Arcadia is a synonym for heaven. Children come and don’t want to leave because of all the love and beauty that surrounds them. Arcadia Montessori School offers a warm and friendly learning environment in which your child can grow and develop confidently. Each child is encouraged to achieve their full potential through the spectrum of activities that they will be guided through. An individual plan is made for each child, which includes their personal interests and stage of development. A group plan is also prepared to help each individual child to adapt to becoming one of a larger group through a variety of activities.
Our directresses (teachers) are simply the best! They are warm and loving and bring out the gold in all the children. They nurture, encourage and build up the children’s sense of self-esteem and independence. They nurture, encourage and build up the children’s sense of self-esteem and independence, leaving them ready to take on the world. They also love to have fun with the children. Children learn through play!

At Arcadia we believe that the foundation of a good education fosters a love of learning and the ability to adapt to change. Our broad-based curriculum encompasses the very best of the British Early Years Foundation Stage as well as the highly successful Montessori Programme. The result is a rigorous yet innovative hybrid curriculum that goes beyond traditional programmes of education. Our course of study is an integrated thematic approach that ties the separate disciplines of both curricula together.
