Note from Fia

For many parents, the prospect of leaving your child at nursery for the first time can be daunting.

This is why at Pangbourne House we give you and your child as much time as you need to feel at home.

Before the official starting date we will invite you and your child to come and visit. This visit is not only to give your child the chance to gain happy anticipations of what there is to come but also offers the opportunity for us to learn from you as much as we can about your child.

Pangbourne House is designed to feel as much like home as possible. Our teachers are a dedicated team who are passionate about what they do, their main aim being to give each child confidence and a love of learning.


Pangbourne House is a safe world for children to explore and be themselves. Our Pangbourne children and teachers follow the three principles of our caring code:

Be kind and gentle
Listen well
Use your words

Which leads us to all the positive qualities in life; compassion, respect for others, patience and a love of looking outwards into the world.


Our curriculum includes the Montessori method complemented by the Early Years Foundation Stage guidance and our unique Creative Art Room.


The Montessori method encourages the child to enjoy the process of learning. It does not introduce the competitive drive of other curricula and yet leads each child to develop their full potential. The ‘failure to keep up’ approach is avoided by the thorough observations that the teachers make.


We believe that the Early Years Foundation Stage Guidance complements the Montessori method. It understands the importance of giving a child a holistic education and the recognition that young children need to learn through practical experiences rather than being taught.


It is our belief that instigating creative learning at an early age encourages imaginative thinking throughout childhood and beyond. The implementation of creativity into early years education encourages the child’s understanding of other people.
