Exceptional learning environment in London

The Oval Montessori Nursery established in 1989, provides a happy, nurturing environment for 20 children from two and a half years to five years in a unique park location.

Our classrooms are prepared environments designed to support the child's needs for purposeful activity. They are divided into separate areas which interrelate. These areas are practical life, sensorial, language, maths, and culture. We appreciate that each child is different, and we give them an individualised work programme allowing them to develop at their own pace.

The children are free to choose their own activities or 'work' from any of the areas along with art projects and imaginative play. They can work alone or with others or, they can also just choose to watch. We gather together at least once a day for stories, songs, and chats.
