Our very first nursery was established by Rainbow’s founder, Linda Madden, on our in West Hampstead premises in 1982 and was followed with the opening of a second nursery in Queen’s Park, was launched in 2009.
All our nurseries are for children between the ages of 2 to 5 years old and are housed within church premises in some of North London’s most beautiful areas.
Each nursery adheres to the traditional layout of the Montessori classroom allowing children a wonderful learning environment and to choose freely from the learning materials as they wish. The nurseries are all open plan and spacious, allowing children great freedom and mobility.
At our Rainbow Nurseries we aim to bring the best out in each child - to fulfil his/her potential both in academic and human terms. In the classroom, the children are guided in their learning by trained Montessori teachers, who encourage a wide range of subjects but the children remain free to work at their own pace.
The result is that Rainbow children are renowned for their confidence and independence.
At our Rainbow Montessori Nurseries we focus on six core areas of learning:
Creative and Sensorial Development.
At Rainbow we pride ourselves on our excellent music and dance curriculum with end of term shows being one of the highlights of the year!
We emphasize social values, culture and respect for others.
You will find that Rainbow Montessori is a very open and friendly community of teachers, staff, parents and students.
We encourage parents to get involved in all aspects of nursery life and many of our parents end up supporting and creating fun events.
