2-to-3 year-olds at the West End Montessori Pre-School
Our focus in the Raindrops is to prepare each child for the successful transition from their home to the nursery environment.
For many children it will be the first move away from their families into a small group setting where we will continue to nurture this development through practical life activities and skills so the very best is made of this critical period in a child’s development.
The room is simply laid out with defined areas for practical life and sensorial activities.
There are plenty of opportunities to develop themselves creatively and intellectually as the children are involved in everything from making musical instruments to bathing our baby to getting up close to nature.
Everything possible is prepared by our experienced team and inspired by the children themselves.
