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