Pre Montessori/Montessori

At Butterflies Crèche, we employ the Montessori system of education for young children, which is designed to foster the natural interests and activities of each child. In addition, we embrace an emergent curriculum approach, allowing for flexibility and adaptability in our daily routines. This approach encourages both child and adult-initiated activities, ensuring a well-rounded and enriching educational experience. Rest assured, our programs are covered by ECCE, providing your child with a nurturing and stimulating environment to grow and thrive.

The ECCE (Early Childhood Care and Education) programme offers a valuable opportunity for all children within the eligible age range to embark on their first formal experience of early learning before starting primary school. This comprehensive programme provides three hours of engaging educational activities per day, five days a week, for a duration of 38 weeks per year. The ECCE programme year begins in September and concludes in June. At Butterflies Crèche, we are proud to participate in the ECCE programme, ensuring that your child receives a solid foundation for their educational journey in a nurturing and supportive environment.
