What we do

About Our Nursery School

Burgh Wood Montessori Nursery School’s mission is to provide quality education in an environment  which fosters a child’s love and learning and a respect for self, others, the community and the world. We are commited to providing a nurturing and secure environment which promotes the development of each child physically, emotionally, socially, as well as academically.

At Burgh Wood we offer sessional care and education from the age of 2-5 years. We follow the Montessori Ethos with child-led activities and Montessori Materials to stimulate through sensory learning. With a combination of free-flow play and structured activities this develops the child’s self-esteem and increases their ability to problem solve so that they acquire confidence and a joy of learning. We also  focus on preparing children to transition from nursery to Primary School working closely in partership with Primary School teachers. 

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in the Prime and Specific Areas to provide a rounded education fostering social, physical, creative and academic skills in a supportive environment. Each child has a Key Worker assigned to them who through observation and reflection encourages each to attain their full potential.

Our children are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of indoor and outdoor activities. We have regular visits from ‘Boogie Beats’ and ‘Little Kickers’ providing extracurricular fun activities for the children to enjoy.

We enjoy weekly visits with our friends at Banstead Manor Care Home where the children are encouraged to participate in a variety of activities. 

We also provide weekly Forest School sessions for children from 3 years to experience new challenges in an outdoor environment with Forest School trained staff. 

A MESSAGE

From Our Principal

“At Burgh Wood Montessori Nursery School, we understand that children learn more in their early years than they will at any other times in their lives. It is our aim, therefore, to provide the children with access to a variety of experiences, opportunities and stimulating environments to help them succeed in their learning. We encourage the children to be independent and to respect others and the environment around them.

Choosing a Nursery School for your child is not an easy task. My Team are first and foremost parents themselves and are an experienced and dedicated team who understand the value and importance of early years education. We work in partnership with families to help provide your child with the foundations to become confident, self-assured and eager to learn.

We hope you will enjoy looking at our website and look forward to welcoming you to The Burgh Wood Montessori Family.”

“We’ve been really impressed with everything we’ve seen so far. The girls have both settled in really well, the staff are friendly, kind and warm and the management is organised and very communicative with parents which is great. The school trip was a huge hit and the plans to continue to develop the curriculum and the nursery school offering are very encouraging.”
