Offering the Best in Childcare
Oak Lee Montessori School is a high quality setting with a wide range of session times. The founder of Oak Lee, Meera Bhogal, has used her expertise as a practitioner for 20 years holding both a Montessori Diploma and a NNEB Diploma, a Mother, and her ongoing passion for children’s health and wellbeing, to design a unique environment and create a methodology that has the Montessori ethos at its heart. She believes in embracing ALL good early years practices and learning styles to provide a rich learning environment for the Oak Lee children. She is actively involved in our settings and within the community, supporting families, as well as providing the staff team, with every opportunity to continue their professional development. She believes that a workforce that is knowledgeable and passionate about children’s welfare and education is paramount to achieving excellence.
Through years of good practice and a reputation for excellence, we have maintained close links with all of the local private schools and many of the local state schools. We work actively with families to make the transition to School seamless. We have a team who specialise in supporting parents with common childhood concerns, such as fussy eating, irregular sleep patterns, weaning and toilet training. Our team members, who have attended courses on food and nutrition for children under 5 years, offer support and advice for those families who have a child with food intolerances or allergies. We also work closely with Harrow early years and have dedicated SEND (Special Educational Needs and Disability) and safeguarding officers. We are a reflective organisation and value feedback from parents and children, together with staff, to ensure that we create an environment which is of the highest quality and beneficial to all.
