Our ‘West Hampstead’ Rainbow Montessori Nursery in West Hampstead was the very first Rainbow Montessori School to be set up by Linda Madden in 1982.
Its instant success paved the way for all our future nurseries.
Our West Hampstead Nursery is situated within the premises of an incredibly spacious, bright and beautiful church hall on
Sheriff Road which is only moments from West Hampstead tube, train, and bus links. One of the most beautiful features of this nursery is its ample play area and stunning garden which our students have proudly taken part in creating.
As with all our Rainbow Nurseries, Sheriff Road follows traditional Montessorian teaching methods and structure.
At Rainbow we always strive to provide the best quality environment and educational materials for your child- Sheriff Road is MEAB accredited and all our teachers are fully qualified in Montessori education by recognized Montessori Training Colleges.
