Our Ethos

Our beliefs

At Barley Lane Montessori Preschool and Afterschool Centre we follow the ethos of Dr. Maria Montessori alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage and believe in the freedom of self-development. We have a team of experienced staff who has created a supportive and caring environment for our boys and girls who learn through play and benefit from garden, indoor and outdoor activities.

We believe in freedom with responsibility which means taking ownership of their activities, respecting each other, their teachers, resources and environment.

We believe in encouraging children to tidy up after finishing their activity and return the resources/equipment to its correct place.

We believe in giving children time and space to finish their chosen activity and expect other children to respect their space as well.

We encourage children to be kind to one another.
