Education is not something which the teacher does. It is a natural process which develops spontaneously.

dr Maria Montessori

To assist a child we must provide him with an environment, which will enable him to develop freely.

dr Maria Montessori

We believe that the early years set the pattern of a child's general development and this is why Little Daisy's Childminding aims to make this very special time an enjoyable and pleasant experience.

As children learn through natural development we offer them a freedom of choice and sensitively direct their learning. Children are not forced to do anything, we simply direct them to do something which they find interesting and enjoyable.

We also encourage the children to socialise with their peers to help them develop as individuals and to find their own place in the community.

Every child is encouraged to care for and respect others as well as the environment they are using. Children have a little garden at their disposal where they can not only play but also grow plants and learn responsibility.

Through using carefully thought out Montessori materials and activities, the children can gain experiences which will provide them with the keys to the world around them. The child is also aided in reaching his/her full potential in all areas of the curriculum, acquiring the skills needed in the world today.

Our goals are:

  1. to provide an attractive, caring and homely environment for your child

  2. to teach the children tolerance, respect and understanding of the feelings and needs of others

  3. to encourage independence and help the child grow in self-confidence

  4. to use the Montessori method to encourage active learning at children's own pace

  5. to teach children to contribute in a safe environment

  6. to follow the Early to follow the Early Years Foundation Stage

  7. to enable all children achive the maximum possible for their ability
