Pre School

At Monkey Puzzle Cambridge Preschool we ensure that our setting meets the learning and development requirements outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as well as incorporating certain aspects of the Montessori pedagogy. Children are offered a broad and well-rounded education.

Our team is made up of well experienced members of staff including an Early Years Teacher who has extensive knowledge and experience in leading early years teams as well as the implementation and linking of the Montessori teaching methods into the EYFS. We know in order to offer the best learning experiences and outcomes to our children, we must draw upon the principles of some of the brilliant pedagogies available to us. For example the Elizabeth Jarman principles on communication friendly spaces which you will find dotted around our nursery and preschool.
