Kia Mena Montessori Pre-School was established in September 1994. It is a privately run pre-school catering for children from 2 to 5 years.
We have been at our current premises within Beckenham Cricket Club since September 2001. The old cricket pavilion is in a lovely tranquil setting and has been refurbished to a high standard to cater for every child’s needs. We have a covered outside play area that we use every day in all weathers and also have access to a safe enclosed grassy area.
We use the Montessori method devised by Dr Maria Montessori alongside the Early Years Foundation Stage. Maria Montessori believed that young children should be physically, intellectually and socially allowed to grow naturally to develop their own individuality. She recognised that if the child is presented with the right activity at the right stage of development, they will absorb knowledge without any effort. The Montessori Material has been specially designed with this in mind and we incorporate this to enable us to bring out your child’s full potential. All Montessori teaching is done on a one-to-one basis.
