"Give your child the essential foundations for future success and a love for learning that will last a lifetime"

Welcome to the Paddington British Private School's website . Paddington is privately owned and has been enriching the lives of children since 1989.

Paddington's picturesque storybook setting is where your child's educational journey begins...

Our unique, quaint, “one of a kind” child-appealing campus was designed with your little ones in mind, leaving the impression that school is a wonderous place of discovery.

Paddington’s advanced academic curriculum is created from aspects of the British system and is enhanced by our exceptional Fine Arts program which supports the growth of the whole child by developing both the artistic and academic side of the brain. It includes classical music, orchestra, dance, movement, visual arts, foreign languages and etiquette.

I grew up in a musical household and was introduced to classical music by my grandfather before the tender age of one and was also greatly influenced by my mother who was an Opera singer. I hold a Bachelors degree in Fine Arts and Early Childhood Education. I am Ballet Certified from the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD), Montessori trained, Childcare Director’s Credential, and a graduate of the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance.

When I began educating children, I brought my background in Fine Arts and Dance into my teachings. My vision continues to be brought to life each day, through our Fine Arts Program, as I believe that this should be an integral component of the curriculum and an essential part of the knowledge children learn during their early years. This exciting subject is included in your monthly tuition.

I encourage you to visit our school and discover the difference this delightful setting and dynamic, diverse syllabus has on your children. See how excited they are to be here in this nurturing wonderland each day!

I know you are entrusting us with a very precious gift and feel honored to play a role in your child's education. 

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me directly.


Yours sincerely,

Nicolette Hardwicke
