The Children's Room

Based in Uplands, Swansea, The Children's Room is a privately run Montessori school; the first South Wales nursery school run according to the unique child-centred Montessori approach to early education.

Located in the peaceful environment of St James Gardens, The Children's Room has a higher teacher-to-child ratio than many other nurseries and can offer provision through the medium of Welsh. I have seen the success and joy of the Montessori method across the world and have worked in schools in London and the Far East, including working in a Montessori school in Singapore for two years.

Developed by Dr Maria Montessori, the Montessori educational approach places emphasis on allowing children to achieve their full potential by developing the whole child intellectually, socially, physically, emotionally, linguistically and spiritually. The aim at the nursery is to give every child the opportunity to do this.
