About Us

Opened in 1993 by Carmen Lyons this well established Little Wolves Montessori Kindergarten within an idyllic rural setting, just 2 miles off the A37, caters for children aged 2 to 5 years and serves the Chew Valley and surrounding area.

 Its teaching has at its heart the ethos of Montessori and builds on to this the Early Years’ Prime Areas of Learning.

 The curriculum blends work on specialist Montessori equipment such as the iconic Pink Tower with traditional early year’s educational activities ranging from a painting easel through to woodland exploration.

 The Kindergarten’s small but hardworking and dedicated team of appropriately qualified staff create a happy, caring and stimulating learning environment with a good staff to pupil ratio.

 All of our staff are fully EFR Pediatric trained.
