Welcome to Caterpillars


Caterpillars Montessori Pre-School provides the perfect environment for children to flourish and grow, giving them the skills and confidence they need to spread their wings and soar when the time comes to move on to school. The Montessori method is child centred, tailored to each individual to bring out the very best in them with an emphasis on independence, freedom within limits and respect for a child's natural psychological, physical, and social development. 

We provide a safe, stimulating environment, skilled and dedicated staff and a lively curriculum with plenty of hands on activities.

The school is located in the Appleton Hall in the heart of the beautiful Hampshire village of Hartley Wintney, and serves the village and surrounding area.

"We chose Caterpillars as we’d heard from other parents that it had a fantastic reputation. We love the fact that the school follows Montessori methodology and principles helping our child to develop into a strong and independent individual. We also absolutely love the key workers who are always so supportive and take fantastic care of our daughter. Each week we see significant and positive changes as a result of the excellent loving care she’s being given by the nursery staff."
