The Village Montessori is an independent nursery school situated between Reading and Newbury in the village of Bradfield Southend, West Berkshire.

The Montessori Method is an approach to education that enables children to develop in a natural way, by being given the best possible conditions to promote social, emotional, physical and intellectual development. Our aim is to enable the child to achieve his/her full potential.

The school was established 21 years ago and is set in five acres of meadow and woodland in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
