Whetstone Lilliput Montessori

This nursery has a purpose-built extension to a small group of shops close to the centre of the village which opened in early 2000. Despite its outward appearance it has a cosy, homely atmosphere inside where your children will feel safe and comfortable while they develop and grow.

The baby room for the under two's is a large hexagonal shaped room which is divided at low level to separate the toddlers and walkers from the crawlers. This means that your children have plenty of space to develop and play in a safe manner with age appropriate toys and equipment.

As your child approaches 2 years of age they will move up to the toddler room to continue their learning and development. There is a sensory room next to this where your child can enjoy a variety of experiences with light projectors and fluorescent toys.

The 3 and 4 year olds in the preschool group have two rooms which operate on a free flow basis, plus access to the outdoor play area. This means that your child can have some element of choice of whether they want to be inside or out when they are playing and learning. These rooms are equipped with age-appropriate resources for learning and creative play, which help your child gain knowledge and develop their physical and social skills to prepare them for primary school.

The outdoor play area has a large deck with a playhouse and covered sandpit, and an area of safety surfacing for more physical play which is partly covered by a large gazebo to give some protection from the elements. There is also a quiet garden corner where your children can plant their own flowers and vegetables to learn how things grow.
