Mission Statement 

At PlayDays Montessori Playschool we are committed to providing excellent standards of care for the holistic development of your child. Our mission is to ensure that each child will reach their fullest individual potential. We strive to provide a happy, safe, secure and caring environment for your child. 


We at play days aim to prepare your child for becoming an independant and resourceful person in their own right. We will work respectfully alongside your child encouraging them to fulfill tasks they set out for themselves as all children are encouraged to choose their work and develop at their own pace; thus achieving a sense of self confidence and having good self esteem, self worth and so leading to self discipline.
We will show respect between staff, children, parents, guardians, carers, and visitors. Children will learn and be able to recognize the diversity of cultural backgrounds.
The child’s rights, abilities, needs and interests will be supported.
Children will be encouraged to learn and be happy with a fun filled curriculum. Positive experiences will encourage the children further in their development, and are the cornerstone to the child’s wellbeing.
