Kindergarten Room

Welcome to our Kindergarten

Here is our room which caters for children aged 2.5-3.5. In this room you will find resources and activities which promote independence. Using Montessori inspired resources your child will be able to develop skills important for life.

Like other rooms within the nursery, the Kindergarten room promotes child-led learning. Here we follow the interests of the child and extend their learning through all types of play including: Messy, group, independent, outdoor and problem solving.

Throughout the year we enjoy planning trips outside of the nursery which include visiting local parks, beaches, libraries and theatres. We tie these trips in with our forest school, but also allow every child the opportunity to attend trips.

We also begin to prepare children for the Pre-school room by encouraging the children to help prepare their own snack using child-safe knives, and using china plates and glasses. Throughout the day you may see your child enjoy participating in group yoga sessions, learning about their ‘book of the month’ and celebrating an array of cultural activities.

Meet the Kindergarten Team

We try to foster a homely, caring and happy environment with varied resources to accommodate all learning styles and personalities.

Although we do have a daily routine, we use the individual routines of the children to inform how our day will flow and to make sure all of the children can partake in all the experiences and access all the activities we have provided.

I also wanted to say thank you for the visit on Monday, it was so lovely to see how well A has settled already and especially the bond and trust she has already built with the staff. the team were in their element and so natural with the children, encouraging them to join in and building their confidence. The team are brilliant and I was very impressed with their natural passion and enthusiasm with the children. It was lovely to see them bring A out of her shell and see her smiling with the team, it honestly made me so happy. - March 2022

“Ambourne House Team has been fantastic since my son joined last October, we always felt part of the family. The setting is really good, especially the outdoor space, which stands out in relation to other settings that he attended. But I have to say that the Montessori approach was really key when we decided to enroll him. He developed so much autonomy and self-esteem since he joined but also continued to be very social and in a very short period of time built great relationship both with staff and other children.”

we moved our Daughter (to Ambourne) a few months ago...and we are so pleased... She has come leaps and bounds since moving and the difference in her behaviour and general attitude is amazing. June 2022
