Parent and Toddler Sessions at Hornsey Rise

Montessori Parent and Toddler sessions are being offered at our Hornsey Rise Children’s House. These 1 hour sessions are held weekly on Wednesdays from 14:00 to 15:00 during term time.

The Hornsey Rise site has a dedicated environment for the 2 year olds as a part of the Children’s House, and some 2 year olds have joined the morning session there as an introductory experience before full entry to the Children’s House.


The Parent and Toddler afternoon sessions are a perfect opportunity for children to experience what our environment for the 2 year olds is like, and for parents to understand how to support their child’s developmental needs at home.

During the session, children are offered small group activities for singing, language games, poems and stories. We will have various purposeful activities, which offer children opportunities to develop fine and gross motor skills, hand-eye coordination, language (vocabulary building) as well as social skills.

While children are engaged with the activities, parents may choose to sit aside and watch or join in. Our 0-3 trained staff member will be available to discuss any parenting challenges at home.

Children must be independent walkers to join this group.

Fee per session is £7, to be paid half-termly in advance.
