ABOUT St Edmund’s Montessori
Nestled in the picturesque village of Matching Green, St Edmund’s opened in September 2011 and is run with a mother and daughter partnership at the helm.
We offer a happy, safe and nurturing environment where your children’s learning is developed through a varied range of activities, incorporating EYFS and Montessori curriculums to achieve outstanding results.
Children gain independence and confidence through choosing different activities, both working independently and in peer groups, with free-flow access to a secure and very well resourced garden.
We understand that each child is an individual and treat them as such. We provide a tailored approach to your child’s education, and work in partnership with parents to create a bespoke experience, taking into account their personal interests, learning styles and goals.
‘Staff provide a warm, welcoming environment where children feel safe, happy and settle well. Children form close, caring bonds with their key person, other members of staff and each other. Staff are good role models. They encourage children to develop good social skills, to use good manners and to show care and concern for how each other are feeling‘ – Ofsted report November 2015
