Bournemouth Montessori Centre houses an authentic Montessori Children's House.
It provides the highest standard of sessional / day care and education. This acknowledges that the early years from birth to six are the most important in our lives and that each individual child must be given every opportunity to explore and develop to their full potential and at their own pace.
We have both a Little House (from birth to approx 2 1/2 years) and a Big House from 2 - 5 years (approx).
The whole of the environment has been carefully designed to meet the needs of the individual child. The rooms are light, airy and welcoming. Children move freely within the safe and well-resourced rooms.
The garden has varied play surfaces, a large decking area, a beautiful climbing frame / slide and play house. As often as weather allows the children take care of the vegetable, herb and flower beds and use the shaded sand play area. We promote the care of living things and looking at the natural world closely, including bird-watching. Each House has its own outside classroom so children can work outside throughout the year.
We have a qualified, enthusiastic and experienced team of Montessori Teachers, many of whom trained at our Training Centre upstairs.
The Children's House is Ofsted registered and is accredited by Montessori Education UK.
Our Ofsted report states:
'Children enjoy the calm and happy environment where they are skilfully encouraged to learn and develop at their own pace. They are valued as individuals, and in turn, learn to value and care for one another. The managers and staff have a clear commitment to continual professional development and have effective systems in place to make sure that this happens.'
