Parents

A Great Choice

We realise there are many child care centres to choose from and we know that choosing the right one can be a painstaking decision for all parents. Therefore, we invite you to discover what so many have found to be true. You can rely upon Millennium First Steps Nursery staff for love, understanding, professionalism and high standards.

Thank you so much for the care and attention you have given Isabelle in the last three years. She has been so happy at nursery and we are very sad it is time to move on. Wishing you every success.

Breakfast is provided for children attending 5 full days between 7.30 am and 8.30 am. All children attending full days and morning sessions are provided with mid-morning snack and a hot cooked lunch.

What Age?

Although the entrance age varies in individual nursery schools, a child can usually enter a Montessori classroom between the age of two and a half and four years of age, depending on when they can be happy and comfortable in a classroom. At Millennium First Steps Nursery the entrance age is 3 months.

The Montessori Ethos is practiced throughout the nursery; this is evident from the calm atmosphere and positive interaction of children and staff. Children’s independence is encouraged from an early age.

They will begin with simple self-help skills and exercises based on activities which all children enjoy. The equipment which they use at age 3 and 4 will help develop their concentration, coordination and working habits necessary for the more advanced exercises they will perform at age 5 and 6.

It is this unique cycle of learning, designed to take advantage of a child’s sensitive years between the ages of three and six, which will help them absorb information from an enriched environment in later years.
