The preschool is in a former church which was converted into a preschool. We installed low level child toilets and washbasins to promote self reliance and self confidence. Low level shelves are used to present activities so your child can select activities of their choice, by themselves.

There is a large outdoor play area with a mud kitchen, a growing area and an astro turf play area.


Children can start on their second birthday.

We have places for immediate start

Your child will be assigned a Key Person who will help them to settle in, make friends and get the most from our extended Montessori curriculum, which encompasses the EYFS. After four weeks your child’s key person arranges a meeting at the preschool to discuss your child’s progress with settling in.
