Our Aim

In Buttercups and Daisies we introduce your child to the early Montessori practical life and sensorial equipment, teaching them in a homely, happy atmosphere in preparation for the Yellow Room and Stepping Stones.
We work with a ratio of one teacher for a maximum of four or less children which allows the children to have a gentle and kind introduction to the Montessori Method of Teaching.


We have created two lovely rooms with early Montessori exercises alongside conventional play equipment designed for this age group, creating a place where the children are free to learn to play, to discover and grow. The children are cared for by qualified, loving, calm members of staff all with years of experience with small children. All our staff are registered with Ofsted and receive regular in-house Montessori training sessions.

The Outdoor Playroom

Buttercups and Daisies share a lovely bright outdoor playroom, giving the little ones a space where they can engage in sand play and climb and bounce if it is wet outside, allowing them to get some fresh air whilst undercover.

The sessions

The sessions are filled with lots of lovely, fun hands-on activities. Each child has a key worker who follows their progress and teaches the child in the Montessori way one-to-one.
During the sessions, we introduce the children to early sensorial material and practical life activities, alongside lots of role play and art activities, building their co-ordination and concentration for yellow room/stepping stones.

Buttercups & Daisies School/Uniform

Each child is supplied with a school overall. Sweatshirts, t-shirts, polo shirts etc, can be purchased from our uniform shop. It is requested that all clothes which may be removed are labelled with the child's name.

Toilet Training & Nappies

We have full nappy changing facilities and encourage potty training when your child is ready. We provide all the nappies, wipes and creams.
