How We Teach

We believe that a combination of free and structured play, an interactive learning environment and an abundance of love, care and attention provide the most sold foundations for children in the early years.

Our international team of educators from a comprehensive pedagogy at Kids United. We embrace teaching philosophies from around the world, such as Maria Montessori, Reggio Emilia and the Theory of Multiple Intelligences. The result is a play-based learning experience that combines child and teacher-led activities with free and structured play. The programme is customised to the developmental ability of each

Green Group

The first stage in a child's journey at Kids United is the Green Group. This room is designed to benefit children under 3 years and is flexible to meet each child's individual needs. We focus on your child’s personal, social and emotional development. Ensuring secure attachments with their key person and peers is fundamental to a child's ability to thrive within nursery life. Our highly skilled practitioners provide children with a range of age-appropriate activities to challenge their development, with particular focus on language and physical development. The children enjoy free and guided play, art, music and messy play. Practitioners will work closely with parents and carers to follow nap and food schedules and ensure a smooth transition from home to nursery.
