Our aim is to encourage the development of your child in a happy, relaxed and warm environment. We aim to ease the initial transition from home to nursery and then to primary school by graduallychallenging your child's abilities, through stimulating play. We have a vibrant indoor play space that was designed by us with young children in mind and a large, walled garden, which we use every day. All our activities are based around a child's age and stage of development and their current interests.

Maria Montessori developed her teaching method in Italy, 100 years ago. Since then the Montessori movement has reached out around the world, and today this child centred, holistic approach, is assuccessful and popular as ever. Within the Montessori system children learn by interaction with their environment, through the use of their hands and their senses. They choose from a wide range of activities, within an environment carefully structured and prepared by the teachers.
