My daughter Lottie Lou, was at Newmarket from age two, and started in Garden House. She then spent a further two years in the World Room. Miss Sandra, Miss Jo and all the staff across the entire nursery are just amazing, and I feel so lucky and blessed that my daughter has experienced Colourbox from age two until she was almost 5 years old. If she had been born later in the academic year I would definitely have kept her in Colourbox until her 5th birthday, as it is such a special place. One day the government will recognise that the Montessori way is the BEST way for pre-schoolers to learn. Colourbox gave my daughter the best possible start to her life in school, and I cannot recommend this establishment highly enough. If you do just one thing for your child – make sure it is Colourbox.

As a mother of 3, safety, good hygiene and great learning opportunities are top priorities for my kids. The team at the Colourbox has met and exceeded all my expectations, from the Nest to the World room I go to work having a peace of mind and being well reassured my kids are perfectly looked after. I highly recommend this as the best nursery in Haverhill. Thank you for all the love and care for our kids

Excellent nursery, my son was at Haverhill site, he was so well looked after, the teachers, managers, staff are all super well trained, kind, always welcoming the children and the parents with a smile. Such a great atmosphere, and the learning is also excellent. Lots of resources and creative activities indoors and outdoors…the nursery is very clean, children have lots of sunlight and fresh air, the free flow is amazing…the communication with parents are excellent, they are so well organised too. I can’t recommend Colourbox Montessori enough, my son had a great and was super well prepared for reception….
