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 spacious grounds, the school offers ample safe parking and excellent outdoor facilities. We are regulated and inspected by OfSTED and meet the National Standards for Childcare.


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.


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.


Therefore, the specific goals for the students who attend Dulwich Montessori Nursery School are as follows:


Develop a positive attitude towards school in each student

Most of the learning activities are individualized.  For example, 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.


Helping each student develop self confidence as an independent learner

Many junior and senior school students have difficulty in school because they  do not have confidence in themselves.  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.



Assisting each student in building a habit of concentration

Effective learning presupposes the ability to listen carefully and to attend to what is said or demonstrated.  Through a series of absorbing experiences the student forms habits of extended attention, thus increasing the ability to concentrate.


Fostering an abiding curiosity in each student

In a rapidly changing society, all of us are students our entire lives.  A deep, persistent and abiding curiosity is a prerequisite for creative learning.  By providing students with opportunities to discover qualities, dimensions, and relationships amidst a rich variety of stimulating learning situations, the natural desire to comprehend is developed into a habit of curiosity.
