Ladbroke Square Montessori School

Three and four year old funding

At Ladbroke Square Montessori School it is our aim to provide children with strong learning foundations that will support their future education and personal development into adulthood.

We believe in nurturing independent thinking, fostering a love for learning and exploration of the world around them. With the support of caring, knowledgeable staff, the children construct foundations for learning and the ability to face and solve problems calmly.

From one of our carefully prepared, big and bright Montessori classrooms the children will explore and socialise within the safety of a Victorian converted home. Outside, the children happily explore our private garden, in addition the school has daily use of Ladbroke Square Gardens - one of the largest communal gardens in London.

Our objective is to provide children with a safe, warm, and caring environment from which they can play, learn and develop into happy, healthy and inquisitive individuals. Children leave Ladbroke Square Montessori School with a sense of wonder at the world around them.


Our classes at Ladbroke Square Montessori School are filled with children of mixed age and genders from 2 years through to 5 years old. We find our younger children watch and learn from the older children in the school and therefore progress at a greater speed. While the older children gain confidence through their ability to help and guide the younger children. Each child learns at their own pace so no-one is held back. We work towards keeping the ratios as even as possible within each of our classes

Our New Two Year Old Class

We are delighted to announce the introduction of our new Beanies class, especially for two-year olds. From September 2021, we will be offering children a gentler start and introduction into a Montessori class, equipped with materials and play ideas especially for their age range. This will be especially important for our little ones for whom lockdown has restricted their vital social interaction and play. All children will be offered a morning place, with lunch and afternoon additional options. Once the children are ready, they’ll move up into one of the three classes in the main part of the school.

Clubs/ Extras

Our extra-curricular lessons are taken by experienced and enthusiastic teachers. We hold French and dance and yoga within the school day. After School we host weekly Spanish, Art and Nature clubs until 4:00pm. We regularly explore other club opportunities for the children. 

School trips

We seek to involve the children in our vibrant community. The school arranges for all classes to visit the local library and other places of educational interest. Recent visits include, the Ladbroke Grove fire station, classical music concerts and friendly local businesses.


Many parents contribute to the both class and school by reading, cooking for example, and sharing their knowledge. The Parents at Ladbroke Square – PALS, act as parent/school liaisons and provide a focal point for social events and charity fundraising.
