Walton Montessori was previously named Stagecoach Montessori when it was established in April 1994. The pre-school has survived through all the government changes and needs of local parents and families to be able to provide the care and education that they are proud of today. Originally being created to support employees of Stagecoach Theatre Arts and then growing to support the local community with a term time pre-school for children aged 2 – 5 years.
This continued as a very successful pre-school and had an excellent name throughout Walton On Thames for many years. Then in 2016 it was realised that the need for full time day care was needed and Stagecoach took the decision to change the pre-school’s offering and from February 2016 opened as a full time pre-school opening Monday – Friday 8am-6pm for 50 weeks of the year. Now only closing for the last 2 weeks in December and all bank holidays. The parents of the pre-school initially had reservations but over the following months the numbers of children attending for the extended sessions and weeks throughout the year rose and is still gradually rising.
Walton Montessori are now proud to say they are a successful full time pre-school setting offering exceptional and passionate childcare which enables the children to develop and progress throughout their early years and ensuring each and every single child is school ready.
Most recently in 2018 Stagecoach Montessori became Walton Montessori when Inspired Learning Group purchased the pre-school from Stagecoach and will support the existing model of passionate and dedicated childcare and education to be even more successful and striving to provide the best pre-school education and most stimulating and engaging environment for the children that attend.
