Welcome to Superstart Childcare (Montessori)

We hope you can find everything you need. Superstart Childcare is focused on providing high-quality education in an environment where children are nurtured and supported with positive interactions and a programme that meets the child’s individual needs.

We focus on building strong relationships with all children and their families and ensure a fun, stimulating, challenging and safe environment where children are encouraged to explore, problem solve, build strong relationships, gain confidence and just have fun!

Guided by the teaching principles of Dr. Montessori, Superstart Childcare is a well-resourced and cared-for environment that recognises and responds to the individuality and uniqueness of each child.

Being a teacher IS the MOST REWARDING profession as you make such a difference in the life of a child. It is also a privilege to work with our Parents who come from so many different ethnic backgrounds, and support them as “first teachers”. It is a pleasure to provide this service to the community, we have evolved by listening to Parents and making changes wherever possible to meet their needs. I know our service is affordable and I am proud of what we have achieved, but we could not have done this without the support of Parents, Teachers and of course children.

I enjoy being with the children and watch them grow bit by bit every day. I believe the interaction between an adult and a child is very important. Children need to have someone then can trust to feel safe. It leads them to build their own confidence and to be a resilience adult for their coming future.

It has been years of wonderful teaching experiences and I hope there are many more years to come.

I chose Superstart for her early education because of Lyn. She is very much a ‘hands-on’ person. Even despite her busy schedule, she is still very much a part of the children’s lives. She will also spend time with children who need extra support and guidance. I have seen first-hand her ‘magic touch’ on all the children and that makes me want to help out in any way I can. I love working for someone I have a lot of respect for. I am very thankful for everything.
