...where to begin


Our tailored room, where children from 30 months old up to 5 years old embark on a journey of holistic development.

Our curriculum is rooted in the Montessori approach, seamlessly integrating with the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) framework, tailored to each child’s unique interests and abilities.

In our diverse preschool environment, children learn alongside peers of varying ages, fostering a sense of mutual support and community known as vertical learning. This dynamic promotes resilience, patience, and tolerance as children navigate their learning journey at their own pace. Upon joining Blue Butterflies, each child is paired with a dedicated Key Person who guides their physical and intellectual growth. Emphasising exploration and self-reliance, our educators act as facilitators, providing individual or group presentations based on each child’s developmental stage.

Our classrooms radiate a nurturing atmosphere akin to home, encouraging children to engage in practical life activities such as food preparation, setting tables, and caring for their environment. These activities lay the groundwork for later academic skills in areas like writing and mathematics.

Additionally, we offer rolling snack in the morning and evening, empowering children to make choices and serve themselves, promoting individual liberty and independence. This approach not only fosters confidence and self-esteem but also enhances motor skills and self-help abilities, minimising idle time and maximising learning opportunities.

Join us at Blue Butterflies, where every child is supported in their journey towards independence, curiosity, and lifelong learning.

“Education is a natural process carried out by the child and is not acquired by listening to words but by experiences in the environment.”

Dr Maria Montessori

Peace education shines as a beacon of our philosophy. Within our vibrant classroom, we embrace the transformative program ‘Honouring the Light of the Child’ by Sonnie McFarland, igniting a journey of self-discovery and harmonious interactions.

Step into our peace corner, where children embark on a voyage of conflict resolution through peaceful means, paving the way for wiser choices in the future. Through engaging activities, we cultivate respectful social skills, emotional intelligence, and self-confidence, fostering a community where kindness reigns supreme.

In the realm of Montessori, learning unfolds organically, empowering children to blossom in independence. Here, mistakes are not setbacks but stepping stones to growth. Instead of mere correction, we offer guidance and observation, nurturing resilience, and courage to embrace new experiences fearlessly.

Our classroom brims with endless possibilities, from interactive ICT equipment to imaginative role-play corners and captivating science experiments. Physical development is nurtured through daily exercises, strengthening gross motor skills and coordination, while external extracurricular activities expand horizons and deepen understanding of the world.

With seven education areas meticulously designed, our curriculum is rich with Montessori materials, fostering holistic development in every child. As they prepare to transition to ‘Big School’, our comprehensive approach ensures a seamless journey, instilling a sense of safety, confidence, and readiness to embrace learning.

At Blue Butterfly Montessori, we champion a collaborative partnership with families and schools, equipping children with essential skills that resonate throughout their educational voyage and beyond, empowering them for a lifetime of success.

Join us, and let’s embark on this remarkable journey together!

Parent Testimonials

I have worked with Blue Butterfly Stanmore for 3 years. It's the best nursery in Stanmore. Child care and safe guarding are their top most priority. Resources and lesson plans in preschool are very well planned, and children are given holistic education. Management is very active and understanding. They listen kindly and give positive and constructive feedback. Staff is selected carefully and trained thoroughly to match their Ethos. The chef makes exceptional food, catering to everyone's need. They have a lovely garden with outstanding resources throughout the nursery. They also have unique feature, which is their well equipped library. Staff have chill room where they can relax and a dining room with all necessary equipment like fridge, microwave, kettle etc. My direct manager, Ms. Carol, was exceptional in her role as a manager. Overall, I have fond memories of working here, even from hard days.This place gives you a lot of opportunities to grow and learn. They have policy to promote from within. Thank you.

Blue Butterfly Montessori Nursery in Pinner has been a lovely place to work for the past 2.5 years - having recently left due to personal circumstances. The management team operate a true open door policy, value every team member, and place the highest importance on recruiting high quality staff members to care for the children. It’s clear that every staff member is passionate and dedicated to the children’s development and wellbeing. The children are generally very happy and their individual needs valued and cared for - including having staff who are very experienced and knowledgable about Special Educational Needs/providing specific training opportunities. I would highly recommend Blue Butterfly Montessori Pinner to any families looking for childcare or practitioners looking for their next position!Thank you for all the support I have received whilst part of the BBM family, and I hope to visit soon!

Excellent nursery. Staff are very well trained. We have noticed the significant improvement Blue Butterfly has had on our daughter both in confidence and vocabulary. She has been attending since January 2016. Our preference would be for Blue Butterfly to open earlier than 8am (even by 15 minutes). We recommend this nursery highly.
