Parent Testimonials

Below you will find a depiction of testimonials from past and current parents that have been kind enough to let us know their thoughts and experiences from Ladbroke Square.

“Deciding on a nursery for your first born can be a daunting experience. I will be forever grateful we toured this school. To paraphrase Maya Angelou, "it's not about what you do, or what you say, but how you make people feel." From the moment our journey began with the school we felt so welcomed, invested in and part of a beautiful community that truly cared about not only our son, but us as parents too.”

"This is an exceptional nursery and also a wonderful and welcoming community. My son has been at the nursery for two years and my daughter will commence soon - we will have to keep having children so we don't have to leave!"

“ Ladbroke Square Montessori School is a happy and calm place. If one enters the classroom in the middle of the day one sees engaged children playing, exploring and learning in a peaceful and loving environment.“

"Living in Notting Hill, you’re spoiled for choice of nurseries. I toured every one and my decision was easy. Being in Ladbroke Square Montessori feels like a warm hug. You can literally feel the joy exuding from the place. The children are engaged and thoughtful and most importantly thrilled to be there. The school truly puts children first. Offering every child a morning spot is a perfect example of this since most children are still napping when they start nursery. The lovely garden in the back and weekly visits to the gorgeous Ladbroke Square are two amazing perks. My daughter is actually disappointed on weekends because she is not going to nursery. She’s learned key skills and is set up for success to have a smooth transition to reception. I have made lifelong friends there as well as my children. I have now sent 2 children to nursery at Ladbroke Square. Best decision I ever made. It’s such a special place."

“The well-qualified staff have a good understanding of how children learn. The support for children’s early mathematical skills is a particular strength of the staff team. Consequently, children’s progress in mathematics is often better than good, relative to their capabilities and starting points.” Ofsted 2016

The child is both a hope and promise for mankind.
