Twinkle Stars Montessori is a private and independent Montessori nursery for 2 to 5 years old. The Nursery was founded on the philosophy and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori Method of education and is in line with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS). We were established in 2013 and the Nursery is now under new management. Our experienced Montessori staff aim to provide quality care in a safe and fun, yet structured setting. The children receive a high quality of care and attention and they will be given the opportunity to learn through the unique, specially designed Montessori apparatus. The teachers will provide a learning plan for your child along with set goals for them to achieve.
Twinkle Stars Montessori is open five days a week during term time. Four additional activity weeks during half term may also be available in addition to the 38 weeks (this is subject to 6 children or more enrolling for the half term holiday club). Our opening hours are from 8:00am to 3:00pm.
The children have the freedom to walk between two classrooms, exploring the different areas, such as literacy, mathematics, sensorial, knowledge and understanding of the world, creative area, home corner/role playing and activities of everyday living. Twinkle Stars has adopted the Japanese shoe etiquette principle whereby all outdoor shoes are removed before entering the nursery and home slippers and clean shoes are worn indoors.
Once in the classroom, circle time and registration takes place and the children have the freedom to explore the Montessori material and to work with an activity of their choice; learning through play, exploration, trial and error and discovery rather than by instruction. We have a lovely garden and play area with different outdoor activities including tricycles, balls, gardening, group play, water/sand play and lots of physical activities. Children will play in the garden everyday!
