Lower Covey Montessori Nursery offers quality care and education for children aged 0-11 years.
Lower Covey is situated in the picturesque village of Yetminster, in West Dorset. Surrounded by countryside, the nursery premises is a converted barn which was converted specifically for the purpose of becoming a nursery. The nursery consists of three main rooms, the 'Ladybird Room' for babies and younger toddlers, the 'Dragonfly Room' for slightly older toddlers, and the Montessori Classroom for pre-school aged children. Also within the nursery is a kitchen for the production of our home cooked meals for the children, a nursery kitchen for staff to make snacks, bottles and serve food, a dedicated sleep room, an office, a staff kitchen as well as bathrooms and nappy changing areas.
The rural location of Lower Covey allows for an abundance of outside space, which allows the children to access the natural environment all year round. Lower Covey has a concrete play area with a selection of ride-on and outside toys, a grassy play area, a field with our small animals (rabbits and guinea pigs) and a willow tunnel, a sensory garden, an outside classroom, a vegetable garden and an on-site Forest School area. Lower Covey also has a working farm area, which the children are able to visit to learn about the animals, such as cows, pigs, sheep and ponies.
Lower Covey has a small car park to the front of the building for parents, carers and visitors. To the rear of the nursery is a staff parking area. Lower Covey is unable to accept any responsibility for vehicles parked in the car park. Lower Covey politely requests all users of the car parking facilities park with care and consideration to other vehicles and families.
