The name Mini Miracles was chosen to represent exactly what we think of children; that they are a gift, an amazing and wonderful occurrence, each one unique.
Mini Miracles Montessori was first established in 2020. We provide a homely, happy, family-based environment for children to feel cared for whilst enjoying learning at their own pace. The nursery is a family-run business with over 20 years of teaching experience. We run the nursery on a full-time basis – that is from 8:00am to 6:00pm, Monday to Friday for 50 weeks of the year. We are, of course, an Ofsted registered nursery.
Working With You
The happiness and well-being of your child is of upmost importance to us, but we also realise that it is vital that we earn the trust and confidence of you, the parent, and that you are content with what we do and how we do it. Parents and prospective parents are always welcome to come into the nursery. Working together we can produce happy, confident children who thrive and have every opportunity to fulfil their natural, innate potential.
We post regular news updates to all our parents, including those on the waiting list, and we have a dedicated Facebook page, Instagram page and Twitter handle so you can stay informed on the go. We also take communicating with each individual family about the specific progress of their own child very seriously. Each child’s Keyperson will create an individual ‘Learning Journal’ for them, allowing you to see how your child is progressing, with photos, observations by staff and examples of work. These have proven extremely popular, and of course you get to keep them at the end of the year!
Perhaps most importantly, all our staff are regularly available at the start and end of the day to talk to about anything you may wish; your child’s progress, any concerns you may have, anecdotes about your child, or just a chinwag!
At Mini Miracles we believe that allowing children access to good quality pre-school education enhances their future life chances. It is a belief that is backed up by research and as such we genuinely want our nurseries to be the best and we want your child’s nursery experience to be positive, meaningful and above all fun. In addition, we recognise that each child is an individual with their own specific needs. Our staff tailor each child’s care and learning plan to their unique requirements and create an environment that celebrates all that makes them a special individual.
Our aim is to offer a broad learning and development programme that integrates the Montessori approach alongside the standards set in the Early Years Foundation Stage. It is internationally recognised that the Montessori teaching method provides an excellent springboard from which children can take maximum advantage of the facilities offered to reach their full potential Thus, our purpose is to provide children with a good all-round educational basis, based on the Montessorian principles of nurturing independence and self-confidence in a safe and warm environment, upon which their primary schooling can later build.

In addition, we offer all our team on-going training, a great range of benefits, in-house and industry recognition and the opportunity to progress within the company. Our philosophy is happy staff make a happy nursery.

Your child is the most important person in the world to you. They deserve to be encouraged, nurtured, supported and loved every step of the way. At Mini Miracles we constantly ask ourselves “would we want this for our own children or family members?” It is a great question that guides our practitioners, managers and senior team and ensures that your child is at the centre of everything we do. We also pride ourselves on the following:
