Award winning
Montessori nursery

Based in Stallingborough, Lincolnshire

Welcome to The Children’s House

A warm welcome to the children’s house.

Founded in 2000 and based on many years of experience in early years, the nursery provides outstanding care and education for children aged birth to five.

We have worked in early childhood education for over forty years and seen many changes in that time. Policies and priorities come and go but we strive to remain true to our core values. We believe that the period of early childhood is crucial in an individual’s development and that warm, nurturing relationships are key to children’s wellbeing and their disposition to learn.

We have a team of highly trained and qualified early years professionals – many of whom have trained in the Montessori education philosophy – who will work in partnership with you to enable your child’s holistic development.

We are very proud of the difference we make in supporting learning and development, and our team continue to work hard offering fantastic opportunities for young children.

We hope you will visit soon and discover for yourself what makes our nursery a special place for children.

The boys have both grown so much in their time with this absolutely wonderful place, home away from home. The boys very quickly settled and loved their time there. In fact they absolutely blossomed, making wonderful friends and progressing in so many ways. Their individual characters absolutely shine out now. Their special books 'learning journeys' are the most beautiful keepsake of their time here and precious memories to treasure. - Parent

Sincere thanks to the parent who sent this message:

"I just wanted to contact you to express my utmost thanks to the staff at The Children’s House, Stallingborough. My son left there yesterday after 2 1/2 years to start school in January. It was a very emotional day for us all. My son has non-verbal autism and complex special needs. He has been made to feel so welcome and part of the family at The Children’s House from day 1. The ethos, environment, resources, standard of education/teaching and values are second to none.

Special thanks has to go to Jo, the Manager, who has been supportive of us throughout and Sue Jackson in particular, who has been my son's 1:1 for the last 2 years. She is an absolute credit to you. She is compassionate, dedicated, passionate and patient. She is the most wonderful person inside & out and is an advocate for all those children with additional/special needs, continually fighting for advice and support to ensure they reach their full potential.

I cannot thank Jo & Sue, and the whole of the Children’s House, enough for ensuring my son had the best start in an early years setting. If I could take Sue with us to his next setting I would!

Keep doing what you’re doing, it’s absolutely exceptional and vital."
