MEAB Accredited Montessori

Welcome To Andrea's Montessori

First home-based childcare to receive MEAB accreditation.

Andrea’s Montessori offers a ‘home from home’, loving, caring and educational environment for children aged 10 months - 4 years. At Andrea’s Montessori we strongly believe in following the ‘unique child’ and guiding the child towards confidence and independence within the environment. The education at our setting is based on the Montessori philosophy and pedagogy.

Come and visit our unique MEAB accredited and Ofsted "outstanding" setting at Andrea’s Montessori!

Our Montessori environment offers:

o Continuity of care and education for children under 4 years of age.
o Due to the small vertical group in our home environment the children receive lots of one to one attention throughout the day.
o High adult: child ratio.
o Outings two days per a week (Museums, local Library, local park and playground, Polka Theatre)
o Fresh home cooked meals.
o Spacious outdoor facility / large garden that encourages recycling, planting, taking care of our environment, including keeping 3 hens.
o We read stories and sing songs on a daily basis.
o Children are free to choose activities/ Child-centred approach/ Children develop at their own pace/ High quality Montessori materials laid out on shelves on children's height level to encourage free choice.

"The setting provides a highly inspirational learing enviroment for all children." (Ofsted, August 2011)
