Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery Schools

– A message from Hopes and Dreams

“I founded Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School in 1997 with the vision to provide a superior family-focused Nursery School.

Our mission is to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where our children grow and learn through creative play. We have multi-age classrooms that foster independence, whilst our broad curriculum encourages responsibility and respect. All of our dedicated staff help to guide each child at their own pace.

The Nursery School is registered for 123 children from the ages of 3 months to 5 years old…”

“… and follows the traditional Montessori teaching methods in line with the Early Years Foundation Curriculum. Our families come from a wide catchment area and a variety of multicultural backgrounds which are reflected in our curriculum and day-to-day activities. Thus, the Nursery School supports several children who speak English as an additional language.

Ofsted has once again rated our Montessori Nursery School ‘Outstanding’, and we continue to strive to improve the health and wellbeing of our children and staff through different projects and initiatives.

Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School is accredited by the Montessori Education and Accreditation Board (MEAB) and holds the ‘Green’ quality indicator for which it is assessed bi-annually by the Early Years Foundation Stage Professional Development Officer.

Over the years we are very proud to have won (and been nominated for) several industry awards including Nursery Manager of the Year, the Giant Green Business award for waste minimisation, and have been finalists in the Archant London Environmental award and Nursery World’s Nursery Food award.”
