School History | Ladbroke Square

School History

Ladbroke Square Montessori was first opened in the 1940s and has a rich history with direct ties back to Dr. Maria Montessori. It was set up by two women, one of whom studied with Maria Montessori herself. Since then, it has maintained its strong links with Montessori.

The school is located on Ladbroke Square in a converted Victorian house with classrooms spread across 4 floors. Our aim is to provide children with strong learning foundations that will support their future education and personal development into adulthood. Each floor reveals one of 4 bright and large classrooms, busy with children wearing blue or red gingham smocks.

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

From one of our carefully, curated Montessori classrooms the children will explore and socialise within the safety and security of a converted home. Outside, the children happily explore our renovated 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 confidence, independence and a sense of wonder.
