About Our Schools

Rocks Lane Montessori has 2 schools, in Chiswick and Barnes, both in beautiful environments surrounded by nature. We are a passionate team of Montessori-qualified teachers, dedicated to providing the best possible learning environment for children from the ages of 2 years old until their reception year of Primary School. Children join us for a morning or afternoon session throughout the autumn, spring and summer terms, with older children able to stay for the full day.

Our Chiswick School is located in a bright and beautiful classroom next to the main pavilion of Rocks Lane Multi-Sports Centre, with doors directly on to our private garden. In the middle of Chiswick Common, we benefit from fresh air, nature and green space so valuable for London schools, as well as fantastic transport links for working parents.

Our Barnes School is located in a purpose built room above the main pavilion of Rocks Lane Multi-Sports Centre, surrounded by Barnes wetlands and common land.

Our teaching follows the Montessori approach, which is based on the innate potential and wonderful spirit of each child. We aim to nurture a child’s confidence, independence and curiosity for their world, and to prepare each child for the transition to school. Our classrooms are an ever-changing treasure trove of materials that children are instinctively drawn towards, structured into a core curriculum that supports each area of a child’s development. We focus on extra-curricular activities, including mini-multi sports, art, music, yoga and forest schooling.

Our most important asset, beyond the setting and the equipment provided, are our teachers. Each teacher is experienced and passionate, teaching with joy in being able to play this important role in the lives of the children who are learning with us.
