"Little Orchard Woodlands Montessori Nursery offers a natural process of playing and learning. Children are empowered to be independent to explore and succeed to their full potential. We are so lucky to be on a school site and work in partnership with Woodlands Park Primary School, regularly participating in school events and integrated group visits with the reception classes.
I like working at Little Orchard Montessori Nursery because of the benefits of children learning and developing through the Maria Montessori ethos. We have a child-centred approach in the setting with a wonderful variety of outside spaces including the local park, school field, patio area and garden.
I am also lucky to work alongside a dynamic, caring team who are proactive, experienced and knowledgeable. We all work towards achieving the individuals child’s best outcome. Overall, the nursery is a calm, caring, stimulating and secure environment helping your child to flourish."

Little Orchard Woodlands Montessori Nursery is situated in the grounds of Woodlands Park Primary School, Ivybridge and conveniently is just five minutes from the A38.
The Devon nursery setting is divided into areas by shelving and has a separate area for children under two. Older children are welcome to go to the younger areas, so that siblings and friends can be with each other if they wish to; and should the children want to rest they can curl up in one of our cosy nests for sleeping.
Woodlands Montessori Nursery is open from 8am - 6pm and offers the children breakfast, a two course hot lunch produced by a qualified chef, high tea and snacks. Children are also welcome to bring their own food from home. For more information on our food click here.
Our beautiful outside facilities include raised beds, a sand pit and a hard floor area for water play and painting. We are fortunate that we are able to use the school playing field and are very close to the local park for nature walks.
Children attending Woodlands nursery move on to a variety of primary schools in the Devon area due to our large catchment area. However, we work very closely with Woodlands School sharing expertise, training and resources, making us the ideal choice for children who will attend Woodlands School.
