Dulwich Montessori Nursery School provides high quality private education and childcare for children aged 2 years to 5 years.


 Dulwich Montessori Nursery School is a small private Nursery School situated in St. Stephenís Church Hall. Set in a beautiful Church Hall, the school offers great learning environment as well as outdoor activities including Forest School. We are regulated and inspected by OfSTED and meet the National Standards for Childcare. Dulwich Montessori received full Montessori Accreditation in November 2014.


Our school year is 38 weeks, during term-time, and we are open from 9.00am to 3.00pm Monday to Thursday and from 9.00am to 1.00pm on Friday. There is an Early Morning Club available from 8.30am. There is a holiday club available for children attending Dulwich Montessori, which is run at our sister Nursery Dulwich Oaks Montessori.


The main purpose for establishing Dulwich Montessori Nursery School more than a decade ago continues today.  We strive to provide carefully planned and stimulating environment to help our students develop an excellent foundation for creative learning.



 The learning materials at Dulwich Montessori Nursery School have been designed to provide a wide variety of learning experiences geared towards the developmental needs of young children.  Each activity involves experiencing with unique materials proven to be intensely fascinating for the young child.  When engaged in well structured tasks, our students experience inner satisfaction leaving them with a positive attitude towards everything connected with school.


 Each student engages in a learning task which has particular appeal to him/her.  The activities are geared to the childís needs and level of readiness.  Consequently, the child works at his/her own rate, repeating the task as often as he/she likes, thus experiencing a series of successful achievements.  In this manner, the child builds up a positive attitude towards learning.


Our school tasks are designed so that each new step is built on what the student has already  mastered, thus removing the negative experience of frequent failure.  Success after success builds up an inner confidence in the children, assuring them that they can learn by themselves.  These confidence-building activities likewise contribute to the studentís emotional development.
