Steventon and Overton Children’s Houses are accredited Montessori nursery schools for children aged between two and a half and six years.
They are both situated in rural Hampshire villages, within the parish halls where an environment is prepared just for them.
There is a happy, calm, friendly atmosphere within the children’s houses where the children learn life skills and prepare themselves for their future. They discover the joy of learning through hands-on experiences and exploration within a secure environment. Watering the plants, washing up, splashing in puddles, buttoning, and painting a wall can all be part of a morning for a child.
We make the most of our idyllic rural locations through daily access to a large garden ideal for parachute games, nature trials, sport, aeroplane impersonations and having fun. Visitors from the community; from musicians to policemen, and artists to dentists as well as regular outings to local farms all help the children find out about their world.
Overton Children's House is a new school offering a wonderful Montessori environment both indoors and out. On entering there is a welcoming and friendly atmosphere and a good range of Montessori activities, ensuring there are many opportunities for children’s learning to be developed and inspired. Staff encourage freedom of choice and independence and are aware that providing further resources fosters links between the areas of the classroom.MEAB
A parentWe have had Maia's school report back and it is fantastic, which we are really happy about, but one of the key points that came across was that despite the fact she started half way through the year, they said that she came to them with some outstanding skills in both literacy and numeracy...and I am 100% convinced that is all down to your wonderful school and teaching and the Montessori method. I am over the moon we made the decision for Maia to have that experience and all I can say is thank you to you and all the team!
