Haverhill Nursery

Opened in September 2015, and judged as OUTSTANDING by Ofsted in February 2018, this purpose-built nursery school incorporates everything desirable in both a wonderful learning environment for children as well as a happy work space for adults. We use only the highest quality furnishings and learning materials and these are checked daily to ensure that they are safe to use and in good condition. Activities are arranged on shelves within reach of even the smallest child and new activities are introduced to reflect children’s emerging interests. Children may work uninterrupted at tables or on small mats on the floor where they are naturally comfortable. At Colourbox we believe that children thrive on fresh air so all of our rooms are light and airy with direct access to the outdoors. The curriculum provides exciting opportunities for outdoor learning and for supporting children as they learn about sensible and positive risks.

Colourbox Montessori School is an inclusive setting which embraces children of all abilities. Children are encouraged to make their own decisions and we let their personalities shine!

We embrace the Early Years Foundation Stage framework 2017.

At Colourbox Montessori School in Haverhill we have five different rooms for the different age groups.

Children can join us at anytime from the age of 3 months, where their journey will begin in The Nest, an airy, light, purpose-built area which provides a warm, loving and social environment for your little ones.

Your child will continue their journey with us in our Garden and Ocean Rooms, where social skills are developed through a wide variety of practical activities and early Montessori materials, which develop learning through the use of every sense.

We assess children for readiness to move into either the World or Sky Room from the age of 2 years 6 months. Here, their enthusiasm continues to be stimulated through use of the unique Montessori materials.

"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."
