Montessori-Inspired, Reggio-Based, Personalized Lessons & Care
older toddlers | 24 - 36 months | Serving London, UK
Your Toddler Learns At Their Own Pace
Your child flourishes with a unique combined Reggio and Montessori-inspired curriculum. They begin learning to make sense of their environment while also grasping the fundamentals of maths, science, and literacy via self-led, play-based activities.
Early Social-Emotional Learning Guarantees Future Success
Teachers gently encourage your child to take steps towards greater independence as they learn in collaborative group settings. Older toddlers continue building an understanding of their emotions, learning to empathise with others, and growing positive relationships.
Parents Helping Parents Fosters Community
If you have questions, concerns, or need extra resources to help your child and family thrive, contact your Parent Experience Manager; they are on hand to help. You’re valued as a part of the nursery family, and you’re treated as such.
Your Family Thrives With Extra Personal & Academic Supports:
A Happy Family Guarantee Gives You Peace Of Mind
The Happy Family Guarantee gives you 2 weeks’ settling-in time to make sure you and your child adjust to child-care. Take the time to evaluate if you and your family have made the right choice for your kids’ early education.
Your Little One Comes Home Safe & Happy
Feel confident that your child is in a safe place every day! Attentive teachers watch over your child around the clock, while limited-access entryways, tall privacy fences, and internal cameras provide extra reassurance and security.
Environmentally-Conscious Food Programme Fuels Minds & Bodies
Your toddler grows in leaps and bounds, and all that energy must come from somewhere! Healthy, delicious, and preservative-free foods fit the bill. A zero-waste kitchen decreases environmental impact and sets a positive example for future generations.
Learning Through Movement Supports Educational Success
Your child develops coordination, balance, and concentration through yoga, music, and dance. They learn resilience, turn-taking, perseverance, and the value of teamwork through non-competitive games or team sports like football.
Parent Communication App Keeps You Up-To-Date
Stay in the loop and remain part of your child’s day with a convenient parent communication app. Enjoy pictures and videos of your little one, view artwork, exchange messages with their teacher, and learn how to support learning at home.
“Good” OFSTED Rating Ensures Quality Care
Know that you made the right choice for your child’s education. A “Good” OFSTED rating exemplifies an exceptional level of care and guarantees that your precious toddler will reach quality benchmarks needed for pre-K readiness and academic success.
what parents are saying...
This nursery is simply outstanding, fantastic staff, caring, enthusiastic, my son has been at this nursery for over 1 year and he loves the setting and the staff. He has learnt so much. the setting is a true reflection of a private nursery. The staff are always exceeding expectations above all my son is in a secure, loving environment.
It’s difficult to put into words how outstanding this nursery is. Both my children have been extremely happy at Abacus Ark (3 year age gap). The love, care, fun and nurturing they give to the children is better than you could ever wish for. The teachers genuinely have fun with the children, and each child is nurtured in the way that suits them best.
Prior to Abacus Ark, I had visited a couple of schools in Maida Vale that were deemed to be the best. However, in my opinion, they did not compare to this nursery. The teachers at Abacus Ark are loving, energetic, and work extremely hard to cater to the interests and needs of each child. The teaching is of a high standard and they truly prepare all of the children for the next stage of education – primary school.
Abacus Ark is an excellent nursery. My daughter started when she just turned 1. All the staff made us feel welcome and really good. Her key teachers took time to reassure me because I was worried. My daughter never cried and knew that her teachers would take care of her with smiles and cuddles. She learned and grew a lot with Abacus Ark. She goes to the library, to the park, she has music and dancing classes and now she is a pro at football. I truly recommend this place.
We love Abacus Ark!! For parents.. the staff are amazingly organised, helpful and friendly. Luckily our son feels the same way and can't wait to go! He's progressed so much in just a few months! Can't recommend enough!
I have had both of my children go to this nursery and I'm honestly going to be so upset when they leave. Abacus Ark gives off such a wonderful, loving vibe, every child is looked after and loved like the individuals they are. They are supported by such a wonderful group of staff, with such passion for each of the children. The facilities are great - security is very reassuring and nothing is too much trouble for them. Can't recommend enough.
Our children attended Abacus Ark and we would highly recommend it. It is a very nurturing place with a very dedicated and caring team. The children have great memories from their nursery, where they evolved into confident beings and created great friendships.
My daughter has been at this nursery since 2 years ago. Her home language is not English, so she had an anxious feeling at the beginning stage. However, all the teachers of this nursery are wonderful, professional, not rude and very active with the children. My daughter has good confidence with all the teachers.
Both my daughters have been to Abacus over the last several years and we have always been delighted with every aspect of the nursery. The environment is lovely and there is plenty of outdoor activity in fine weather. The staff are amazing with children and parents and there is a real sense of the children being individually nurtured to build their skills, confidence and esteem.
Abacus Ark has become part of our extended family - seeing the broad smile of the kids when they join their peers and teachers is priceless (!!) There are three things that for me make them unique: (1) the staff, warm and full of energy (2) their support, personally to understand the challenges of rising my multilingual kids, (3) the app they use to feedback you weekly with photos and videos on your kids learning journey - sharing achievements and way to engage with them in order to extend learning at home. It's been already 2 years and so far so good!
Brilliant nursery overall, very warm and welcoming staff that builds an excellent rapport with children. Use of the web app to update parents with comments and photos is a big plus. Shame the nursery does not have its own outdoor space but compensates for this with regular trips to the nearest garden space, parks and libraries. … Overall great, especially the lovely teachers. Good management.
This is a great nursery. My two kids come here and I have been pleased. The value for money is also brilliant compared to local ones. The staff are wonderful and positive. My kids have settled in amazingly and I think this is not only down to their personalities but also how safe and welcome they feel at the nursery. … I think the initiatives with partnering with local businesses such as the gym, library visits etc is also brilliant. Overall, very well done to everyone at Abacus Ark nursery. A big thumbs up.
Excellent staff, wonderful caring environment. My son was happy and confident and always learning. He is now one of the most confident children in his new school.
I am very pleased with the education provided to my daughter. It was very wholesome, not only academic but also the arts and sports as well as etiquette and boundaries. All of the staff at Abacus Ark, Maida-Vale have always been welcoming and I would wholeheartedly recommend this nursery to anybody in or around the area.
My daughter is almost 3 years old and has been attending Abacus for the past 6 months. I cant recommend enough. The staff is so welcoming and smiling all the time. They give you great and precise feedback at the end of the day. It feels like a small family. My little one is rushing to go to nursery in the morning and I can feel the progress she has made by listening to her singing all the songs and stories she learns, colours, shapes and independent playing time as well.
