Welcome to Northcote House Nursery and Bennerley House Pre-Prep, Clapham

Northcote House Nursery and Bennerley House Pre-Prep are a private day care Nursery and Pre-Prep. Northcote House is situated on Salcott Road with our linked Pre-Prep, Bennerley House, located on the adjacent Bennerley Road in Clapham, Northcote Road. Both are conveniently located for local residents and commuters into central London.

We are open full-time from 8:00am – 7:00pm caring for children from 3 months to 5 years.

Our philosophy is that every child we care for deserves a calm, caring, safe and stimulating environment in which to learn.

We are pleased to report that the majority of our children have now returned to Nursery following the relaxation of social distancing measures by Government.  We recognise that this is a continues to be a worrying and confusing time for parents of young children and that some of the information in the media may add to your concerns.

The Nursery is satisfied, having completed our own comprehensive risk assessment, that it is as safe as possible for our children to return and for our Nursery to remain open, but we are alert to the ongoing risks.

We have reached this conclusion after careful examination of the data at a local level, a detailed reopening plan based on advice from Public Health England (PHE) and an evaluation of the risk to our staff, based on their health and household risk factors.

The UK Chief Medical Officers have issued a statement on education and childcare reopening which states that there is a very low rate of severe disease in children from coronavirus (COVID-19).

However, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with additional information on the more localised picture.

LEARNING
Our main aim is to provide a secure and happy environment where children can learn through play.
SETTLING IN
Your first settling in sessions will give you and your child an opportunity to get to know your child’s Key Person.
OUTDOORS
We regularly offer opportunities for learning outdoors – giving children the freedom to explore and be physically active.
FOOD
Our menus are designed by the nursery chef and a paediatric dietician to meet the needs of each age group.
