Montessori Learning at Twisty Tails Nursery Stanmore: Fostering Independent, Hands-on Education for Your Child

At Twisty Tails Nursery Stanmore, we are proud to offer a Montessori-inspired approach to early childhood education. Our Montessori Learning program is based on the renowned educational philosophy developed by Dr. Maria Montessori, which emphasizes independence, hands-on learning, and respect for the child’s individuality. Our Montessori Learning program is designed to provide a nurturing and engaging environment that promotes the holistic development of each child, fostering a love for learning that lasts a lifetime.

Here’s what you can expect from our Montessori Learning program at Twisty Tails Nursery:

Child-Cantered Education: In our Montessori Learning program, children are at the centre of the learning process. We believe that each child is a unique individual with their own interests, abilities, and learning pace. Our Montessori-trained teachers provide individualized guidance and support, allowing children to progress at their own pace and follow their natural curiosity, building a strong foundation for lifelong learning.

Hands-on Learning: Our Montessori Learning program is characterized by hands-on, experiential learning. We provide a carefully prepared environment with a wide range of Montessori materials and activities that are designed to engage children’s senses, promote exploration, and encourage independent learning. Children have the freedom to choose activities that interest them and engage in self-directed learning, fostering their creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

Practical Life Skills: Practical life skills are an integral part of the Montessori philosophy. Our Montessori Learning program emphasizes the development of everyday life skills such as dressing, pouring, cleaning, and food preparation, which promote independence, coordination, and concentration. These skills also lay the foundation for the development of fine and gross motor skills, as well as cognitive and social-emotional skills.

Multi-Age Classrooms: Our Montessori Learning program features multi-age classrooms where children of different ages learn and play together. This promotes a sense of community, peer learning, and social development. Older children have the opportunity to mentor younger children, while younger children learn from their older peers, creating a collaborative and inclusive learning environment.

Respect for Nature and the Environment: Montessori philosophy emphasizes respect for nature and the environment. Our Montessori Learning program includes activities that promote sustainability, nature exploration, and environmental awareness. Children engage in gardening, recycling, and caring for animals, developing a sense of responsibility and respect for the world around them.

Parent Partnership: We believe that parents are an integral part of a child’s education. Our Montessori Learning program encourages open communication and collaboration between parents and teachers. We provide regular opportunities for parents to be involved in their child’s learning journey, including parent-teacher conferences, workshops, and parent education sessions, fostering a strong partnership between home and school.

Our Montessori Learning program at Twisty Tails Nursery is designed to provide a nurturing and empowering educational experience for children, setting them on a path of lifelong learning and personal growth. We are committed to fostering independence, creativity, and a love for learning in each child, while respecting their individuality and unique developmental needs.
