We would like to welcome you to British Oak Montessori, a Nursery School. Our journey began in 1993 in West Hampstead in London, England and has blossomed ever since.
Our Nurseries combine play with learning following the Modern Montessori Method of education. The children in our Montessori nurseries enjoy all the activities of a traditional nursery, outdoor play, indoor play, creativity, songs, stories and role play. The children have unlimited access to internationally approved Montessori equipment on easy-to-reach shelves, giving them freedom of choice to choose their own activities under the careful observation of dedicated and qualified Montessori staff.
Teachers within our Montessori nurseries aim to assist the children in their day- to-day knowledge and understanding, not just by teaching them but by showing them the enjoyment and significance of each task completed. Teachers at British Oak Montessori are devoted to the care and development of each and every child, observing their work and individually introducing new challenges when the child is ready.
British Oak Montessori aims to nurture children into strong and independent individuals through positive relationships created and strengthened through our Nursery. Our ethos is to keep children happy, safe, confident, independent and learning in an enabling environment.
Through the use of the Montessori approach, a child will acquire knowledge of his or her own through hands-on experience in a safe nurturing environment filled with love and acceptance. Our Montessori curriculum identifies main areas of activity which encompass the six areas of learning and development identified and accepted in the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage). These are namely: Practical Life, Sensorial, Language and Literature, Mathematics, Culture, Arts and Crafts, Music, and Physical Activities…
“My sons started Primary School, I was concerned the teachers told me they were misbehaving, but later found out they were bored. I am pleased to say they are now behaving, but read with the 8 year olds, not the four year olds. It was just too easy for them. Alessandra and Dario say thank you. “
“I am now enrolled on a Montessori teaching course the way my daughter loved going to your nursery every day and how she learn’t inspired me to become a Montessori teacher.”
“Cole just completed his GCSE Math’s and Biology at just 11 years old. I cannot thank you enough.”
“Thank you so much, Francesca got into Oxford University, her first years the formative years as we called them gave her the greatest start in life. Thanks again.”
“I want to thank you Angela, the first nursery I found for my first son Adam was too rigid and he wasn’t happy, so I sent him to another but he just played all day. When he went to big school, his teacher told me he didn’t know his letters or numbers and the other children laughed at him. Thankfully I found your lovely nursery and my second son John has started Big School and is top of his class at numbers but equally has made friends easily and enjoys playtime just as much with all his new friends. You got the combination just right.”
