The School

Welcome to Kew Montessori.  For over 35 years we have served the families of Kew providing the best quality Montessori nursery education for children from the age of 2 years until they start school.

We aim for our children to be independent and confident and show this through their enhanced social skills and their care and respect of themselves, their friends and teachers, parents and their school.

We hope you will enjoy exploring our website and will come and visit us one day if you wish to consider sending your child to Kew Montessori.

Kew Montessori works in partnership with Kew’s oldest independent school, Broomfield House School

Kew Montessori is based at St Luke’s House, 270 Sandycombe Road, Kew Gardens, Surrey TW9 3NP.

We believe that children’s early education should be a preparation for life. This should be a holistic approach that integrates mind, body and spirit to achieve a truly social school community in which personal relationships and skills are given the highest priority.

We are passionate about Montessori education. We provide an environment in which children develop on an individual basis guided from within by their natural curiosity and by the careful guidance of our experienced Montessori teachers. This nurturing environment fosters self-discipline, self-confidence and an ability to concentrate. Our experience shows that this type of education provides children with a true joy in learning.  We see the early years as a preparation for life and a foundation on which everything that follows is built.  ‘Who’ a child is, we feel, is more important than ‘what’ a child achieves in the form of goals during this time.

“Who a child is, is more important than what a child can do.”
