Welcome to The Montessori People Nursery School

A warm welcome to the Montessori People Nursery school – Your nursery set in Thornaby, Stockton on Tees.

Our Nursery School offers children in which they can thrive and provides a fantastic start to their lives.

Montessori education is a powerful approach based on a deep understanding of the way your child learns, as an individual. It will put your child on the right path to becoming a confident, self-motivated learner.

Our dedicated and caring team of highly-qualified professionals strive to deliver the best start to your children’s education and always help them build upon their self-confidence, social skills and emotional development.

Our recent Ofsted award of OUTSTANDING for all aspects in all areas of early years’ provision, highlighted this.

Each of our rooms are perfectly tuned to the needs of specific age groups and is overseen by room leaders trained to give children the time and care they need to develop.
