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.
