Welcome to Clyde Nursery School

TES Awards 2018: Shortlisted for the Best Early Years Setting in UK

Where families and children learn together 

Clyde is an outstanding Nursery school and Children's Centre in Deptford, serving a multicultural and diverse area.

It offers children and their families a friendly and inclusive environment in which children are free to explore, learn and grow into independent learners.

Our philosophy is that play is the natural way for children to learn about the environment that surrounds them.

We offer a varied, balanced and rich curriculum which enable children to develop the skills they need for life-long learning and achievement.




Message for the day

We believe that children learn with their bodies and part of the curriculum takes place in our beautiful garden, which encourages the children to be active, and generates enthusiasm for learning new skills and interests. With us they gain firm foundations for their future learning and development. Rated by Ofsted in 2013 and 2017 as outstanding…. "Clyde nursery school is outstanding." Please

Ofsted Outstanding

Ofsted Outstanding School 2013-2014

“Children make accelerated progress in their personal, social and emotional development. They settle very quickly because of the way adults tailor support to help each child to adjust to the nursery. Small-group work, for example ‘What's in the box’ activities where children learn to manage their feelings and control their behaviour, take turns and listen to each other, helps social skills to develop quickly. Staff, through their own positive relationships and kindness, model ways to show children how to respect others.”
