Welcome to Forest Hill Montessori

Forest Hill Montessori is a private day care nursery situated in Forest Hill, London. The Nursery is perfectly positioned for both local residents and commuters.

We are open from 7:30am – 6:30pm caring for children from three months to five years. 

Our philosophy is that every child we care for deserves a calm, caring, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn.

We adhere to our registration on the Ofsted Early Years Register. This monitors the overall quality standards of the early years provision in line with the principles and requirements of the ‘Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage’.


Our main aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can learn through play.


Your first settling in sessions will give you and your child an opportunity to get to know your child’s key person.


We offer daily opportunities for learning outdoors, giving children the freedom to explore, develop and learn.


Our menus are designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.

“My daughter has flourished in the attentive and caring atmosphere provided for her here.”

“My son has been at Forest Hill Montessori nursery for over 3 years. During that time he has made huge progress in both social and academic areas of learning.”
