20 Years


Indoor Activities

Hopes and Dreams Montessori Nursery School celebrates and embraces the concepts of equality and diversity. We teach the children about different religions and cultures from all parts of the world. We organise regular theme days about different countries and continents where we listen to original music, read stories, discuss traditions, prepare and sample foods, enjoy arts and crafts activities, and try to understand that diversity is an enrichment, not a hindrance. We also regularly participate in various charity events so our children learn that helping others is important and fun.

Our varied Montessori activities prepare children extremely well for their next step in education….

Extra-curricular activities

We ensure that the children have as much fun as possible and offer an additional range of activities including BalletFrench and Spanish classes for children who are 2.5 years and older. All extracurricular sessions are open to both attending and non-attending children of our Nursery School on a term time basis.

Music Sessions

We also offer weekly music sessions where children explore various musical instruments and enjoy physical movement and sensory exploration. Music sessions create a ‘rich sensory environment’ where children can listen, sing, touch and move to the rhythm.

  • Creative hands-on play
  • Learning experiences
  • A stimulating and safe environment


Outdoor Activities

We strive to educate the children about leading a healthy lifestyle and encourage them to be as physically active as possible.


Hopes and Dreams have an outside garden where children enjoy a great variety of creative and imaginative activities, such as planting, climbing and balancing, nature trails and using construction equipment. Our mud kitchen is also one of the children’s favourite areas to play, while in the garden.


There are also opportunities to learn and practice different sports, taught by a qualified sports teacher. (Weather allowing, the Sports Sessions take place in our garden).


We also organise walks to our nearby parks and excursions within the local community, including trips to the library, theatre, and swimming pool.
