Childcare and Nurseries
Longacre Childcare is a small company that has grown directly in response to the needs of local families in the Sevenoaks and Tunbridge Wells areas. In 2013 the company was bought by Montessori St. Nicholas, a charity whose aim is to educate people and establishments on the benefits of the Montessori philosophy.
Our nurseries are homely and creative and children learn spontaneously within a happy, loving and secure environment designed to meet their changing needs. We are very proud of our staff who are known for their dedication and commitment to each and every child that comes through our doors. They are professional, friendly and caring, giving support to both the children and their parents.
Working within the Early Years Foundation Stage framework, our philosophy is based on a combination of Montessori education principles and the importance of outdoor play. Our environments are special places which provide plenty of opportunities to explore and discover, encouraging children to learn through their senses and by discovery, promoting self-confidence and independence, whilst learning to work and play companionably with others.
