About Us

The pre-school was established in 2001 is situated in the grounds of Botany Bay Cricket Club and operates Monday – Friday term time only. It is a rural area allowing many opportunities to explore the outdoor environment. There is a very large enclosed car park which allows parents to accompany children into the setting without the worry of parking restrictions. It also allows parents the opportunity to speak to practitioners and network with other parents. There are 2 classrooms these are used almost exclusively by the preschool.
Staff are qualified at Level 2 and 3 and the manager has recently attained Early Years Professional Status. As well as the E.Y.F.S. we offer a Montessori curriculum and modern language class. The adult child ratio is approx. 1:4 for 2-3 year olds and 1:6 for 3-4 year olds.
There is a small outdoor play area but also extensive grounds which can be used. The pre-school is a secure and happy environment offering a supportive setting where children feel valued and happy as they go about their activities.
All children are eager to learn and gain understanding of their world. The children are encouraged to work at their own pace to fulfill their own needs. We are committed to helping children develop their self-confidence and appreciation of others. The children are encouraged to develop listening skills, where time is taken to listen to the children both in group settings and a one to one basis.

Ofsted Outstanding at Botany Bay

We are so pleased to announce that this year we once again set our sights high and managed to achieve an ‘Outstanding’ rating from Ofsted as an ‘Early Years Provider’ at our Botany Bay site – our Enfield site received an Ofsted Good rating.

This recognition is not easy to achieve and all of the staff at Right Start Montessori have shown their dedication to the children and to the nursery by working hard and going the extra mile.

As parents we know how important it is when choosing the right nursery for your children, especially the first time round. That is why we want to provide the best reassurance possible that the quality of education and the standard of care is second to none.

Right Start Montessori wants to show that whatever can be done for us to be the best we can offer a child we strive to achieve that goal.
