Welcome to Westacre Montessori School
For nearly forty years Westacre Montessori School has offered exemplary pre-schooling to children in West Norfolk. It started as a small enterprise, and over the years has grown in reputation, popularity and size.
In 2016 TRH Duke and Duchess of Cambridge chose to start their son George’s educational journey at Westacre Montessori.
We provide a happy and safe environment, and a thorough application of the Montessori philosophy, so that every child can develop to their full potential.
We believe that happiness, self confidence and enjoyment are paramount for a child’s learning process. Every child in our care is given, personal and individual attention to her or his own needs, providing a foundation for their future opportunities and interests.
The Montessori method, allied to our caring and well prepared environment, will help your child to develop intellectually, emotionally and socially, and to embrace life with confidence and curiosity.
The Pink Tower
The pink tower is used to develop visual and physical appreciation of size in three dimensions and to develop co-ordination and fine motor control. It offers an early pre-maths experience of comparison and the opportunity to use the vocabulary of size.
“The most important period of life is not the age of university studies, but the first one, the period from birth to the age of six.”
Practical Life - Our youngest children start their Montessori education with practical life skill. Picking up bees with tweezers help develop their fine motor skills.
