Raphael Nursery is a French Montessori Bilingual Nursery that provides core values of individual development. It is situated in Clapham and close to Balham. We provide a living culture and creative exploration through the eyes of the child guided by his or her teacher in the nursery. This ideology is cultivated through the Montessori methods and linguistic arts. We prepare a child to excel in their foundation years, so they can move through life with a strong ability to achieve excellence.
Your child’s early years are vital. It is the foundation for thinking, language, vision, attitudes, aptitudes, and other characteristic. This is the perfect time for foreign languages to be introduced to children. Our teachers in the nursery are French and English. These foundation years are ideal for a teacher to guide a child’s willingness and ability to learn. In our nursery, bilingualism helps children to make sense of the world around them and to discover the excitement of communication.

Montessori is a dynamic international education platform. This method created by Maria Montessori is always up-to-date because of the continuous observation and tailored approach of meeting each child’s needs. When physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional needs are met children grow with excitement.

High level of academic achievement is a natural outcome in most Montessori schools and nurseries because of the supportive environment. All children are born with a curiosity and keenness to discover new things. They are eager to try and develop new skills in the world around them. By combining Montessori method and early teaching of a foreign language, each child is equipped with the right tools to thrive in their development.
