What is a Montessori Nursery?

Montessori is a method of education based around the Montessori theory of self-directed learning, independent exploration, and collaborative play. Within Montessori early learning environments, children are given a variety of choices in their learning, allowing them to explore and develop their knowledge of the world and develop to their full potential.

Busy Bees Montessori Approach

In our Busy Bees Montessori nurseries you’ll find beautiful spaces designed to nurture your child's creativity and independence. Within our Montessori nursery settings, every child is treated as an individual, encouraging them to explore, experiment, and learn at their own pace. To ensure your child is fully prepared for their next educational milestone, we blend the Montessori programme with elements from the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum for a well-rounded experience and to fully support the transition to the next key stage.

At Busy Bees, we pride ourselves on our people; their warmth and empathy create the most wonderful, loving and supportive environment where every child can thrive. We'd love to help give your child their best start in life. If you'd like to know more, book a visit to meet the team and view one of our stunning Montessori nursery locations.
