"In summary a highly stimulating and welcoming environment fully reflects the children's backgrounds and the wider community. The exceptional organisation of the education program reflects rich, varied and imaginative experiences that meet the needs of all children exceedingly well."

Welcome to the online home of The Little Sweethearts Montessori. My name is Nicola and I am an Ofsted registered childminder and Montessori teacher and I established The Little Sweethearts in September 2007 to provide a home based, highly motivated, independent childcare provision. I work with my daughter Tania, also an Ofsted registered childminder, and two assistants. We are very proud to have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted in all areas of childcare provision, and to have achieved accreditation under the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board.

We belong to the Surrey Early Years Quality Assured Network of Quality Assured childminders and are regularly assessed by Surrey County Council to show that we have exceeded their standards for childminding in line with the Surrey County Council Early Years Quality Improvement Award. By using a quality assured childminder you will know that your child is being looked after by someone who is committed to raising the quality of their service.

Montessori uses a holistic approach that allows the child to develop as a happy, confident individual.
Forest School is an educational experience using the outdoor forest environment as a classroom.
Early Years Foundation Stage ensures that your child achieves the most that they can in their earliest years.
We are proud to have been rated Outstanding by Ofsted in all areas of childcare provision.
