Chrysalis Montessori Nursery School

Located at the Village Hall in Rainton near Thirsk, North Yorkshire, Chrysalis Montessori Nursery School have adopted the Department of Education and Skills Early Years Foundation Stage framework as our long term objective. This is successfully incorporated into the Montessori environment, unique in our area, which we provide at Chrysalis. We are very proud of our reputation for providing excellent quality care and education, helping each child to fulfill their potential.

The Montessori Method

The Montessori method is a way of educating young children based on the research and experiences of Italian physician and educator Maria Montessori. Dr. Montessori discovered what she referred to as "the child's true normal nature" during her observation of young children when given freedom in an environment equipped with materials designed for their self-directed learning. The Montessori method aims to replicate the experimental nature of children to encourage and support their true natural way of being.
