Arrange a visit

If you would like to arrange to visit the school during a Montessori session please contact us either by phone or by email and we will make an appointment at a convenient time. We welcome both parents and your child. Initial visits last about 15 minutes and further visits may be arranged. 


To secure a place please fill out an enrolment form requesting what sessions you would prefer.

Once registration is complete a place will be confirmed in writing and a Welcome Pack will be sent. A free trial session will be offered the month preceding entry.

Chives Montessori is registered by Suffolk County Council as a participant in the Early Years Development Plan.

Government funding is available for eligible two year olds and all three and four year olds.
