Summertown Montessori Nursery qualifies for a UK Government grant for 3 - 4 year olds and disadvantaged 2 year olds. We are committed to being fully transparent to parents in how this funding is applied – please refer to our Fees page.
As a requirement for obtaining the grant, the nursery is inspected by the Office of Standards in Education (OFSTED).
Over the years, our original nursery, Field House Montessori Nursery, which has been operating since 1996, has consistently achieved a "good" rating, despite restricted premises and shifting judgment criteria.
The newer Summertown Montessori Nursery in superior premises, has had back-to-back "good" ratings by Ofsted (02/06/2019 and 08/03/2023). Additionally, it has achieved a Quality Mark in Early Years educational performance from an accredited international educational organization, the Tribal Group.
