Great Beginnings Montessori Nursery School in Marylebone, London

Language

The very young baby is always drawn to the sound of the human voice from the beginnings of life. The sensitivity for language is very powerful in the child until around 6 years of age. Therefore, at Great Beginnings we do many activities to help the child increase their vocabulary and develop their conversational skills during this key period.

The shapes and sounds of the letters of the alphabet are taught with the aid of letters made out of sandpaper from around the age of 3 ½ years. Writing and reading follow on as a natural progression and are taught in a fun and enjoyable way.
