We are a friendly & caring Montessori nursery school in purpose-converted period farm buildings in the unspoilt 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 peace,
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.
