About Island Montessori
Island Montessori provides quality learning at both the Preschool and Primary level in a beautiful, spacious setting designed to nurture the individual potential of each child. The school offers the best learning experience for children whose families value the philosophy of encouraging independence, inquisitiveness and a love of active learning. The preschool programme is open to children aged 12 months–4 years and works with children using the very best Montessori practices blended with the UK Early Years Framework.
In this manner, the preschool provides a fantastic platform as students transition to Reception. All classes are underpinned by a belief that children should be active, and outdoor learning is blended into each day. The Primary programme follows the UK National
Curriculum and offers classes from Reception to Year 4, incorporating creative approaches to bring out the best in every child, while ensuring the highest learning standards are consistently delivered. Led by an outstanding team of highly qualified, engaged teachers, the school also incorporates the use of specialist subject and SEN teachers to support children of all abilities.
