About Tigglets Montessori

A positive, enjoyable experience of early education


At Tigglets Montessori we consider ourselves to be a link between home and later school life, by ensuring that each child has a positive and enjoyable experience of early education.


We will endeavour to provide your child with quality care and education, in a safe, secure and stimulating environment. A high staff-to-child ratio ensures that each child will be respected and treated as an individual according to his/her own needs.


However, matters of unacceptable behaviour will be dealt with kindly but firmly, in keeping with the Montessori philosophy of developing self-discipline and self-esteem. Should the behaviour persist, we will discuss matters with the child's parents/guardians as appropriate. Positive behaviour will be consistently encouraged.
