2012 we are opening a little Montessori school in the beautiful village hall of
Great Barrington, near Burford. We are
passionate about early years’ education and want to create an environment for
our children that is as safe and caring as ‘home’ but that is also filled with
interesting, stimulating & fun learning activities that they might not
otherwise have access to.
classroom is fully stocked with Montessori materials and we have a lovely &
sunny enclosed garden that the children have free access to. Our teaching will
be mostly based on the Montessori method but we also like to incorporate the
best ideas from other educational philosophies and developmental theories from
around the world including Steiner/Waldorf, Reggio Emilia and outdoor/forest
schools. Our teachers have extensive training in child developmental theory as
well as the curriculum materials and take great care in designing fun learning
activities to suit each individual child’s level and learning style. All in all
we are greatly looking forward to building a small community of happy, engaged
children and having lots of fun.
care runs from 9:00 – 13:30, 5 days a week during regular school terms for children
from 2 years, 9 months to 5 years. We welcome children from all backgrounds
We would love
to hear from you if you are looking for excellent and well-thought through
early years’ education delivered by passionate and highly qualified teachers in
a beautiful rural environment.
