Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

GO­ING THE WHOLE HEDGE­HOG: Chal­font St Peter Montes­sori, in Sandy Rise. is open­ing its new ‘Lit­tle Hedge­hogs’ class­room in Septem­ber A VIL­LAGE nurs­ery is open­ing a new class­room for 12 more chil­dren in Septem­ber.

The new class­room at Chal­font St Peter Montes­sori is aimed at two-year-olds and will op­er­ate along­side the ex­ist­ing Montes­sori school in Sandy Rise.

Sit­u­ated di­rectly next to the main school, it will op­er­ate out of Tithe Barn Youth Cen­tre, Mon­day to Fri­day, 9am to 12pm.

Par­ents and chil­dren join­ing next term were treated to a spe­cial open af­ter­noon on Satur­day, May 10, where the new class­room was show­cased.

Nurs­ery prin­ci­pal, Jacqueline McCarthy, said: “We are very ex­cited about Lit­tle Hedge­hogs, which recog­nises that a child who has just turned two has very dif­fer­ent de­vel­op­men­tal needs to one that is two and a half or older.

“We will in­te­grate our main school with the new class­room as much as pos­si­ble, and all chil­dren will share play­time in the court, ten­nis lessons, whole school in­door play and other group ac­tiv­i­ties, en­sur­ing that the tran­si­tion to our main school in year 2 goes as smoothly as pos­si­ble for our new chil­dren.”
