Georgina Hood (Thomas's Battersea)
Paint Pots Montessori Schools & Classes

Educating and Inspiring Young Minds Since 1988


Paint Pots offers Montessori Nurseries & Creative Classes in three locations across London:

  • Paint Pots The Park, Hyde Park, W2; 
  • Paint Pots The Boltons, Chelsea, SW10;
  • and Paint Pots The Grove, Notting Hill, W11 which offers year-round flexible child care from 8am-6pm on weekdays for those over 12 months.


All our schools are OFSTED registered and MEAB accredited.

A child’s first classroom experience is an important stepping stone. Our aim is to make this as happy and rewarding a step as possible. We help every child to develop confidence, self-esteem, independence, concentration, social skills and self-discipline along with strong mathematical and literacy skills in preparation for the next step in their educational journey.

Our classrooms are full of love and happiness and we are extremely proud of the bright and confident children who attend our schools and classes.

‘Paint Pots is the real deal. When you arrive, the teacher will be at eye level with your child, rather than you, to greet him or her and shake hands. As a fly on the wall during the day, you would see children busily "working" for prolonged, uninterrupted periods at activities which have been set out with their individual developmental needs in mind. At home time, your child will emerge not with a cookie-cutter Matisse-imitation collage scripted by the teachers, but with a crazy twist of paper that is apparently a dinosaur. And at home, your child will proudly pour his or her own drink and button his or her own coat, exclaiming with glee, "I learned it at school!"’

Daphne, a Paint Pots Mother




‘This is the happiest, most nurturing nursery I have come across. The staff are so caring and dedicated, helping to bring out the child's personal identity and a love of learning, empathy towards others and their imagination. I feel privileged to have been able to send my daughter to such an amazing nursery.’

‘I know that we will have fond memories of our happy days at Paint Pots, from those first wonderful classes in The Boltons, to the cheerful daily school life my daughter enjoys now.’

‘I just wanted to share something with you which makes me smile - most nights when my son goes to sleep he talks to himself before he drifts off. He says goodnight to people he loves 'bye bye Daddy, bye bye Mummy, bye bye teddy' etc and he also says 'bye bye Paint Pots!‘
