Spring Close Montessori is a 26 place Nursery that operates from the Guildhall, on Spring Close, Burwell.
We are situated adjacent to St Mary's Church.

Our opening hours are Monday, Tuesday & Thursday 9.00am-3.30pm, Wednesday and Friday 9.00am-1.00pm, and in addition to this we offer a daily breakfast club for the early starters! from 8.00 - 9.00.

We operate an inclusive approach at Spring Close Montessori whereby all families and children are welcome at our nursery. We will discuss the individual needs of your child with you when you register with us.

We offer Pre-school education to help children develop important skills and knowledge early in life in a fun, interesting and stimulating environment,
with caring teachers, genuinely reflecting the traditional Montessori method of education along side the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum.

The essence of Montessori education is that every child is treated with respect, given freedom within the limits of a carefully structured environment, and allowed to develop naturally at his or her own pace.

In the Montessori classroom the children choose from a wide range of self-educating and self-correcting activities, working with each for as long as he or she needs to.

Learning the correct answers will get a child through school, but learning how to learn is a preparation for life.? - Maria Montessori

Maria Montessori recognised that children have a natural willingness to explore and that the best motivation for learning is self-motivation.
