West Ealing Montessori Nursery (Bilingual French)

About us

West Ealing Montessori Nursery is the only French Bilingual Montessori nursery situated in West Ealing. The nursery cares for children aged from 3 months to 5 years old. It is part of Creative Minds Nurseries Ltd.

Our approach

Our nursery teachers use the Montessori approach within the framework provided by the compulsory Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum.  The two approaches complement each other to provide a rich and varied diet of learning activities to promote both the academic and social/emotional development of young children.

In addition the nursery follows French curriculum with some of our staff being French native in order for children to successfully access local private and independent, French or international schools at the “Moyenne” or “Grande Section” of the French system.

 Children make daily use of both indoor and outdoor educational facilities. Their individual needs are monitored through our key worker support system and parents receive regular feedback on their child’s progress.  You will be seen as the key partner in this process and will be given regular opportunities to contribute.

Our opening times

Our opening hours are from 8.30am till 5.30pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am till 5.00pm on Friday, 50 weeks in a year. On Friday nursery closes at 5pm for Synagogue’s use.  There is facility for an early start from 8am and late pick up at 6pm, Monday to Thursday, with a minimal charge. The nursery will be closed for 2 weeks during Christmas period, fees are not payable for this period. All sessions are carefully planned with clear learning outcomes aimed at catering for the individual needs of the child.

Food and Drink

Nursery provides for freshly cooked healthy meals for Breakfast, Snack, Lunch and tea. We cater to vegetarian requirements of the children with only fish (no shell fish) provided as non-vegetarian alternative. Our highly acclaimed menu was created by Nutritional Therapust Gabrielle Looney. Please see our Food and Drink Policy for further details.
