• Childcare in Istead Rise

    A friendly place for your Wobblers & Toddlers to grow and learn
  • Istead Rise is a village 3 miles (5 km) south of Gravesend in Kent, England. It is in the borough of Gravesham and has a population of 3,437 (2011 census).

    Montessori is a specific teaching method founded by the first female doctor in Italy over 100 years ago, it is renowned throughout the world. The environment requires specific preparation and the teacher must be trained to observe and understand the aims of the classroom and the needs of the children. By definition, the Montessori Philosophy we use in ISTEAD RISE teaches a progressive curriculum that uses child-directed learning, backed by observation and scientific research, as its core value. Instead of being traditionally taught, children are encouraged to make their own choices in the classroom, with a teacher to guide them along the way.

    In England, ISTEAD RISE CHILDCARE is inspected and regulated by OFSTED (previously this was administered by Local Authority Social Services). CHILDCARE for children under five is split into CHILDCARE on Domestic Premises which is Childminding and Daycare.

    A CHILDCARE (also CHILDCARE school, pre-primary school, kindergarten outside the US and UK) is an educational establishment or learning space offering early childhood education to children between the ages of two and five, prior to the commencement of compulsory education at primary school.

    CHILDCAREs in England, ISTEAD RISE follow the Early Learning Goals, set by the Early Years Foundation Stage, for education produced by the Department for Children, Schools and Families which carries on into their first year of school at the age of four and or five. This year of school is usually called Reception. The Early Learning Goals cover the main areas of education without being subject driven. These areas include;

    • Personal, social and emotional development (prime area)
    • Communication and Language (prime area)
    • Physical education (prime area)
    • Literacy (specific area)
    • Mathematics (specific area)
    • Understanding the World (specific area)
