Welcome to Colourbox Montessori School

"Having gained an International Montessori Teaching Diploma at the Montessori St.Nicholas Training College in London, I established Colourbox in 1989 in Newmarket. I chose Montessori Education for my own two children (now adults) because I saw how the Montessori method inspired all children, whatever their starting point, to explore and develop their own unique talents." Susie Norman.

We strongly believe that you are your child’s first and most important teacher.

Working together we will help your child to develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially – enabling them to embrace life with eagerness and confidence. We also aim to create a community of families who can learn from each other and provide a strong base for their children.

We embrace the Early Years Foundation Stage framework 2014.

We also participate in the government Early years funding scheme which provides free sessions for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. Please telephone or email for details of how this will benefit your child.

"We will never be able to express how much Colourbox Montessori, and especially our son's teacher, have meant to us all as a family. Thanks to your constant efforts Aidan is well prepared for school and for future learning"

Jo Ferreira

"Our daughter chooses to go to Colourbox over having a day off - giving us reassurance about the decision we made over 3 years ago when she first started. Her primary school has a huge act to follow! We will be very sad to move on but we do so knowing that Gabriella has the background to do well. Thank you Colourbox!"

Rebecca Wilson

"Having started in The Nest right through to The Ocean room we are genuinely sad to be at the end of Archie's Colourbox journey. We knew nothing about Montessori at first, but we couldn't be more thrilled with the amazing start that it has given him."
