Bayswater 2½ – 12 years

Part of the Maria Montessori School, our beautiful Bayswater (W2) Children’s House (nursery/ preschool aged 2½ – 6 years) is set in an atmospheric church building. Light floods the room from leaded and stained-glass windows and the children can play and learn in a sheltered garden. The wood flooring mirrors the quality wooden Montessori learning materials. This calm and nurturing community accommodates a maximum of 16 children.

Our Bayswater Elementary class (primary/ prep school aged 6-12 years) is in a separate part of the same building with an additional garden space, accommodating up to 24 children. In our calm but joyful elementary community our children enjoy the opportunity to flow freely into the outdoor space enjoying indoor and outdoor activities and learning in the open air. Children join from our Children’s Houses and other Montessori nurseries and schools.
