  • Who we are

    Plenty of space for children to play, explore and be creative

    Following the Montessori Approach to learning, in an engaging and stimulating environment.

    At Townsend Montessori Nursery in Margate, we have meticulously crafted an environment that fosters children’s connections with the world around them, themselves, and their peers. Inside our nursery, you will find three thoughtfully designed rooms, each equipped with age-appropriate resources tailored to meet the developmental needs of every child. Our outdoor area boasts a spacious and secure garden, inviting all children to embark on exciting explorations. With a climbing frame, sand and water play area, space for trike riding, and ample room to run around, the garden offers endless possibilities for outdoor fun and discovery.

    Our youngest learners embark on their journey in the Lion Cubs Room, conveniently located on the ground floor. Dedicated Key Carers diligently follow each child’s individual routines, ensuring personalized care and attention. The room is filled with engaging activities carefully planned to provide ample opportunities for exploration and enjoyment throughout the day.

    As children grow older, they transition to the Monkey’s Room, where they are encouraged to independently select their own resources and develop essential skills of self-reliance and autonomy. This environment empowers them to make choices and nurtures their growing independence.

    "Will always recommend this nursery"

    "Staff are amazing and friendly. Are always happy to chat and explain what's happening. My boy loves going and can't wait to get in on the days he attends. Will always recommend this nursery to people looking."

    "This nursery is outstanding"

    "As a family, we have used Townsend Montessori Nursery Margate over the past eight years, my youngest currently attending. In the past and present, my view of this nursery is outstanding. My children have been well cared for and each of them has thrived in this setting. We see the members of staff as family and would highly recommend to anyone."

    "The staff are very friendly and approachable"

    "Our son has been well cared for at Margate Townsend Montessori Nursery since he started in January 2021. The staff are very friendly and approachable and our son has developed a good relationship with a lot of the ladies who work there in the different rooms. The managers are good at listening to concerns and being flexible about our son's needs. They have been great at following our son's routine, which has really helped him settle into each room. The food is very well balanced nutritionally."
