Lexden Montessori
from birth to five

Welcome to Lexden Montessori! We're a Montessori nursery for children from birth through five, situated in the heart of Lexden in Colchester. We offer baby rooms, a Holiday Club, Forest School, weekly nature walks, theatre, music, cooking, Montessori-trained staff, and much more. Intrigued? Read on!

Our nursery is a villa-style Victorian red-brick. Our ground floor has two indoor classrooms, an outdoor classroom, and a garden. The first floor houses our baby rooms: two main rooms, plus a sleep room and a messy play room. The environment is calm: sash windows flood the rooms with daylight; our floorboards, shelving, tables and chairs (all pine) provide a unified space.

All children have access to all equipment. The children can use the apparatus as and when they wish. We try not to segregate children by age group, as we find that the different age groups of children interact in mutually beneficial ways.

Of course, there's only so much you can see from a website. For the real experience, why not book a viewing?
