Mixed-Age Classes
Share Early Learning Fun

Infants ages 12 months to 4-year-old toddlers will find a nurturing home away from home, where we introduce them to a variety of sensory and play experiences to pre-literacy and math skills easing their transition to kindergarten.

Accepting Children Ages 12 Months to 4 Years-Old

The different age groups at Fountain Montessori Edgware are our Tulips, aged 12 to 24 months, and our Daisies, aged 24 to 30 months. Roses are ages two-and-a-half to three years old, and Poppies are ages three-and-a-half to four years. We provide the caring attention needed to lay a foundation for lifelong learning, and the confidence-building academics and play that catapult toddlers into kindergarten and beyond.

Open Monday to Friday from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm

Choose from part or full-time care. Morning sessions run from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm and 8:00 am to 6:00 pm, but children may be dropped off and picked up anytime within their relevant session time.

For three siblings, we are happy to offer the eldest child a 10% siblings discount and the second child a 5% siblings discount when all three children are attending our nursery at the same time.

Existing parents/carers enrolled with us can receive a £100.00 discount by making a recommendation to family, friends, or others, including via social media post, provided the new child goes on to register with us and attend the minimum number of sessions required for their age group.

Physical Play is Essential
Exploration and Fun

Our outdoor garden and play areas are where the children play every day, build muscles and motor skills, and develop self-confidence by challenging themselves. Social, emotional skills are also at play while they make new friends and playgroup games.

Gated Grounds With Limited Access Keep Children Safe

Surveillance cameras are in all our classrooms, along with background checks for all who work here, ensure we take all the precautions necessary to make our nursery the haven that supports quality early learning and nurturing.

Our Commitment to Clean
Keeps Us Healthy And Happy

Keeping colds and flu at bay allows us to focus on our goal of caring for infants and delivering quality Montessori early education, that’s why a professional cleaning crew disinfects and cleans our classrooms and common areas regularly.

  • “The children display high levels of self-esteem. They are confident when talking to each other, to the adults in the room and with visitors.”
  • “The parents feel involved in their child’s educational journey and the children benefit from continuity of learning and approach between home and nursery.”
