Rainbows Montessori

Montessori  in the Beeches

We offer a high quality Early Years experience for your child based on the Montessori approach to Early Education.

We accept children from the age of 2 years and 9 months until they are ready to move to Reception Classes.

Rainbows is based in a light airy hall with direct access to a safe enclosed garden space, providing an ideal setting to explore and learn. Children are able develop according to the Montessori principles of confidence, self-esteem and an interest in people and the world around them.

Working with parents and families we place the child at the heart of what we do. Every child is an individual and we encourage them to follow their interests and strengths, as we support them to grow, flourish and reach their full potential. *
