Pangbourne House is a relatively new nursery that opened it doors in September 2015 and follows a Montessori ethos. It’s headmistress Sophia Russell-Cobb is a well-known figure having previously ran Ladbroke Square nursery for over 30 years. This nursery benefits from her experience as well as from spacious and well-designed learning area. This includes covered outdoor provision, an indoor hall and dedicated art room. The nursery is warm and friendly and provides a stimulating environment as well as excellent teaching following the Montessori ethos. The recent Ofsted report awarded the nursery ‘Outstanding’ in all areas and they were especially impressed with the ‘highly skilled’ manager and fantastically confident and well behaved children. The children come out with very high levels of development especially in early reading, writing and number. There are 2 fully qualified teachers on staff and the other 8 members of staff hold appropriate early years qualifications. The nursery has also recently started ‘Little Pangbourne’ groups for three mornings a week on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesdays for babies and toddlers aged between 8 months and two years. This will also follow a Montessori curriculum and will run between 9:00 and 11:00. Three mornings a week will cost £729 a term and there will be the opportunity for daily drop ins when space is available. There are also optional extra lessons available for children attending the nursery in ballet, French and yoga.
