"From the Latin to lead"

Teaching is how one adult instructs a child, education is a two way process

"We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing"

Play is a child’s work and develops the right brain (ART, CREATIVE) this is vital for left brain (Cognitive) development

"Sit on your hands and voice"

When a child is at play it is all too easy for an adult to step in and disturb the play or truncate the play

"We can learn so much from our outside environment"

Nature provides many of the things a child needs to learn. We provide a rich outside garden

"Boys and girls learn differently"

While offering equal opportunities to learn, we celebrate the learning differences and provide many physical opportunities

"There is more to literacy than ABC more to Math than 123"

We ask our educators to introduce drama, song, rhyme and rhythm, percussion movement and story all this will encourage a child to love literature

"There is a different key for every child turn that key and unlock the individual"

All children are unique and have their own interests

"For the Children with special needs in education we adapt"

We adapt and work closely with parents. We use many Montessori methods. We introduce fun extra speech and language groups, music groups and we have a play therapy specialist
