About Us


Blackheath Montessori Centre was established in 1979 as a registered charity, taking over from a private nursery school which had been operating for many years at this site.

We recently celebrated our 40th anniversary.

We are based in the heart of Blackheath Village tucked down a quiet private road; we are close to great transport links which include buses and trains.

Children join us from two years and nine months and leave before their fifth birthday. We have three classrooms which are mixed with children of different ages and abilities. Our teaching method is child-led, so the children are free to choose activities that interest them and the teachers are there to support and guide them.

We offer the children the opportunity to enjoy extra-curricular activities during their week, including music, dance, sports and French classes.

The Centre is open all year round including the summer; we only close for one week at Christmas, one week for three half terms spread out over the year, bank holidays and staff training days.

The Centre's opening hours are 8am to 6pm.

During our latest Ofsted inspection in March 2020, Ofsted awarded Blackheath Montessori Centre the following grades:

Overall effectiveness: Good

The quality of education: Outstanding

Behaviour and attitudes: Outstanding
