Our room outside “the decking” is in constant use throughout the day for our children to climb, slide, ride a bike, plant and feed the birds. Our mud kitchen inspires imaginative play, sand and water provide endless exploration, activities are child centred and in keeping with our Montessori philosophy.
The child has a different relation to his environment from ours… the child absorbs it. The things he sees are not just remembered; they form part of his soul. He incarnates in himself all in the world about him that his eyes see and his ears hear.”Maria Montessori, in The Absorbent Mind
