Welcome to Little Gems

At Little Gems Montessori we provide a welcoming, nurturing and child orientated Montessori Curriculum for children from 18months-5years.

Children start their journey with us in Little Gems Nursery 18months-3years at our location in Betts Way. They then continue onto Little Gems Preschool 3-5s the September after their 3rd birthday at the same site.

The Nursery is open term time only and offers either full or part time care for the children between 9am - 3.30pm. We also open during the holidays for holiday clubs.

The ethos of the nursery follows the principals of the Montessori philosophy, providing child-centred nursery education that allows each child to discover their own self-esteem, confidence and independence, this is intertwined with the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. The Children are the most important members of our nursery and our aim is to make their first experience of school a fun and memorable one.

We pride ourselves in being a fully inclusive setting, embracing and celebrating the diversity of our local community. We can cater for children with an Education Health and Care Plan and offer SEN support for children with additional needs.

What our parents think

I wanted to thank you and your staff for the kindness and care you've shown to both my girls over the past few years. You've really helped them grow into independent young ladies ready for 'big school'.

They enjoy learning and actively seek out knowledge and understanding from the world around them. I think this is down to the interesting opportunities you have provided and the wide variety of teaching tools you have available.
