"The best classroom and the richest cupboard is roofed only by the sky"
Chelwood is an ‘open air’ nursery school in the heart of Brockley!
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.
