All of our staff are qualified to Level 3 and above and the setting is led by a qualified teacher who has over 25 years of Montessori teaching experience. Our specialist Early Years teaching staff are trained to nurture and bring out the best in your child at such a vital stage in their development.
At Winkfield we have a large bright hall where all the children can play together during free flow time, here there are also designated focus areas which are accessible at all times. We use many Montessori Maths and literacy equipment and both Maths and Literacy are taught in small groups and the focus in Literacy is on phonics.
2 Year old Room
We also have a dedicated two year old room which is carpeted to allow the younger children to work on the floor in comfort, we have also found that the younger children settle much quicker in the smaller, cosier space. Here we have many Montessori activities which are perfect for their fine motor skill development
From here you can flow naturally into our outdoor garden which has sand, water and a mud kitchen as well as a quiet area, this allows our 2 year olds the freedom to play in a secure and peaceful environment.
Outside we have a large main playground, which we set out each day with a variety of toys, we also have a large slide and climbing wall and a mud pit and mud kitchen where the children can get truly messy.
This room leads into our dedicated messy play room where all children can explore the joys of creativity. Tuff tray activities, painting, sand, foam and many other varied activities are offered on a daily basis. This room is open every day thus giving all children the opportunity to try out new activities.
So much to learn
Language, numeracy, creativity, science and discovery, music and physical activity are all incorporated into the day through a wide and engaging range of play and practical activities.
Your child will enjoy freedom to make choices about their activities within the structure of the curriculum. The Nursery staff will work closely with them while they develop language skills, stretch their imagination, discover new concepts and materials and learn to share and socialise with their classmates and embrace diversity. All the while they will be continually observed and their skills, interests and needs recorded as part of their individual learning plan.
