About Us

A fulfilled child is a happy child.  Our purpose is to help each child take his or her first steps towards self-fulfilment.  We aim to generate security, trust and independence in the child, as well as encouraging them to be polite, considerate and kind, thus preparing them to fit into any situation and to move on to their next school with confidence. The Little House is a small and beautifully equipped Montessori Nursery School for children between the ages of 2 to 5 years, and provides an excellent stepping stone between home and school.  The school is for a maximum of fourteen children with two classes and three qualified and experienced staff. Consequently we provide the rare opportunity for individual attention and a close personal relationship with each child. It is our policy that each child should be allowed to develop naturally at his or her own pace. A teacher should never be a taskmaster but a guide and helper.  Her role is to encourage positive attitudes, provide stimulus and to lay the foundations for a child to enjoy his or her work and to encourage a continuing interest in what he or she is learning. Children of this age have an absorbent mind for knowledge; they desire stimulation and this should be found in a full and exciting environment through which they can explore and learn. As well as a wide range of educational equipment, the children are involved in daily group activities including, art and craft, topic work, nature study, singing, music and creative play. Our aim is to develop the whole child and make their day fun. Our satisfaction is that a child should look forward to coming to school each day and be sorry to leave us when the time comes for him or her to move on; but he or she should do so, with excitement and a keenness to seize new opportunities. Please telephone or email if you would like to make an appointment, receive a prospectus or learn more about us.
