CHELWOOD – An ‘Open Air’ nursery school in the heart of Brockley!

‘Excellent personalized early childhood education for every child’

  • Qualified Teacher led Curriculum
  • Research led teaching and learning
  • Stable, consistent early years staff with expertise, training and experience

Chelwood focusses on developing confident and independent children who are able to make informed choices and decisions for themselves, whilst developing a caring and considerate and responsible attitude towards other people and their environment.  We believe that the consistency provided by regular sessions and routines, a familiar and consistent peer group and staff team, are significant factors in developing these life skills.

We are now welcoming applications for September 2022 for two year and three year old places

Today and every other day, everyone at Chelwood Nursery School stand as one with our black pupils, staff, parents and the entire BAME community in condemning racism.  

We are here to support everyone, regardless of race, sexuality, gender, religion or anything else which makes you, you.
