Our building and outdoor areas were designed after a lengthy research process, with Rudolf Steiner principles in mind (although our teaching philosophies incorporate aspects of Montessori and other teaching practices as well – see Our Programme section). Timber and other natural materials and furnishings have been used throughout the building.
The combination of warm and earthy colours creates a cosy, home-like atmosphere, making the children in our centre feel secure and comfortable. Our home-like environment means that children do not eat, sleep, learn and play all in the same room: we have separate sleep rooms for all ages of children, a dining room, art annex and multi-purpose room for physical games, drama and dance. Under floor heating is installed throughout the building to ensure a comfortable, healthy temperature at all times.
