  • Who we are

    A home from home environment, located near to Northdown Park

    A light, spacious and stimulating setting for children to play, learn and explore.

    The Avenues Montessori is in the Cliftonville area of Margate. It is located within walking distance of the local library, Northdown Park and Margate beach. We pride ourselves on the excellent care we offer to children and their families. The Avenues has two exceptional, well-resourced and stimulating rooms, that have been carefully designed to enable the children to explore at their own pace. Both rooms give children the opportunity to free flow from indoors to outdoors throughout the day.

    The baby room provides a calm, nurturing and caring environment, with a variety of different age-appropriate areas to support children’s learning, development and wellbeing.

    Simple and straight-forward

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself..

    Because of this, we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit to the nursery you’re interested in.

    Contact us for more information


    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare vouchers.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.


Dedicated to providing quality care and Early Years education

''I am an extremely dedicated and passionate individual who seeks to empower and inspire my team to ensure children have the most exceptional experience during their time with us via our enabling environments and high-quality teaching. Together with our amazing families, I strongly believe we can work together to create something wonderful – a secure and safe foundation for children, providing children with the skills needed to thrive in all future endeavours."
