West Chiltington Montessori Nursery School


Our curriculum follows the government’s Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum from birth to five years.

We base our philosophy on the practices of Montessori and Reggio Emilia. Activities are based on the needs and interests of each individual child with a balance of formal and informal learning opportunities and an emphasis on self expression and exploration through play.

Each day offers opportunities for free play and more structured activities, particularly as the children get older. There are group times for stories, singing and music and movement. Structured activities with specific learning intentions are offered morning and afternoon.

We are pleased to offer Optional sessions in Forest school where we join West Chiltington Community School.

Dance and music sessions are taught by visiting specialist teachers, are also on offer.
