About little oaks

Welcome to the Little Oaks Montessori Pre-School & Toddler Group Website...... 

We understand that a parents first priority when choosing a Playgroup and Pre-School is finding a setting that they and their children feel comfortable and secure in. At Little Oaks we strive to ensure that we provide a nurturing environment that is safe and fun and run in accordance to the core Montessori principles. We are proud to have achieved "OUTSTANDING IN ALL AREAS" Ofsted 2010 as well as previously in 2006/2007.  

Little Oaks is a registered charity (charity number 1029268) and a non-profit making organisation run by an elected voluntary commitee. We are Ofsted regulated and inspected most recently in July 2010.


Little Oaks are proud to have a great team of fully qualified staff some of who have been with us since we re-opened  in 2003 as the area's only Montessori Pre-School.                                             Leanne Jarvis is our Pre-School Leader with her assistants Lindy Bawtree,Becky Harrison and Jo Curnow. We operate with a high staff to pupil ratio and can take a maximum of 17 children at any session. We can take children from 2-5 years of age.

Little Oaks currently operates within Burrington Parish Hall and has daily access to 3 different outdoor play area's. We are extremely lucky to be able to use the village's Multi Use Games Area (MUGA), as well as Burrington Primary School Garden and Play Field. Having access to a variety of outdoor areas enables us to specifically plan activities to make the most of these area's. On a Wednesday when we use the MUGA we encourage the children to bring in their own bikes and scooters to race around on, most Thursday's we hold a Forest School morning where the children learn about nature, this is held either in the School's Garden or Field. Fridays are generally spent in the field where we like to encourage the children to explore their surroundings. 


Looking for something to do on a Wednesday morning ? Got a baby or toddler ? Then pop in and join us for  a morning of fun, a natter with other mums and dads and a cup of tea.                          Our aim at each session is to provide messy play and a craft activity as well as songs, toys and snacks. Our toddler group is held at the other end of the village hall with the entrance around the back of the left hand side of the building. EACH SESSION COSTS £2.50 PER FAMILY WITH YOUR FIRST SESSION FREE !
