Welcome to Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School

Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School mission is to provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where our children grow and learn through creative play. Our multi-age classrooms foster independence, whist our broad curriculum encourages responsibility and respect. All of our dedicated team of staff help to guide each child at their own pace.

Founded in 1997, we have an excellent reputation for delivering a progressive and inspirational method of education for babies and children, aged from 3 months to 5 years.

What Our Parents Say

“ We were looking for a nursery for our son and it was a struggle. We walked into this place and instantly liked it. The staff were knowledgeable and calm, the place was clean and safe. When I saw my son smiling as he looked around the rooms, it became an easy choice! Best 5 years of his life! ”

What can we say but we are beyond impressed with the staff’s ability to connect with our daughter and their overall high level of involvement in her development process. We can’t say enough great things about this nursery... Truly a hidden gem for those looking for a wonderful nursery experience for their little ones. ”
