Established for over 30 years, The Willow Nursery School is a well-known, traditional nursery school situated at 55 Grafton Square, in the heart of Clapham Old Town.

We believe passionately in instilling a sense of confidence,
resilience and independence in each and every child and
we ensure they learn through play and enjoyment and
at their own pace.

Teachers are Montessori and NVQ 3 trained and follow the EYFS seven Areas of Learning. We also use the successful RULER Programme, building the children’s emotional intelligence by giving them the tools to understand and communicate how they feel.

Resilience in life

Resilience comes from self-belief, confidence in one’s abilities, awareness of the community around you and the emotional intelligence to cope with situations. From settling in to moving on to big school we make sure the children are armed with the right tools.
