Queen’s Park

The Rainbow Montessori School includes three beautiful nurseries, junior school and training college all situated in prime locations throughout North West London. Our very first nursery was established by Rainbow’s founder, Linda Madden, in our West
Hampstead premises in 1982 and was followed with the opening of a second nursery in Highgate Village the following year and by Queen’s Park in 2009. Our nurseries cater for children aged 2 through to 5 years old.
Our ‘Queens Park’ Rainbow Montessori Nursery located in the heart of Queens Park is Rainbow’s most recent addition having opened in 2009. Our ‘Queens Park’ nursery is situated on Salsbury Road in a bright, open plan church hall close to all main transport links and the convenience of the high street.

As with all our Rainbow Nurseries, Queens Park follows traditional Montessorian teaching methods and structure. This together with its recent refurbishment and its big, beautiful garden/play area makes it the ideal Montessori Nursery for your child.

At Rainbow we always strive to provide the best quality environment and educational materials for your child- Queens Park is MEAB accredited and all our teachers are fully qualified in Montessori education by recognized Montessori Training Colleges.
The curriculum at Queens Park is very varied and always fun filled! If you would like to find out more about what our Queens Park Nursery gets up to and what activities and outings they have planned please feel free to take a peek at our public blog.

Dushka Vidovic

Classroom Assistant

dushka-jpgAs many of you may know I have worked in the Rainbow Montessori Junior School Head Office as an administrator for a year. In May 2016 I became a qualified AMI teaching assistant and was given the opportunity to work in the lovely Sherriff Road Nursery to begin my teaching journey. I am now moving to the Queens Park Nursery to learn further. I'm a strong believer in the Montessori method and it's philosophy and I'm very exited to be a part of it.

Raijka Krivokapic

Head Teacher

RajkaRajka has a history degree and Montessori Diploma (3-6). I enjoy travelling, performing arts and music. I am a mother to a grown daughter. What I enjoy most working with children is their curiosity for learning – I love to see their happy faces when they say “I did it!”

Christina Tan

Deputy Head Teacher

tan-christinaI am a trained Montessori teacher and has worked in both EYFS and Montessori schools in London. My most recent experience was working at an AMI-base Montessori school in Singapore for the last 2 years. My greatest sign of success being a Montessori teacher is to be able to say, "My children are now working as if I did not exist."
