Learning with the Yorkshire Montessori Nursery Company
DR MARIA MONTESSORI
Dr Maria Montessori was one of the most important early years’ educators of the 20th century, an innovator of classroom practices and ideas which have influenced education profoundly worldwide. As a progressive Montessori provider, we use her original ideas and resources and bring in the relevance of the modern world, to create an enlightening, progressive learning environment both indoors and outdoors.
We take structure from the Montessori and EYFS areas of learning.
