The Beehive Montessori School
Providing high-quality education for children aged 2½ to 5 years.
At The Beehive, we are acutely aware that a child’s developing brain is directly dependent on the quantity and quality of experiences in his or her early years. Great efforts are therefore made to provide the most appropriate environment for our pupils.
The progress of each child is monitored and activities are introduced to inspire and support further development. We have an enormous range of specially-designed Montessori teaching materials. These are set out in clearly defined areas and are fully accessible at all times.
The staff truly have a love for children and they work hard to create a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment. They recognise the uniqueness of each child and treat them with respect. Children are encouraged to do things for themselves and are also helped to think for themselves. This independence is the cornerstone of Montessori teaching; it fosters self-respect and self-confidence and enables each child to participate in life and have a positive attitude toward its challenges.
Established in 1990, The Beehive Montessori School has developed an excellent reputation among parents and local schools. It is housed in St Michael’s Church Hall, in Amersham, Buckinghamshire – a bright, clean and secure place to learn.
I hope that the information within this website helps you to decide whether The Beehive is right for your child. If you have any questions, or would like to visit the school, please contact me at any time.

Link with Early Years Foundation Stage
At The Beehive, the six learning outcomes of the Early Years Foundation Stage are integrated into a wider Montessori curriculum. The Montessori curriculum includes practical life activities, sensorial activities, language and literacy, mathematics, history, geography, zoology, botany, science, culture, music, drama, art, craft, PE and cookery.
The principles of the EYFS are very much in tune with Montessori: we recognise that each child is unique; that children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships; that they learn and develop well in enabling environments and that children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
