My name is Sarah Anderson; mother, wife, Montessori teacher and now the very proud owner of Hulse Hall Montessori School. For the past two and a half years I have driven past the beautiful Hulse Hall on my way to Bournemouth and the Montessori nursery I have been the deputy manager of.
I tentatively approached the Hulse Hall Committee in the December of last year and asked if they would consider myself using the hall for a mornings only, term time only nursery. I am thrilled that they not only agreed, but also that they are so very supportive of my exciting new school, I am very grateful for the opportunity to use your hall, it will always be available for the village to use. Myself and the children within it will endeavour to care for it when we spend time there.
I teach from an educational system called Montessori. It was designed over 100 years ago by Dr Maria Montessori, a pioneering woman with a background in medicine, education and child development. She observed that children learn through movement and devised materials and activities for the child to use that would allow for spontaneous use and lead to greater concentration. Our indoor and outside environments are designed and fully prepared for the child to use freely. Maria Montessori wrote; “Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences within the environment.”
Hulse Hall is the perfect back drop for a Montessori school. We aim to provide a highly stimulating environment for children to learn and develop to their full potential. We believe that each child deserves to be nurtured to reach their best potential by offering them an enriching experience of learning and of life. I intend to use the magazine for my nursery newsletter. This will ensure that the families of the nursery will become part of the village and I hope that you will enjoy reading more about what we do. I also hope that you will begin to understand why Montessori is so important as a system of education. I will be attending the delicious brunches on 15th June and 20th July liar anyone who has any questions about Hulse Hall Montessori. Our website is www.hulsehallmontessori.co.uk and I can be contacted by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I look forward to hearing from you ……
