“My name is Carole Anne Benson and I am the co-owner of the Tudor House Montessori Group. The group was formed over 20 years ago and I am so proud of all the settings in our group. I would like to thank you for your interest in my nurseries and invite you to telephone us for a visit. All six nurseries are small caring environments where the children can grow and flourish under the care of my qualified professional team of nursery practitioners. Many of my team members have been with me since I set up my first nursery.
We follow the philosophy of Maria Montessori concentrating in developing in children a lifelong love of learning. Montessori teaching encourages children to become able, confident and independent learners in harmony with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) (DfE2017). Our logo at all our nurseries is “Love grows here” which is evident when you visit us and we work towards excellence in every aspect of nursery life.
Carole-Anne Benson Owner and Registered person of the Tudor house group.
The nurseries are routinely inspected by Ofsted, five have been judged as being “Overall Outstanding” and one as “Good” which we are extremely proud of. (Please read our nursery Ofsted reports on our website home page). We continuously look for ways to further improve our care and learning environments through training courses and following current best early years practice.
The care of your children is paramount at all times within the Tudor House Montessori Group. “Every Child Matters” to us and children are supported by highly qualified, experienced and caring teams. In our baby seedlings room we provide lots of cuddles, reassurance and individual attention. We have cosy cot rooms where our babies sleep. Outside play time is very important to our babies and we have all weather surfaces for their play.
Key workers track and plan through the children’s interests their next stages of development.
The food served at our day nurseries is freshly prepared and nutritious. The menus are analysed by an expert dietitian ensuring your child receives a well-balanced diet to promote healthy growth and development.
We have become a “Rights Respecting Nursery” and are working towards our award to further become more inclusive embracing UNICEF Rights of the Child. All my team members have a DBS police check as part of our Safeguarding requirements of the Statutory Framework for the EYFS. The Tudor House Montessori Group promotes fundamental British values of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, mutual respect and tolerance for those with different faiths and beliefs. We treat each child as an individual following their learning styles, interests, strengths, needs making our environments stimulating and welcoming to all.
We have strong relationships with our parents and carers sharing milestones of their children’s time with us, through Tapestry our online learning journals or face to face. Many families continue to send their youngest children to us long after their older siblings have left for big school. We have an open door policy where parent’s views are welcome through our comments boxes, questionnaire, face to face, by phone or email. Parents are welcome to read our nursery policies which detail our procedures concerning first aid, safeguarding, the key person, managing feelings and behaviour.
My vision for the nurseries is to provide a home from home environment which is full of laughter and learning. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our nursery”.
