Learning Stars Montessori aims to be a facility that is always providing the highest quality of care for children, and early years education. Since September 2017, we have begun our journey into establishing Learning Stars into a Nature School, where we are incorporating Forest School and Reggio Emilia philosophies into our daily Montessori practice
Learning Stars is a new state of the art nursery, which opened in May 2016. The nursery is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Wembley, rumored to once belong to Sir Ian Watkins, who was one of the great visionaries of his time and chief engineer of the Metropolitan Line. Our team has worked hard to fully restore and upgrade the Victorian era house, to transform the building to embrace modern technologies, but retain the character of its history, and to create a warm, welcoming
and inclusive space for babies, toddlers and children up to the age of six years.
Learning Stars’ intentions for our building is to make it an Eco-House. We have placed great efforts in upgrading the building with environmentally friendly, natural and recycled materials, and investing in renewable energies such as a Ground Source Heat Pump to supply all our heating and hot water. We will also be investing in solar panels and some green roof space. The Eco-House will not only be a positive environment for children to grow, but make them participants at an early age for our shared role in protecting the environment and supporting the government’s initiatives in reducing our carbon footprint (Policy Energy Efficiency in Building
Our wish is that Learning Stars will provide a second home for the children to thrive in, and will nurture their development holistically, through the child-led principles of Montessori. Being a Montessori setting, children with any specific difficulties in their background or learning are welcome to join the Learning Stars Family. The Montessori approach promotes an inclusive method for catering Special Educational Needs (SEN) learners.
