Prima Montessori Day Nursery & Pre-School

Welcome to the Prima Montessori Day Nursery & Pre-School.  Our wonderful nursery is a warm and welcoming environment for children to have lots of fun and learn.

We want children to have wonderful and inspiring learning experiences whilst in our care, so when it’s time to take the next step in the journey of education and life, they take with them lovely memories of their time with us.


  • The nursery is located on the Elm Court Estate, close to Capstone Farm Country Park and Hempstead Valley shopping park.
  • There are rail links at nearby Chatham railway station (4 miles from the nursery)
  • We are located in a retail estate with parking spaces directly outside the nursery, perfect for drop off/pick up.

What our parents say…

We love getting letters, emails and feedback from our parents!

Here’s just a few we’ve received this year:-

“A Mother’s Poem.  For all your patience day to day…for every tear you wipe away.  For little hands you gently hold, and all the stories you have told.  For your consoling tender heart and all the wisdom you impart.  For silly songs and quiet times, for peaceful naps and nursery rhymes.  For teaching children how to share, for being kind and being fair.  For every shoe that you have tied, and thoughtful words that instil pride.  For all the sweet things that you do, to help the children all year through.  For being there in place of me…I’m grateful…and I will always be!”

“Thank you for looking after our son for the last 4 years, he has had the most amazing time!  He has made so many friends in the children and the staff and there is always a smile to welcome him.  Leaving him whilst we both worked has been made so much easier, it is such a caring, nurturing, family environment.  Thank you all, we will miss you!”

“We’ve known since the beginning of our daughter’s journey.  Anyone can see you love your job and love the children.  You are like their Auntie and immediately make them feel safe, cared for and loved and as a parent it means so much to know we are leaving our child in this environment”.

“Thank you so much for giving our son the best start in life.  He has loved every minute and we are all so sad to say goodbye.  Thank you all so much for all your hard work in providing a safe place for the children during Covid, you have all been amazing!”

The Montessori Ethos

At Prima Montessori, your child’s days are filled with a rich and varied curriculum.  Our teachers have been carefully trained to ensure that the exciting and productive experience of Montessori learning unfolds for each child in the nursery.  The Montessori curriculum is divided into five core areas of study: practical life, sensorial, mathematics, language and cultural.
