Meet the team

Next to you, your child’s teachers play the strongest role in fostering an early interest and enthusiasm for learning. There are currently nine members of staff at Little People’s Montessori Nursery who all hold recognised qualifications in early year’s education and are trained in the Montessori approach. Staff are highly effective in ensuring that all children feel fully accepted, and highly valued members of the nursery community. All children are assigned a key teacher whom they can build a safe and caring relationship with. However all staff with gradually build a relationship with each child. Furthermore a co-key teacher system is fully embedded allowing for support to be given to both parents and child when a key teacher is absent through illness or holiday.
