The Butterfly Preschool

Butterfly Preschool - Clapham

We are a traditional termly based preschool for children aged 2 – 5 years with holiday clubs during some term breaks.

Our aim is to engage children's ability to learn in a fun and stimulating environment. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum along with a forest school style with plenty of learning outdoors, whatever the weather!

We feed the key schools in the local area such as Thomas's Prep, Broomwood Hall, Belleville, Honeywell, Eaton House, Parkgate & Dolphin.

With fully qualified teachers and Early Years Practitioners, in a small and homely environment, we aim to create a home from home nursery.
