A word from Charlotte de Lacey, Senior Manager & Director.

Welcome to The Osterley de Lacey Day Nursery! My name is Charlotte de Lacey, I am an Early Years Professional and a qualified Montessori teacher, with nearly 20 years experience, so the Montessori method and philosophy is deeply ingrained in me and my ethos – it comes through into what your child will learn and benefit from while they are here at nursery with us every day.

I have owned and managed nurseries here in Hounslow since 2009, starting with The de Lacey Montessori School in Isleworth, which I took over from my mum, Sylvia, who started the nursery in our family home way back in 1982, so we really are a family business and we really do offer that family, homely feeling for you and your child. We opened our first Day Nursery, down the road on North Hyde Lane in 2017, and another Pre-School in Bedfont in 2019, and are now very excited to bring you our latest venture in beautiful Osterley. You can find out more about our existing nurseries at

We want to offer your child the best possible springboard into their education – Montessori based play and learning, building up the key skills they need to start school in the strongest position to succeed, and all in a loving and caring environment. We are proud of our Montessori educational approach and are excited to share it with you.

I look forward to meeting you and to welcoming you into our little family very soon. v
