselves.
When children are given access to specially developed materials in a prepared environment and the close observation and guidance of a passionate teacher, this leads to an enorously powerful, confidence-building to learning.
