Horsham Montessori is a day nursery offering early years childcare for children aged two to five-years-old. The nursery also offers a holiday club for children aged up to seven in the Summer, Easter and Christmas holidays. The nursery is an accredited Montessori nursery, and is regularly inspected by both Ofsted and the Montessori Education and Accreditation Board (MEAB).

The nursery has been following the Montessori method since 1996. They respect the parents’ leading role as their child’s first educators. Working alongside them, they nurture the child’s innate confidence and desire to learn. As a natural extension of the home, they offer a safe and stimulating environment, where they care for your child as a precious individual.

The nursery follows the principles for Montessori environments, which should:
- Provide opportunities that are meaningful for the children who are using it
- Contain beautiful, interesting objects and activities so the child is drawn in
- Be calm, so the child can focus
- Be accessible and orderly, so the child can find whatever they need and return it to its place when finished with it.

Montessori education focuses on ‘following the child’ according to each child’s unique potential. Children take the lead, and are intrinsically motivated to learn themselves. When a child has freely chosen what they are doing, they will often enter into a deep spell of concentration that may last several minutes or several hours - this ‘state of flow’ is at the heart of child-centred learning. The teachers’ job is then to observe - this gives them insight into what the child’s interests are as well as what sorts of new challenges to offer in order to create an environment that will support their development in all areas.

Reviews

10 Horsham Montessori has a Review Score of 10 (9.967)

The Review Score of 10 (maximum of 10) for Horsham Montessori is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 5 out of 5 from 10 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Horsham Montessori in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 5 out of 5 from 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.967 for Horsham Montessori is calculated as follows: ( (116 Excellents x 5) + (4 Goods x 4) ) ÷ 120 Ratings = 4.967

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 5 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Horsham Montessori is based on 10 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 7 positive Reviews (35 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 10 Reviews ÷ 7 Target Reached = 1

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

I feel lucky to have found such a wonderful nursery. Their loving and caring approach towards my son from the moment he started is what makes the nursery an incredibly special place. It really is a pleasure to go to work with the knowledge that he is in safe, kind and caring hands. All the staff work so hard in creating a happy place for him and I know great efforts are always being made to provide the best start in his early years.

I have used this playschool for my own child and now my grandchild. The staff are very friendly and helpful if you have any help or advice queries.

I have always admired the no dummy policy and that they promote drinking water and not juice.

All in all one of the best nurseries I have ever used.

Horsham Montessori is a well-organised nursery with an outstanding team of caring individuals. My daughter attended this nursery until she went to school and I was impressed with it then. Now my son attends and it is even better than before thanks to new ownership. The staff are thoughtful and supportive; their passion for Early Years education is evident in everything they do. I wholeheartedly recommend this nursery to anyone looking for a setting for their child.

My son absolutely loves going to preschool and has made many friends since starting seven months ago. His development in numeracy, literacy and practical skills has been incredible. The levels of effort and care put in by all the teachers and management is clear. We are kept really well informed about all aspects of the preschool and get regular updates about the progress our children are making and the activities they have been up to. They have a lovely outdoor space along with an allotment which makes for hands-on learning.
I can’t recommend the preschool enough and will be sending my next child here too!

Extremely happy with the setting and my child is always happy to go to nursery. I feel that my child has learned and benefited so much by attending this setting. She has come home with new skills and has even asked to sit on the potty with no training from us.
