Established by Susie Norman in 1990, Colourbox delivers exceptional care and outstanding Montessori education to children aged 3 months to 5 years.

This purpose-built nursery is extremely convenient for parents/carers who travel to Cambridge.
Our on-site “Country Club Cabin” provides exciting opportunities for outdoor learning and for supporting your child as they learn about sensible and positive risks.
Every nursery room opens directly onto a large garden so your child – from baby upwards – can spend much of their day in the fresh air.

I have had 2 children go through colourbox and both love it (1 still there and 1 in school). The opportunity to be independant and guide their own learning has made my son super confident in school and he excels academically.

The staff and facilities are amazing and I wouldn’t send my children anywhere else.

We absolutely love Colourbox Haverhill!! Our daughter has been going since she was approx 9 months old for nearly 3 years! From the start the ladies there have made us feel so comfortable and at ease! Our daughter has loved every minute and has always loved going into nursery then as she’s got older being able to tell me all about the exciting things she’s done afterwards,

The best thing for me personally has been the very low staff turnover! Being able to see the same members of staff continuously has been very reassuring and I know my daughter is safe, settled & comfortable, especially when she’s moved up rooms and some of her teachers have moved up too or worked in the room for short periods to assist transitions, it’s given her the help & reassurance to settle in a new room as she has a familiar face with her 🙂

The activities/toys the nursery have are educational and fun and have helped shaped our daughters knowledge of things we would have never thought to teach her,

Also I cannot forget to mention the amazing healthy home cooked meals they get! Meals I would never have thought she would eat and she’s cleared the plate!! It’s so comforting knowing that while she’s there she’s eating good home cooked food and thoroughly enjoying it!

The care the ladies give really is outstanding and really puts you at ease knowing your child is so well looked after and is safe! If there’s ever any problems they call you straight away (eg feeling poorly or not themselves)

We are absolutely gutted that she’s leaving but I know that she’s been well looked after and has had the best start in life ready her next educational journey!

I can’t thank all the staff enough for the amazing journey we have had with them and would highly recommend Colourbox Haverhill time and time again!! Literally cannot rate the nursery highly enough!!

Huge Thank you to every single member of staff 🙂
