Pocklington Montessori Nursery has gained a top award under the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board (MEAB) scheme.
The scheme offers support and guidance to Montessori nurseries in order to ensure that Montessori provision is of a high quality.
The scheme, which includes two visits by assessors, also seeks to reassure parents that their school meets all the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.
The school received an accreditation certificate and the MEAB Accredited logo for use on their website.
The school, which has 100 children, was also presented with a plaque to celebrate their success – along with a number of other accredited schools – at an awards ceremony held at the Institute of Education in London.
