Poole Montessori Day Nursery

Poole Montessori Day Nursery 105 Penn Hill Avenue, Lower Parkstone, Poole, Dorset, BH14 9LY
An inspiring nursery to learn and thrive between Poole and Bournemouth

Welcome to our Montessori nursery in Poole, where our long-standing team deliver exceptional care and education to children from 3 months to 5 years.

Smooth and Easy Transition to Nursery Life

We follow your child's individual routine from home, ensuring they always feel safe, secure, and excited to go about their day. This also makes the transition from home to nursery smoother - giving you the peace of mind you need.

Following the Montessori philosophy, sessions are carefully planned for the children attending on that day, so you can be assured that your little one will always receive the very best care, attention, and activities for them to thrive.

Enhancing Early Education

Designed by our Early Years specialists, your little one will flourish and reach their full potential with our enriching and wellbeing-focused Bright Beginnings Curriculum. Within the curriculum are our Growing Enhancements, to help children of all ages develop key skills. With younger children, we focus on reading, writing, and maths, and other enhancements are added as they grow. These include science, art, sports, cooking, and gardening.

Children also enjoy Boogie Mites with its exciting opportunities to learn through music and song.

Follow their progress via the Bright Horizons Family app and learn what keeps them engaged throughout the day.

Fresh Meals and Outdoor Time

A healthy, varied diet is essential for growing little ones. Your child will enjoy a wide range of delicious meals and snacks, all freshly prepared by our onsite chef.

If your little one loves the great outdoors, then they'll adore having freeflow access to our specially designed all-weather gardens. To ensure your child has the very best experience, they'll have access to the best age-appropriate resources, to enhance their playtime and development.
