The Little House and Nursery
Children start at The Little House from 2 years old and are introduced to age appropriate Montessori materials, developing fine and gross motor skills, practical life skills, building vocabulary and language, independence and self-esteem.
As your child develops and grows at Harriet House they will move into the Nursery where they will build upon this foundation of learning. The children have freedom of choice of whatever materials they would like to use within our structured environment and as each activity is introduced the children build up a bank of knowledge across all areas of learning. Through teacher observation and assessment the children are able to learn by exploring their own interests, activities can then be extended to ensure that sensitive periods for learning are fully stimulated.
His curiosity, energy and enthusiasm is stimulated and he feels “heard” and supported each day. In his previous busy day care he was one in a crowd, forced to en-masse activities he didn’t think much of. We have noticed how much happier and how much more interested he is to learn, and that the friendships and interactions between the children are kind, inclusive and respectful. We could not recommend it more highly.
