Welcome to Rainbow Montessori School, one of the foremost Montessori Junior Schools in the UK.

The Rainbow Montessori School includes two beautiful nurseries and a Junior School all situated in prime locations throughout North West London.  Our very first nursery was established by Rainbow’s founder, Linda Madden, in our West Hampstead premises in 1982 and was followed with the opening of a second nursery in Queen’s Park in 2009.

Our Junior school was launched in 1992 and is now one of the leading Montessori Junior schools in the Country. We offer a true Montessori education to children from 3 through to 12 years old. The independence and self-discipline instilled by the Montessori system of education has enabled Rainbow students to continue onto many of the most prestigious secondary schools in the country – and beyond!!
We hope you enjoy exploring our site!

  • "Rainbow Montessori School has been like an extended family to my son Oscar during the most difficult time a child could go through; that of losing a parent. My late husband, Martin Scheller, felt secure in the fact that his son's talents and emotional needs would be nurtured at Rainbow, indeed they have been!

  • I was a pupil at Rainbow Montessori from when it was first established in 1982 when I was two and a half years old until the age of seven. I am now twenty-one years of age and I am amazed and delighted at how many wonderful ways Rainbow has effected my life both then and now.
