Casa dei Bambini is an AMI accredited school located in Hampstead. The school welcomes children from two-and-a-half to six years of age.

The school is committed to each child as an individual and blossoming personalities are honoured. All the children are free to learn at their own pace. The small class size encourages strong friendships and a mixed aged group allows the older children to cement their learning and gain confidence by teaching their younger friends, who in turn view their elder peers as role models. The owner is the head teacher who is in school each day and therefore gets to know each child individually.

Mornings only or full day sessions are available. For the children who stay for lunch, hot food is brought in from an outside caterer and the children sit down to eat together with their teachers.

The school has access to a sunny, secure garden. In good weather the doors are left open and the children have access to the garden to do their work. The children visit a local park and playground twice-a-week.

The aim of the school is to ensure that all children leave as happy, rounded individuals with a love of learning and are fully prepared for the next stage in their young life.

Reviews

7.9 Casa Dei Bambini Montessori School has a Review Score of 7.9 (7.949)

The Review Score of 7.9 (maximum of 10) for Casa Dei Bambini Montessori School is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 12 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Casa Dei Bambini Montessori School in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 3.2 out of 5 from 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.741 for Casa Dei Bambini Montessori School is calculated as follows: ( (109 Excellents x 5) + (31 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 143 Ratings = 4.741

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 3.208 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Casa Dei Bambini Montessori School is based on 1 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 = 3

    2. Target of 4.8 positive Reviews (24 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 1 Reviews ÷ 4.8 Target = 0.208

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

Reviewer Connection to Casa Dei Bambini Montessori School

  • Mother of Child

My son has been attending Casa Dei Bambini since the beginning of the 2016 academic school year and LOVES it! He is eager to go each day and I've noticed his gain in confidence, independence, and he also genuinely enjoys learning. Upon first walking into the school, I noticed the calm atmosphere, which seemed rather soothing and less distracting for learning. There is a cute garden area in the front where the children can choose to do their work outdoors if they'd like (my son often talks about this). They even have planter boxes, as they have a small school garden. The staff/teachers are kind, caring, and supportive, which makes a very encouraging environment for little ones. Also, there is a sense of community among the parents, which is very welcoming. The headteacher sends weekly updates and attempts to keep us informed of the kids' learning for the week, as well as upcoming happenings. This school is seriously a hidden gem and we are so glad to be a part of Casa Dei Bambini!

We found the "Casa dei Bambini" Montessori school to be an excellent choice for our daughter: she felt welcome, taken good care of, and supported throughout her journey towards being independent.

The staff of the school applies a very true Montessori method, but there's no lack of empathy and emotional support for the kids. The room is big, clean, and tidy, and the outside space, although small, is well tendered. Activities are interesting and creative. Our daughter made friends she's still in contact with, and the parents community is very friendly and unique. Our daughter did not speak English when she started attending the school, and we believe that the individual attention and support she got really helped her overcome this potential difficulty.

I'm very fond of the Montessori method and I believe the way it is applied in the school helps the children flourish, shows them how to be a responsible member of a small community, where freedom and respect are well balanced.

My older son went to the same Montessori from October 2011 until August 2013 and had a wonderful experience, with terrific grounding and preparation for school. I therefore didn't think twice about sending my youngest son and he is equally happy despite a significant change in staff. The nursery is incredibly nurturing and by being quite small they can identify any slight problems quickly and help address them. The children get an excellent tactile and visual understanding of maths and a broad exposure to all other areas of the future curriculum.

The teachers make this nursery so special. The children are well taken care of and observed and taught with affection! We chose this nursery because we found Montessori education system is quite interesting and we wanted my son to be in the environment. Now we are quite contented not because it's a Montessori nursery but because the teachers deliver the Montessori method brilliantly and make a great community of the children.

My son has spent very happy two years at Casa Dei Bambini Montessori. We are very sad to be leaving to the reception class in September.

The staff at the school are fantastic - they go beyond just looking after the children and work really hard on developing their unique skills and personalities and the results are often very visible. The environment in the classroom is calm and peaceful and the children are all very happy.

Having had my child in a Montessori school for two years, I have become a huge fan of this method and I would really recommend a Montessori school, and in particular Casa Dei Bambini school to all parents looking for a great environment for their kids.

Montessori is that environment, other than the family environment, that can make your child feel so safe and loved, a quiet environment which gives him peace, concentration and self-motivation.

We will be grateful forever for all the care, education and love that our daughter has fulfilled from "Casa dei Bambini Montessori". Strength, self-confidence, love for friends and environment, self-discipline, freedom and much more she has gained in the most supportive and caring way. She stepped into the world of education so smoothly, challenging her to explore and learn a lifetime.

On her last days at school she was saying almost everyday: "the Manager is the best teacher in the world."

We fell in love with this nursery after our visiting and seeing the warm, intimate classroom. They help make the initial transition into the class very smooth and the Montessori experience that it offers is truly wonderful. The dedication of the four teachers can be felt and our family will certainly miss the community.
