Walthamstow Montessori School is a popular nursery and independent school for boys and girls aged 2–6 years. Established in northeast London since 2001, we use genuine Montessori and Forest Schooling methods in a broad and exciting curriculum. Our teachers have excellent experience in their subject areas and are passionate about their practice.
I think this is a great school. My daughter is in the Lower School and seems to be making rapid progress. She loves going and pretty much runs to get there each day. The staff are warm, welcoming and care about the children. There is a clear vision for the way in which she is taught and we are very fortunate to have this school so close.
I can’t express how happy we are as parents to have found Walthamstow Montessori School. It is such a caring environment where all the staff, from teachers, to assistant teachers, to administration, love and care for each and every child. It feels like our son (and ourselves as a matter of consequence!) found a second family, where all the staff know him so well and deeply care. The place feels like a little oasis of peace and quiet, where Montessori principles are applied with respect for each child.
Though being in the middle of a pandemic, the school never gave up and was quick at organising a range of tools to move online, with daily meaningful lessons, helping children to stay connected with each other and the school.
Being back on school premises feels safe as everyone is truly taking all the precautions to create a COVID safe environment.
I would definitely recommend the school and its quiet and creative environment to any prospective parent!
We have loved every minute at the school and will send our next son there. We only have fantastic things to say about the school and really it has given our child confidence, friendships, knowledge, independence and so much more.
Thank you for running such an amazing school and being so responsive to our needs. It’s clear that lot of effort goes in behind the scenes to make this such a positive place. The school felt right from our first visit and Children’s House is an inspiration. We really feel that our child couldn’t have been in a better environment. We will absolutely miss WMS! Thank you.
