Established for over 30 years, 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 traditionally trained and follow the EYFS 7 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.
