Welcome to Foxglove Montessori Nurseries in Stowmarket

 

Foxglove Montessori is an independent nursery school established for over 20 years in the heart of Stowmarket. We have two nurseries both providing a warm and friendly learning setting.

 

Foxglove Violet Hill was opened in September 2018.  It provides a Montessori nursery with a fantastic outdoor area.  

The Montessori Method is an approach to education that enables children to develop in a natural way, by being given the best possible conditions to promote social, emotional, physical and intellectual development.   Our aim is to enable the child to achieve his/her full potential.

What are we doing this week?

We are using a planning system called 'In the moment planning' this term.  This involves our teachers observing the children, joining in with their play and extending their learning whenever we see a teachable moment.  Each week different children will be chosen as focus children, and teachers will particularly watch for teachable moments with these children.

Ideas to try at home

At Foxglove Nurseries, we believe strongly that parents are the joint educators with us.  In support of this belief, we are now providing you with some simple ideas for you to try at home with your child.   We welcome your comments regarding these ideas and for any new ideas too!

A visit from the firefighters

 

We had a visit from the firefighters from Stowmarket fire station.  The children were able to squirt the fire hose and pretend to drive the fire engine.  A huge thank you to the fire fighters who answered all our questions and taught us all about what to do if there was a fire at home.
