Childcare Programmes at Brighton Montessori

Years of research have shown that young children are very tactile and visual learners. Designed to suit every child, our curriculum is shaped to stimulate and engage children with materials that reiterate and reinforce concepts. With Brighton’s low child-to-teacher ratio, each child receives personalised attention and guidance to ensure that they are progressing to meet their learning goals.
