Clifton Children's House

The Clifton Children's House Montessori School was established in 1989 and is registered for 24 children. The school is now located in 6 Gordon Rd Clifton BS8 1AP under the new ownership of Mrs Mary Lazo 

We start the youngest children (aged between 2 and 3 years) in a smaller group in the afternoons and during their pre-school year they usually come in the mornings. Education continues until the age of 5.

Sessions run Monday to Friday for 38 weeks a year.
The morning session runs from 9.15am to 12.15 pm (Monday - Friday) with an optional Early Bird session from 8.30 - 9.15 am.
The afternoon session runs from 1.15pm to 3.15pm (Monday - Thursday) with an optional extended pick-up at 4.00 pm.

Lunch club is available Monday to Thursday, allowing some children to stay for full days.

We feel it is preferable to stick to one method of pre-school education. We recommend that children progress from a minimum of 2 sessions to 5 sessions per week and that they remain with us until they go into their Reception class at Primary School.

As a recognised Private Provider of nursery education in the Bristol Early Years Development and Childcare Plan, a nursery grant of £4.21 per hour for a maximum of 15 hours per week is available for all children from the term after their 3rd birthday.


Partnership with parents is important to us. Regular open evenings are held for prospective parents. Contact us for details. Interested parents may visit the school by arrangement.
