Raphael Nurseries are located in:
– Clapham South at the edge of Abbeville village and close to Balham.
– Hammersmith at the top of Fulham Palace Road.
We open our doors to children aged between 3 months and 5 years old.
Each nursery opens 51 weeks a year from 8am to 6pm in Hammersmith and from 7.30am to 6.30pm in Clapham. During this COVID-19 period, we are exceptionally open from 8am to 6pm in Clapham.
Potential parents are welcomed to book an appointment to visit and tour the nursery. So please do not hesitate to contact us.
Raphael Nursery welcomes every family in the local community. 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.
The network of our teachers includes talented people who share a passion for education and children.
There is a consistent rotation of French and English teachers to provide each session with a well-rounded experience. This diversity of professionals fosters a fun and educational experience for the children. Furthermore, we pride ourselves on staying updated with educational needs and requirements. All staff have the disclosure and barring service (DBS) checked, safeguarding, first aid, and food hygiene certificates. We also train them regularly on updated educational practices.
