St Mary’s, Lutterworth

In the quiet rural town of Lutterworth in Leicestershire you’ll find St Mary’s, our nursery that’s located in an old converted church hall. Since 2000, we have been welcoming local children through our doors to learn and grow through play. 

Our nursery has expanded over time due to popular demand and now offers 50 places. It has a large outdoor space which includes a separate baby garden, giving children a place to explore nature and develop new skills through growing fruit and vegetables. 

St Mary’s has a highly qualified team of nursery staff led by early years experts, many of whom have been with us for more than five years. Following the Montessori ethos, we encourage children’s natural curiosity with Awe and Wonder Based Learning, giving them the very best start in life.

Our rooms


Our cosy, Scandi-style log cabin provides a nurturing and calming environment where babies can grow and develop – including with those all-important naps. Your baby will feel right at home in this dedicated space, designed with the littlest ones in mind.


Our toddler room is designed to be a home from home, with calming spaces, music and role play. Each child is encouraged to develop at their own pace, with the freedom to learn and discover through play without pressure.


Our preschool room is on the ground floor with easy access to our large garden. Following the values of the Montessori curriculum provides the foundations for school life while encouraging children to develop their own interests and sense of self.

Awe and Wonder room

All children have the opportunity to enjoy this room, where we encourage language development and creativity through natural resources. Here, every child can feel confident and be whoever they want to be – the ethos which is at the heart of Best Start.

Out and about

We believe it’s important for children to feel part of their local community. We encourage this through regular trips to Lutterworth market where the children help to choose fruit and vegetables for their meals, as well as visits to cafes, parks and the local library.
