Buttercups Chiswick Lane

Where Montessori meets Forest School

Please note, this nursery is extremely popular so we recommend registering as soon as possible. We are now also offering places for under 2 year olds.

Welcome to Buttercups Chiswick Lane. Based in bustling Chiswick, our nursery offers an oasis of calm. We are all about enjoying the outdoors with our large garden and Forest School.

This nursery was awarded Outstanding in its most recent Ofsted inspection.

Our Nursery Head Teacher Sara has been working for Buttercups for over 25 years. She is constantly looking for new ways to develop the team and the nursery and believes in building fantastic partnerships with parents.

Now taking babies!

We now have a limited number of spaces for under 2 year olds in our new baby room. This cosy space, filled with natural resources, is prefect for sensory development and exploratory play. The Montessori experience begins here, with toys designed to promote engagement and serve a learning purpose.

Great Facilities

The nursery is housed in an alpine-style lodge, nestling in Homefields Recreation Ground. The large Montessori classroom gives children lots of space to explore and play and opens onto our garden filled with fun equipment. 


At Chiswick Lane we have a revolutionary approach for our 2-5 year olds. Half the day is spent enjoying child-led learning in the dedicated Montessori classroom, filled with specialist Montessori equipment. Our Montessori teachers guide children in their chosen activities, resulting in focused, independent little learners. Read more about Montessori at Buttercups

Forest School

The other half of the day is spent enjoying the freedom of Forest School. Our mini forest is completely enclosed within the nursery grounds giving children the freedom to explore, to climb and to create their outdoor world.
Qualified Forest School Leaders show the children how to safely use tools, building their fine and gross motor skills, their confidence and teaching them how to manage risk. They also guide the children in lots of activities such as building dens or water channels which promote physical development and problem solving. The children are taught all about the plants and wildlife around them giving them a respect and understanding of nature. And, of course, they get plenty of fresh air!​ 

The beauty of our Forest School at Chiswick Lane though, is that the nursery building is close at hand meaning that we can easily retreat to safety if the weather becomes too bad and the children can enjoy hot, freshly cooked meals even whilst they're outdoors. Read more about Forest School at Buttercups

Great Team

Our qualified, caring team receive ongoing training, both on and off-site. This nurturing and development continues throughout their time with us, inspiring the level of care and education your child receives. All children are allocated a key-person when they start, someone who is committed to their well-being. The well-being of our team is also important to us. Having access to the outdoors with its sunlight and fresh air leads to better practitioners who are more energised and stress-free.

And we have a gentle settling-in process at Chiswick Lane, as we know that some children find it harder to adjust than others.
