Welcome to Elmwood Montessori School
The Elmwood Montessori School is an independently-run Montessori nursery school for two- to five-year-old children. Located in a beautiful church centre, with the use of the main hall, a smaller classroom, children's cloakroom, kitchen and a secure outside play area, the school is registered for 40 children. It is fully equipped and furnished and staffed by qualified Montessori nursery teachers and assistants.
We embrace the Montessori approach and provide a broad range of activities which encourage independence, foster self-confidence and extend knowledge in a supportive, attractive and fun environment.
Housed in St Michael's Centre in the leafy Grove Park area of Chiswick, the school is light and bright and well resourced, with a versatile area for outside play. Children attend three-and-a-half-hour sessions in the mornings (8.45 am - 12.15 pm) or afternoons during term-times, with the opportunity for extended days until 3.30 pm. Elmwood’s teachers guide the children through all areas of the early years curriculum with sensitivity, care and a shared sense of excitement, and sessions include music, drama, PE and cooking each week.
Established in 1980, and sister school to the Meadows Montessori School, Elmwood is committed to the development of the whole child, and to offering each child the “education for life” which was Maria Montessori’s aim.
