Our learning environment

At Lemon Tree and St Matthew’s Montessori we aim to provide a safe, happy and stimulating environment where your child can learn through encouragement, sensitivity to others and mutual respect. Your child’s skills will be developed through exploring and working with the Montessori materials and other carefully selected materials in conjunction with the Early Learning goals.

Our schools offer a specially tailored curriculum, individual care and attention, fun and friendship with children and other adults and opportunities for you and your family to be directly involved in the progress of your child’s development. As a school, we direct our efforts to meet the following goals for all of our pupils:

  • The development of each individual child according to the child’s needs and potential
  • The attainment of self discipline
  • The growth of independence and initiative
  • A thirst for knowledge and a love of work
  • Spontaneous creativity
  • The development of skills and knowledge linked to the child’s own effort and interest
  • The development of ethical behaviour based on moral and spiritual values
  • The ability to express thoughts and feelings
  • An understanding of the environment and a sense of the contribution of all living things to each other.
