Clapham Bilingual French nursery

Raphael Nursery is located in Clapham South at the edge of Abbeville village and close to Balham. We open our doors to children aged between 3 months and 5 years old. 

The nursery usually opens 51 weeks a year from 7.30am to 6.30pm. During this COVID-19 period, we are exceptionally open from 8am to 6pm. We provide you with an update on your child’s day when you pick up them up from 4pm- 6.30pm.

Potential parents are welcomed to book an appointment to visit and tour the nursery. So please do not hesitate to send an email at contact@raphaelnursery.com.

Raphael Nursery welcomes every family in the community from Clapham, Balham or from further areas. We indeed offer full-time or part-time child care. The waiting list operates on a first-come-first-served basis, with priority for siblings. 

Our curriculum combines  bilingualism and Montessori. With the wealth of experience from our team teaching in French and the Montessori pedagogy, we have thus created a unique environment. As a result, it enables children of various ages and cultural backgrounds to achieve their true potential.
