Nightingale 1 Montessori in Clapham

Nightingale 1 Montessori Nursery School is at St Luke's Church Hall on Ramsden Road, Balham (SW12 8RQ).

The nursery has three classrooms: Bluebell, Lower and Upper Daisy classes and a large enclosed garden.

The indoor and outdoor environments are carefully prepared to provide activities and equipment to stimulate learning whilst developing concentration, independence, confidence and creativity. All our teachers are Montessori trained and have a wealth of experience and therefore able to use the apparatus precisely to the best advantage.

Our discipline is gentle and positive, our ultimate aim being to foster the children's own self-discipline as well as the independence to make their own choices at learn at their own pace.

We aim to instil a real love of books and reading for pleasure. All three classrooms have a comfortable and welcoming book corner with a wide array of books. We read books with children on daily basis. Parents and grandparents are encoraged to join us at the nursery and read to the children. We welcome the local librarian's visits once a month where they introduce new books and read a story to the children. We have also introduced visits by children's authors which have proved to be a very succesful.

The extra curricular activities are delivered by highly qualified teachers and the cost of the lessons are included in the fees:

Music - Lucy Sparkles & Friends

French - Le Club Tricolore

Football - Little Kickers

Ballet and Dance - Ballet Better Limited (Lucy Clay)
