  • Who we are

    Offering high-quality childcare, in a purpose-designed setting

    Following the Montessori Approach to learning, with hands-on, collaborative play.

    Nestled in a picturesque period property in the coastal town of Ramsgate, The Grange Montessori Nursery provides a nurturing and inspiring environment where children can truly thrive. Step inside and discover our spacious rooms, meticulously designed with age-appropriate resources that ignite curiosity and encourage a love of learning.

    The journey begins in the Seahorses Room, where babies are gently guided through tailored activities that promote exploration and discovery. They can immerse themselves in a dedicated baby garden, specially designed to stimulate their senses and encourage their natural curiosity. As they grow and develop, children confidently transition to the Turtle Room, where they are supported by their dedicated Key Carer and introduced to the principles of the Montessori approach.

    In the Dolphins Room, our Pre-School-aged children embrace the joys of free-flow play, fostering independence and creativity. They eagerly participate in enriching Forest School classes held in our beautiful outdoor space, allowing them to connect with nature, take measured risks, and develop their social and physical skills.

    "A truly lovely nursery"

    "A truly lovely nursery that takes time to care, play and educate each child. We've had learning plans and one-to-one parent evenings. They always feedback on daily activities, and we always receive pictures and updates on the Family app. We've also had a lot of support to help my little one with her speech, helping with referrals to speech therapy and LIFT. Really great nursery, my little one is very happy there. Thank you!"

    "Couldn’t ask for better!"

    "Staff are so accommodating nothing is ever a problem or too much to ask, my daughter has been here since 9 months old during covid and she absolutely loves coming here. I will be sending my next child here too. Always happy to help and feels like I’m sending her into a family who treats her so well couldn’t ask for better! She loves the garden and forest school in rain or sunshine and has happily transitioned from class to class when going up in ages."

    "They’ve been fantastic"

    "My son has been coming here since he was a year old and he’s due to leave next month. I’m so glad we picked The Grange as his nursery, they’ve been fantastic over the past few years."

    Simple and straight-forward

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself.

    Because of this, we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit to the nursery you’re interested in.

    Helping pay for your childcare
