The Montessori Centenary Children’s Garden

Space to Grow

The garden is sponsored by Montessori Centre International (MCI), which provides training to those interested in applying Montessori principles to early years’ education. It celebrates the work of Montessori St Nicholas and commemorates 100 years of Montessori in the UK. Like the Montessori teaching method, the garden is child-led yet future-driven, offering an engaging space to nurture children, teaching them about the natural world set alongside technology: the future of horticulture.

There are two greenhouses featured in the garden: one inspired by the Walipini designs - a sunken Victorian greenhouse – and another showcasing hydroponic technology, set among living walls, edible walls and an interactive wildlife pond area.
