Centre of Excellence

At Children's House Montessori we believe in the holistic development of each child. Although the Montessori approach provides the best educational start for children beginning their learning journey there will be occasions when they need additional specialist help. When this happens accessing expert help can be time consuming and confusing, especially if you unfamiliar with the issues and are encountering this world for the first time.

When that is the case the Centre of Excellence is there to give you easy access to additional expert advice from a range of professionals in an environment that is familiar to you and your child. As a part of our team the Centre's experts also support our teachers, ensuring that their recommendations are implemented in an effective manner that is seamlessly integrated into the nursery's development plan for your child.

These services can be commissioned on a one-off basis or as a series of sessions: the choice is yours. Assessments are conducted once per term. The specialist currently includes Paediatrician, Speech and Language, Play therapist, Occupational therapist.

If I can try out my ideas, experience what's around me, share what I find;
If I have plenty of time for my special pace, a nourishing space, things to transform;
If you'll be my patient friend, My trusted investigator, Partner in learning;
Then I will explore the world, discover my voice and tell you what I know in a hundred languages Pamela Houk
