Our Values and Vision

Built on Montessori values, Orchard Cottage Montessori Nursery Ltd has established an excellent reputation for nurturing a caring and happy atmosphere, as well as a high level of academic achievement. The staff and I are proud of the excellent relationships we have built with local families and schools; we place real importance on sharing in their children’s achievements.

We value kindness and consideration for others; we recognise the importance of nature to our happiness and well-being and love our beautiful orchard which we play in. We believe that freedom for a child to develop individually through our Montessori materials and philosophy ensures that every child has the best possible start to learning.

We deliver the highest quality childcare within a safe and stimulating environment for children between the ages of 2-5 years.
