Welcome to Brightstart Montessori Nursery!

The Atrium, North Walsham and The Old School, Scottow

11/01/21 update: Brightstart North Walsham continues to be open for all our children during the current Covid-19 lockdown. Brightstart Scottow will re-open for all our children on Tuesday 19th January.  Stay safe!

Brightstart provides a safe, prepared and calm environment in which children are free to learn naturally from their surroundings. We cater for children between 2 years old and school age.

We have been established in North Walsham since 1996. Our second Nursery opened in the refurbished former Scottow School, The Fairstead, Scottow in September 2008. Our North Walsham Nursery has been based in purpose-built facilities at The Atrium, Spenser Avenue since January 2012.

We are Ofsted registered. Both Nurseries received very positive Ofsted reports at their most recent inspections. (North Walsham EY435785: November 2018, Scottow EY375401: November 2019.)

All children receive Norfolk County Council funding from the start of the term after their third birthday. This funding covers 15 hours per week. Some children are eligible for 30 hours funding per week, depending on parent / carer circumstances.  In addition, some two year old children are entitled to County Council funding. Any additional hours for funded children and sessions for children who do not receive funding are invoiced termly. Details of our fees are available on request.
