Foxglove Montessori is an independent nursery school established for over 20 years in the heart of Stowmarket. We have two nurseries both providing a warm and friendly learning setting.
Foxglove Violet Hill was opened in September 2018. It provides a Montessori nursery with a fantastic outdoor area.
The Montessori Method is an approach to education that enables children to develop in a natural way, by being given the best possible conditions to promote social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. Our aim is to enable the child to achieve his/her full potential.

At a glance
We are using a planning system called 'In the moment planning' this term. This involves our teachers observing the children, joining in with their play and extending their learning whenever we see a teachable moment. Each week different children will be chosen as focus children, and teachers will particularly watch for teachable moments with these children.
A visit from the firefighters
We had a visit from the firefighters from Stowmarket fire station. The children were able to squirt the fire hose and pretend to drive the fire engine. A huge thank you to the fire fighters who answered all our questions and taught us all about what to do if there was a fire at home.
