About the employer

Giving back to the community In 2011, CMN started its journey with the opening of its first Montessori Nursery in Ealing Green in the heart of the London Borough of Ealing. Our second branch was opened after a few years, just a few miles away. We feel very fortunate to have been presented with the opportunity to help serve the local families of Ealing by providing exemplary childcare for their babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. In return we have made cherished, long-lasting relationships with them. We believe in giving back to our local Ealing community and hope to return the trust and love they have bestowed on us for over a decade. We trust that small steps have the power of making big changes! As it is well said in Chinese proverb, “A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step.”
