Twinkle Stars Montessori Nursery
Welcome to Twinkle Stars Montessori Nursery ans Pre-School, situated within Holy Trinity Church in the church rooms, conveniently positioned at Lyonsdown Road and Somerset Road in New Barnet. Since our establishment in 2015, we have been dedicated to providing a nurturing and enriching environment for children aged 2 to 5 years. As a private and independent day nursery, we are firmly grounded in the philosophy and principles of Dr. Maria Montessori's educational method, aligned with the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
At Twinkle Stars, our experienced and multilingual Montessori teachers are committed to delivering top-quality care in a safe, fun, and structured setting. We believe in fostering confidence, motivation, and self-discipline through personalized learning plans and achievable goals for each child.
Operating five days a week during term time, with the possibility of additional activity weeks during half term, our nursery offers flexible hours from 8:00 to 17:00 Monday to Friday.
Our spacious classrooms provide diverse areas for activities of everyday learning, literacy, mathematics, sensorial development, creative art expression and role-play. Upholding the Japanese shoe etiquette principle, we prioritize cleanliness and comfort, requiring outdoor shoes to be removed before entering the nursery and providing indoor shoes, ensuring a hygienic environment for indoor exploration and play.
Outdoor play is a fundamental part of our curriculum, with two delightful gardens offering various activities such as tricycles, gardening, group play, and more. We encourage hands-on experiences and creativity, promoting a holistic approach to learning.
Twinkle Stars Montessori boasts a team of highly qualified Montessori teachers with multicultural backgrounds, dedicated to providing the best possible education and care for your child. Our mission is to support parents in raising well-balanced, independent, and happy children.
We facilitate a mixed-age group environment, where children aged 2 to 5 years learn collaboratively. Younger children benefit from observing and learning from their older peers, while older children refine their skills by helping the younger ones. Additionally, we maintain a low teacher-to-child ratio, with one teacher for every four children, even for children aged 3 and above.

WHO IS MARIA MONTESSORI, AND WHY MONTESSORI?
Dr. Maria Montessori (1870 – 1952) was a trailblazer in child-centered education. Her groundbreaking research and experimentation in early childhood development laid the foundation for the Montessori philosophy, a well-respected method practiced worldwide.
Montessori education emphasizes following the child's lead, fostering independence and self-sufficiency through specially designed resources and mixed-age classrooms. Children learn by doing, repeating activities to build confidence and problem-solving skills.
Materials are carefully designed to awaken sensorial skills and encourage exploration, nurturing a love for learning from an early age. Montessori education recognizes the crucial importance of a child's early years, focusing on holistic development to prepare them for a successful future.
