For children aged 2 through to 5 years old

Our Nurseries Offer A True Montessori Education

Rainbow Montessori School includes two beautiful nurseries, situated in prime locations throughout North West London

Our very first nursery was established by Rainbow’s founder, Linda Madden, in our West Hampstead premises in 1982 and then Queen’s Park in 2009.

The independence and self-discipline instilled by the Montessori system of education has enabled Rainbow students to continue onto many of the most prestigious schools in the country – and beyond!!

The Montessori Principles

Principle 1

Respect for the Child

Respect for the Child is the major principle underlying the entire Montessori method.

Principle 2

The Absorbent Mind

We recognize the immense capacity of children to absorb information when given the freedom and independence to learn at their own pace.

Principle 3

Sensitive Periods

Focusing on the individual child and allowing them to develop at their own pace translates into confidence

Principle 4

The Prepared Environment

Each nursery adheres to the traditional layout of the Montessori classroom allowing children a wonderful learning environment and to choose freely from the learning materials as they wish.

Principle 5

Auto Eductation

This leads to individuals who are independent, confident and enjoy learning in whatever environment they find themselves in.
