We offer outstanding Montessori practices in a place where loving care allows individual children to excel
“The secret of all nature is to be found in the soul of the child.”
Dr Maria Montessori
Your child's happiness is placed at the centre of everything we do. We work to high standards, reflected in our 'Outstanding' Ofsted status; and we achieve high outcomes within a gentle learning environment.
Children have a great capacity to learn and they begin this journey from the moment they are born. With loving care and encouragement, children will flourish in these early years, whilst their enthusiasm to become like us knows no bounds.
Here, we offer a philosophy and learning within our Montessori ethos. We encourage a sense of community, of peace, independence and understanding. Our aim is to enable the child to reach his/her true potential and to discover a lifelong love of learning. read more
We bring this expertise and experience to our Yorkshire Montessori Training Centre

Early Years Professional Status
Congratulations to Helen Connelly, Hayley James, Becca Jozefczak, and our owner, Helen Gration, who picked up their Eary Years Professional (EYP)awards after studying for this coveted title during 2012!
EYPs lead practice in an inspirational way, supporting other staff to attain new standards and raise present standards. EYPs must hold a degree to undertake such a commitment to drive high quality practice. York Montessori Nursery Ltd is dedicated to continuous improvement in childcare practice and we see the importance of this level of achievement in order to establish and maintain positive relationships with children, communicate and work in partnership with families, carers and other professionals, and lead a nursery devoted to excellence in childcare.
