In the colder months, we offer hot chocolate while we share our findings, read a book together or sing songs!
There are always healthy snack options, milk and mineral water available to keep our little people on the go but be sure they will be ready for supper and a good night sleep after a busy day!
We would highly recommend this for all children to participate. We believe not only does it increase the child’s knowledge and understanding of the world around them, it also increases their confidence and self-esteem. Furthermore, it also sows the seed of introducing active and meaningful hobby at a young age.
In a world of fast pace and technology comes an opportunity to allow the child to slow down and appreciate the beautiful and fascinating world around them. We find the forestry school creates a peaceful and enjoyable experience and we hope that this has everlasting effects for our children as they move on from Bright Bambini Montessori.
Our forestry school is also open as an afterschool club up to the age of 8 years, allowing a wonderful mixture for the children to help each other and a sense of a creative, caring community.
All our forestry Montessorians will have a free all in one wet suit to wear to help protect their clothes from getting wet and muddy.
They will need wellies, hats, gloves and spare clothes.
Our Yoga trained specialist teacher Ingrid Rudelhoff leads the yoga classes aimed at rebalancing the child’s body, mind and inner self.
Yoga is known to be beneficial to children in many ways. As children encounter emotional, social, and physical challenges or conflicts, a dedicated and intentional yoga practice that includes breathing techniques, behavioral guidelines, and physical postures can be incredibly valuable for them.
Some parents feel that the practice might have a religious association due to its origin and traditional methods practiced. To dispel this notion and avoid any religious or cultural messages, our yoga teacher focuses on the benefits of the exercises and uses generic terms, instead of the Sanskrit names, for the poses, renaming them cat, bridge, table, tree, downward-facing dog, volcano, and so forth. Yoga’s rising popularity can be attributed to its basic stretching advantages and improved body awareness, with the added component of a mind-body connection.
We create a lovely calming environment for our children with comfortable yoga mats and a choice of organic essential oils to diffuse during the session.
Parents are welcome to speak to our yoga teacher for further personal advice and benefits.
French & Arabic Classes
BBM offer language sessions where the child has an opportunity to learn a language of the parents’ choice. The classes are prepared at the child’s level and interest using singing, books and other interactive methods to engage out little peoples minds.
Each child’s development stage is recorded for parental observation and to help teacher plan next sessions.
We advise that children are 3 years old for language lessons.
There has been much research to show that early reading has positive and long lasting educational benefits.
Every child is offered to loan a book from our special loan trolley for free! The book is logged out and is returned the following week.
The book loan not only encourages reading, it also indirectly teaches the child responsibility of returning borrowed items.
The library loan is a fantastic way to help parents to offer a variety of books without costing anything!
All we ask is that the books are taken care off and we hope you enjoy the special time with your child.
