Dear Ms Byrne,
I just want to write to thank you very much for the time and effort you spent to personally show me around on my visit to the Montessori.
I was a little lost for words at the time, but the nursery is simply beyond outstanding in every respect. There was such a lovely balance of a relaxed and focussed atmosphere. Each child was doing something interesting, practical, individually appropriate, and exploring so many senses. I could see enormous thought and attention put into the surroundings, the dimensions of each space, how teachers relate to each student down to standard of vocabulary and the register of speech used, the sequencing and timings of activities. There was a wonderful balance of individual and group activities.
Your powers of persuasion on the children are nothing short of magical! The happy welcoming atmosphere really brings the best out of them. I was astonished to see the theory of constructive “learning by doing” actually being out in pratice, with every single child. Every teacher clearly had such an awareness of each student’s needs and development, and how each activity is contributing to their overall development.
Thank you again for your time, every day I think back on my visit with great joy and excitement, and I simply can not imagine a better nursery for our son.
With best wishes.
