Parent and Child Classes


Montessori-based class for toddlers (walking to 2 yrs)

Parenting a toddler is a whole new kettle of fish. Once you’ve gotten through the baby years, you’ll often find yourself immersed in a sea of “NO MUMMY!”, tantrums and inconsolable tears (and sometimes the kids cry too!).

Nestlings is designed to be a beautifully calm Montessori-style environment where toddlers can freely explore and, basically, live their best lives. We also want to empower parents with the knowledge and tools to know that they are connecting with their child in the best way they can.

It can feel confusing and overwhelming when we don’t know what to do with those big emotions our toddlers communicate. Society tells us to punish and bribe, but in our hearts we know that we really don’t want to be that kind of parent.

Emma creates a welcoming and safe environment for you to be around like-minded parents, chat about parenting styles and give you play ideas and ways to deepen that bond with your child, as well as promoting independence and boosting cognitive development.

Wednesdays in term time, 11:45am-12:45pm
