Baldersby Park Montessori Nursery School in Topcliffe, near Thirsk, welcomes babies and children up to school age. We follow the best of traditional standards and provide a warm and welcoming environment in which children are nurtured, motivated and eager to learn.

In our first-ever Ofsted report published in July 2023, we were rated Good in all areas covered by the inspection, namely Overall Effectiveness, Quality of Education, Behaviour and Attitudes, Personal Development and Leadership and Management.

Our children are taught by experienced Montessori teachers, who give each child the best opportunity to develop both holistically and academically through the benefit of small classes and an enriching curriculum.

We ensure that all our children benefit from varied and well-directed early learning opportunities through their involvement in a wide range of practical and educational activities. This is supplemented with the support of one-to-one teaching, directed at each child’s specific educational requirements and well-being.

Baldersby Park Montessori Nursery School have adopted the Department of Education and Skills Early Years Foundation Stage Framework (EYFS).

This is successfully incorporated into the Montessori environment, unique in our area, which we provide at Baldersby Park. We are very proud of our reputation for providing excellent quality care and education, helping each child to fulfil their potential.

Our values are:

  • Being kind
  • Looking after ourselves and others
  • Sharing
  • Looking after our toys and books
  • Believing in yourself
  • Accepting others

These values underpin our nursery ethos in preparing the children for their future by supporting them in being confident, independent and curious learners with a solid understanding of the wider world.

About our nursery


Our Nursery is located within the grounds of Queen Mary’s School with fantastic facilities to hand. It is split into three spacious classrooms, and has a variety of outdoor spaces for the children to explore.


We use an online e-learning journal to record the development of each child in our setting. Parents can access the system and see current snapshots so are more up to date with their child’s learning.

Nursery Funding

Our funded sessions run from 9:00am – 12:00pm & 1:00pm – 4:00pm. We offer an Early risers Club from 8:00am, Lunch club and Late Finish sessions till 5:30pm.

Our Rooms

Baldersby Park Montessori Nursery has three rooms which follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) framework. In these areas, babies and children are able to develop at this own pace with lots of stimulating activities to help this development.

Each of the rooms – Caterpillars (ages 0-2), Ladybirds (ages 2 to 3) and Butterflies (ages 3-4) is led by a senior member of staff who is supported by our highly experienced and qualified nursery practitioners.
