We are a friendly & caring Montessori nursery school in newly purpose-converted farm buildings in the estate village of great Barrington, near Burford in the beautiful North Cotswolds.
Our aim is to create an environment for our children that is as safe and caring as home but that is also filled with fun & intelligent learning activities. We try to be so good, even mummies and daddies want to stay and play!
We have two bright, calm and ordered classrooms, a sunny forest-school style garden and work very hard to provide enjoyable & stimulating challenges that our little people might not otherwise have access to.
If you are looking for a real, proper school for little people with a nurturing family feel, please get in touch. We would love to show you around.

What is Montessori?
A visionary, child-focused educational method, developed
over 100 years ago. The method is based on
logically and sensitively introducing educational and social concepts to very
young children. It's major focus is on learning to concentrate and become
independent, happy life-long learners. Over the past 100 years, the method has
become globally accepted as significant to 'Early Years' best practice. Many
major educational ideas identified by Maria Montessori, the founder of the
method, have recently been verified by modern independent scientific research.
Montessori's particular interest was the role of education in the promotion of
a sentiment never more relevant than today. It is precisely this
aspect of her work that led to her being repeatedly nominated for
the Nobel Peace Prize.
