Hopes and Dreams Nursery School in Islington, London, has recently been re-accredited by the Montessori Evaluation and Accreditation Board (MEAB).

The re-accreditation was based on 2 separate visits to the Nursery School, which has been approved across the board from the age of 3 months to 5 years. Parents can be confident that Hopes and Dreams Nursery School works within the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework – MEAB commented that ‘the Montessori ethos is evident in all aspects of this exceptionally well-managed Nursery School’.

The MEAB scheme began in 2007, created by the Montessori St Nicholas Charity; seven schools have been accredited and a further twenty-two have been re-accredited recently. Hopes and Dreams Nursery School has held this accreditation since 2014, and the update is now valid until December 2021.

The Nursery School was praised for the ‘outstanding range of high-quality resources’ around the school and its emphasis on providing opportunities for creativity and critical thinking. Susan Bingham, Managing Director of the Nursery School said, “We are committed to delivering high standards of care and allowing children to excel within the Montessori education framework. We’re delighted to be re-accredited and to have our efforts across the school recognised within the report.”
