Description:

Happy Days Montessori School was founded in 1990 by Margaret Dillane and was the first Montessori School to be opened in Wembley and the surrounding area.  Happy Days has flourished in reputation for academic excellence and the Montessori methodology of education.  Happy Days prides itself on the application of Dr. Montessori's complete philosophy and has achieved Montessori accreditation with Montessori Education (UK).

The children in the school are aged 21/2 to 9 years old.  Many children stay with us until they are ready for Reception class; however we are permitted to teach up to the age of 9.  We tailor activities to suit the individual child and often find the children learn from working across different age groups.  Older children gain confidence and reinforce their knowledge through helping younger colleagues, and the younger children learn through watching the older ones.

Our aim is to provide a holistic, stimulating learning environment where children are free to explore their own learning in the safety and comfort of a small vertically grouped class where they have access to hands on experience with a variety of subjects.  We endeavour to equip your child with the most important tool for his/her future education an 'interest in learning' which we believe will last a lifetime, not just for exams.  We aim to build within your child the confidence and independence to explore their own learning and to have within them a desire to find out more, thus enabling them to become their own educators.  We strive to achieve these aims through the understanding and delivering of the Montessori ethos in its entirety.  We aim to provide solid, educational foundations within a safe, friendly, stimulating and spiritual environment where your child's self esteem, emotional, spiritual and personal development are one of our main priorities.
