Montessori family playgroups are an opportunity for children and their parents/caregivers to learn together in a Montessori prepared environment.
No need to book to visit our playgroup but if you want to be updated about Montessori and what I offer locally to families, please sign up to my newsletter.
Parents and children interact alongside a Montessori trained guide who uses the environment to facilitate the interaction.
The prepared environment allows the child to have a wide range of social and physical experiences.
Within the environment, and with the support of his caregivers, the child will become more confident and independent.
In the “Montessori family” class, you will be presented to Montessori material and carefully chosen toys that allow your child to be an active and independent learner.
We will take time to observe your child, understand his/her needs and learn how to interact with him when he plays. The environment will nurture your child’s need of independence, his sensibility to order, movement and language.
The session includes introduction to process art activities and sensory activities. Here, the process is important, not the end result. We don’t do a piece of art, we enjoy a sensorial experience.
We encourage the children to prepare their own snack, such as cutting fruits, spreading butter on crackers and pouring their own drink.
Finally, we end the group with songs, finger play and storytelling.
During the class, the parent will be a careful observer of his child.
