A very warm welcome to Cator Park Montessori Preschool

Our Montessori Preschool is set in a historic pavilion at the heart of the lovely Cator Park in Beckenham. After being inspired by the wonderful start the Montessori Philosophy had given my own children, I completed the Montessori International Diploma in 2005 and established our preschool in 2006.

Today we use the Montessori method of teaching, which is based on a deep respect for children as unique individuals. We enable them to develop skills at their own pace and to stimulate new aptitudes and interests, building their confidence in their own abilities within the stimulating and happy environment we have created here at Cator Park.

Our children are free to choose, explore and enjoy learning experiences. This enables them to unfold naturally and provides them with a firm foundation for future learning.

On the pages that follow you’ll discover more about us, the Montessori methodology, our lovely location and what our parents have kindly said about the preschool.

If you would like further information about any aspect of our service, please do not hesitate to contact us.
