Phoenix Montessori Nursery


"It has been an absolute joy bringing my child to the Phoenix Nursery. Staff are friendly, caring and supportive. They all have the educational and social development of each child in mind and strive to provide an elite service. My child absolutely loves going to nursery and has developed it what I feel is an accelerated pace- thank you."

"Phoenix has helped my daughter’s progress immensely. She’s comfortable there and enjoys her nursery days so much! The staff are great and I can go to work feeling sure that she’s safe and having fun."
Rachel- Amelie’s mum
"We are so happy with Angus' behaviour and development since he has been at the nursery. He has a really affectionate bond with his carers and loves all the outings, and activities. The children's committee is great and he has gained confidence from being included in decision making. The biggest issue is trying to get him to come home!"
Karin- Angus’s mum

Our Philosophy

We understand child philosophy!
At Phoenix Montessori Nursery School we aim to create a playful and learning environment that inspires children to learn through various activities and we provided the children with opportunities to develop holistically together with their peers.
We involve the children in the planning in our toddler and pre-school room, offering a wide level of education. During this process we emphasize on individuality, we look at how the child learns, interacts as part of a group and what the child enjoys.
We observe children's language and interaction throughout the day and we encourage children to be involved in talking and expressing themselves through open discussion at "group time" and "story time" and throughout the day.

Our Montessori philosophy highlights the importance of children learning new skills, Montessori methods are used to provide practitioners and parents with an understanding that children learns from a positive reflection of the environment and the world around them.
It is helpful to reflect on how the favorable environment promotes children's sense of well being, because it will be in this area that we will be able to witness children's self-fulfillment as evidence in self-control and feeling of self-worth.
The class rooms are orderly organized, the freedom to move freely and select activities, the readiness of the activities for use all contribute to the child's growing sense of well-being as they come to learn how the class room works and what is expected of them.

Our work cycle contributes further towards children's ability to engage with activities according to their individual rhythms and interests and promotes children's growing ability to make decisions and take responsibilities for their own actions. Our daily routines inherent through a work-cycle which promotes the child's sense of well-being this is because they give children the opportunities to control their environment.
Children experience an environment where their health is promoted, their emotional well-being is nurtured, they are kept safe from harm and the curriculum further links well-being with principles of empowerment in the following words: "Children develop an enhanced sense of self worth, identity, confidence and enjoyment as they reach the goals of well-being, in a responsive, stable, safe environment which supports the development of self control and self esteem." These definitions bring us closer to the principles of the Montessori approach of "following the child" and links to Montessori closely with the EYFS principles of the "unique child".

Culture is an integral part of our environment, it is reflected in everything that we do. Our environment is surrounded by cultural diversity and it is our aim to create a learning environment that reflects all the cultures that surround us. We try to celebrate several festivals, according to the relevant customs. Parents are encouraged to support us in this area, providing positive reflections of the different diversity and community we live in.

At Phoenix nursery we emphasize the need for innovation and inspiration within the environment. Staff members record our daily activities on the basis of what has been successful, if something we have prepared for the children fails to interest them we try to find a different way of approaching the subject.
We follow child initiated activities, if for example the child wishes to change our plan we adapt them accordingly.
