Nursery bookings are now open for September

WITH an exciting learning outdoor experience for your child, the highly praised Denning Montessori Nursery and Forest School

WITH an exciting learning outdoor experience for your child, the highly praised Denning Montessori Nursery and Forest School is now taking bookings for the next academic year starting in September.

Run by principal Jenny Blain, Denning was the first accredited Montessori school in Henley. For 25 years “Miss Jenny” and her team have been encouraging and nurturing young minds, creating a haven, in which to learn and grow.

In this exceptional setting at Fawley village hall, surrounded by beautiful countryside, children blossom, each being highly valued as individuals.

Pupils here participate in varied activities such as dance and Mandarin lessons, as well as taking part in “Forest School”, where they are encouraged to engage with the natural world around them.

Outings to orchards and visitors to the school such as ponies, community police and the mobile library are just a few examples of the exciting, stimulating experience offered to Denning children.

Denning has consistently been assessed by the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board scheme for the London area, which confirms that there is a level of high quality Montessori practice in all Early Years Foundation Stage and Montessori curriculum areas for the two- to four-year-olds.

Children have an exceptional grounding before heading to a wide selection of schools in the area. They are all well prepared for the next transition to big school.

Parents at the school have praised the work of the staff and testified to the quality of the environment and education offered.

Serena White, who has a son at the school, says: “Denning truly is a wonderful place — the children are given a solid foundation in a warm and welcoming setting where they build confidence and form happy relationships. My son has thrived since being at Denning, and not a day goes by when I am not impressed with his learning, and the level of care given to him at this very special school.”

Denning offers early bird sessions from 8.30am and optional sessions with lunch club or all day until 4pm — including free entitlement for three- and four-year-olds.

Consider becoming part of the warm Denning community, which is great for parents too — with picnics, drinks and meet-ups in the holidays organised.
