About Us

Our beginning and background

St. Michael’s Montessori Nursery School has been established for over thirty years and was registered under the present owner in 2000. It operates from St. Michael’s and All Angels Church Hall in Barnes in the London borough of Richmond upon Thames and serves the local area.

The school is a member of the London borough of Richmond upon Thames Early Years Partnership and is inspected and approved by Ofsted. It is currently registered for a maximum of 50 children aged 2 1/2 - 5 years. The nursery school supports children with learning difficulties and disabilities as well as children with English as an additional language.

We have a high staff to child ratio, which allows for children to have much more indiviual attention.

The school opens five days a week during term time from 9.15am - 12.30pm with the playgroup, Little St. Michael’s open on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 1.00pm - 3.00pm.


Our Staff

Children in St Michael's

Proprietor/Head Teacher: Debbie Goldberg

Debbie Goldberg leads a team of Montessori trained teachers who serve as role models and provide a link between the individual child and the prepared environment. They guide, support and facilitate children’s own efforts and observe and record their progress. In addition to the Montessori curriculum, specialist tuition is given in Music, Art, Drama & Movement and foreign languages.

Our aim

Our objective is to offer a Montessori education that provides a range of experience that will stimulate a child’s love of learning and discovery. We aim to ensure that each child has a positive and enjoyable introduction to school and strive to provide a holistic education in a safe, secure and child-centred environment providing for all areas of your child’s development.


Whilst this website aims to provide a comprehensive guide to St. Michael’s, we prefer direct contact with parents so that we can discuss each child’s individual needs. Please contact us at info@stmichaelsmontessori.co.uk.
