Thank you for your interest in First Steps Montessori Prep School.
We are a unique Montessori School whose aim is to provide the ideal learning environment for the children using the Montessori philosophy.
We opened in August 1990 to provide day care for children aged 6 months to 5 years and offer them a wide range of pre-school activities. We have always pursued a policy of progressive improvement in the care and educational facilities we provide. We progressed to a Montessori Prep school in Sept. 1996.
The School is registered by Ofsted thus complying with the National Standards. These are the basic Regulations to which all private day nurseries must adhere. The policies and procedures which govern the way we operate at First Steps are contained in our Compliance Manual which is available for parents / carers to read. This makes good sense as it ensures all staff are working to the same standards.
The education that a child will receive at First Steps is nothing short of amazing. The children are learning and exploring in an environment that is not only conducive to learning, but encourages a love of learning that will last a lifetime no matter where the child goes. This is evident in the many testimonials we receive from parents.
We also have a questionnaire followed by parents’ evening every 6 months to ensure we are meeting the needs of the children and parents.
The baby room at First Steps is for babies aged 4 weeks to 30 months. The staff are dedicated to nurturing your infant in an atmosphere that is caring, pleasant and homely.
We have warm and caring staff to guide the children in a program that is geared towards the individual child’s developmental stage, using Montessori materials and principles.
Our Montessori classroom is divided into several areas: Practical Life, Sensorial, Listening and attention, Understanding, Speaking, Literacy, Mathematics, Expressive Arts & Design and more…
