About Us

Our nursery is a Montessori school that provides a warm and nurturing environment for pre-school children. 

We are conveniently situated just off the Watton Road, opposite The Spire Hospital, close to the University of East Anglia, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital and Norwich Research Park and have ample off road parking. To find us and/or contact us please see our contact page here.

Our open plan prepared environment offers a calm and tranquil environment for children to play and learn.  The enclosed garden is perfect for outdoor learning and we utilise the local marshes for forest school exploration and discovery.


All our staff are highly skilled, warm and caring.  Key people are fully Montessori trained and we are the only accredited Montessori setting in south Norwich.  Because we are a small school we are able to offer care to each and every child that meet their individual needs.  We give them freedom of choice and help them to develop in their own time.

Our school was established in 1985 and has been owned and managed for the past 12 years by Sarah Johnson.  Sarah was a parent at the school who trained as a Montessori teacher and now offers the amazing care and guidance that her own children enjoyed.

Norwich Montessori School is rated as Outstanding by Ofsted and Accredited by the Montessori Centre International (MCI).
