About Us

The Clapham and Clapham Park Montessori Schools and the Montessori Infant Community provide high standards of nursery education in attractive and well-equipped environments.

The ratio of adults to children is at least 1:3 for children under 2, 1:4 for children aged 2-3 and 1:8 for children aged 3+. These ratios ensure that every child receives a great deal of individual attention.

We use the term ‘Children’s House’ to refer to our Nursery Schools, in accordance with Montessori’s notion of the ‘Casa dei Bambini’ , a home from home environment for children between 2 1/2 and 6 years of age.

Our well-qualified and experienced staff provide a calm and very happy ‘family’ atmosphere within which we aim to help every child to develop to his or her potential.

We run termly Parent Talks on Zoom to introduce you to our facilities and a Montessori education for your children.

Let the children be free; encourage them; let them run outside when it is raining; let them remove their shoes when they find a puddle of water; and when the grass of the meadows is wet with dew, let them run on it and trample it with their bare feet; let them rest peacefully when a tree invites them to sleep beneath its shade; let them shout and laugh when the sun wakes them in the morning.
