Welcome to Oaklea Montessori

At Oaklea, we want you to feel at ease. When you place your child into a nursery setting, we understand how important it is for you to know they are safe and cared for in a loving and fun environment. We are an accredited nursery which is affordable and accessible for all children aged 0-5 years.

Why choose an Oaklea Montessori setting?

We aim to provide a homely feel to our nurseries with an open door policy. It is vital to us to work in partnership with our families, recognising how strong relationships benefit the child and their learning journeys in the early years. Oaklea is a Community Interest Company, a not-for-profit business from which any surplus is invested in the community. 

Our many years of experience and dedication makes us an excellent choice for your family. We are caring and nurturing, sharing delight in your child's achievements! With permanent members of staff being either Montessori trained or in training, your child will receive quality childcare and education.
