“Montessori is about a child with a stick, digging a hole in the mud – hands dirty, engaged, fascinated, uninterrupted.”

Forest School

We are delighted to announce the forthcoming arrival of our first full-time Colourbox Forest School, opening 5 September 2022 for children aged 30-60 months.

If you would like your child to attend a day, or more, at our new Forest School please register your interest with Miss Lindsey:  colourboxmontessori@gmail.com or call Miss Sandra on 07565359139 if you have any questions. Our Forest School, in the heart of Nowton Park will be for our sole use with walled gardens on three sides and fencing along the border, with two gated entrances. Originally developed by Christine Oliver, a former Colourbox parent,  it is a wonderful outdoor environment where children can explore, play and learn, supported by experienced Forest School staff who will be led by our amazing Miss Debbie Dormouse.  Open 8/5.15 Monday and Wednesday, 8.45/4.15 Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Fully catered on our two long days, hot lunch and snacks on the three shorter days. We have plans for a new log cabin to accompany the current hobbit house. So many established outdoor experiences including a maize maze, mud pool, hammocks, gardening, country kitchen, construction – it’s just beautifully amazing!

Outside Learning

Children enjoy being outside in all seasons, spending time growing plants, discovering and identifying wildlife, exploring, building dens, eating lunch and taking naps in the fresh air!


Colourbox Montessori Bury St Edmunds

At Colourbox Montessori we use a secure online platform called Blossom to track and record your child’s development and achievements, and highlights are delivered to your phone (or other device) every day. You are also able to upload your own observations of your child – sharing your child’s nursery journey builds strong trusting parent partnerships!
