Paula said: “Observation is really key with Montessori.
“We work a key worker system so they can observe what the child is interested in and work out an individual plan for that child.
“It’s a very individual and independent style of learning with very specialist equipment.”
The nursery will also run language classes, a forest school and a toddler group.
