Expecting a spike in numbers
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.”
