About Us

About Our School

Rocks Lane Montessori is dedicated to children from the ages of 2 years old until their reception year of Primary School. Children join us for a morning or afternoon session throughout the autumn, spring and summer terms, with older children able to stay for the full day.

We are located in a bright and beautiful classroom next to the main pavilion of Rocks Lane Multi-Sports Centre, with doors directly on to our private garden with a nature area where we grow vegetables, and enjoy forest schooling. We build extra-curricular activities into our sessions, including yoga and mindfulness, arts and crafts, woodwork, science and cookery.

Our teaching passionately follows the Montessori approach, which is based on the innate potential and wonderful spirit of each child. We aim to nurture a child’s confidence, independence and curiosity for their world, and to prepare each child for the transition to school. Our classroom is an ever-changing treasure trove of materials that children are instinctively drawn towards, structured into a core curriculum that supports each area of a child’s development.

Our most important asset, beyond the setting and the equipment provided, are our teachers. Our teachers are Montessori qualified, teaching with joy in being able to play this important role in the lives of the children who are learning with us.
