Welcome to Clyde Nursery School

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

Where families and children learn together 

We are an outstanding Maintained Nursery School between Greenwich and Surrey Quays in the London Borough of Lewisham. We offer 15 and 30 hour places to 2, 3 and 4 year olds. We also offer breakfast club, afterschool club, additional hours and school lunch. Please contact us if you are interested to find out more.

Nursery school may be the first time your child has a chance to explore the world without you – at Clyde we provide a happy purposeful environment full of opportunities to learn and make friends. 

We deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum – designed by the government to give each child the best start when they join formal school. Ofsted rated us Outstanding in 2013, 2017 and 2022. We work hard to make sure each child achieves to the best of their potential.

We understand that parents have different responsibilities and try to be as flexible as we can in how you use your 15 or 30 hour free nursery entitlement. Many parents have child minders that pick children up from nursery so they can spend the end of the day somewhere a little more homely and have a rest after a busy day at nursery.

Welcome message

Welcome to Clyde!

Our philosophy is that children learn best when they are supported and enabled to explore, investigate and develop their ideas and thinking.

Clyde provides children with the opportunity to grow into confident and active learners, and equips them with the skills they will need for the next stage of their education journey.

If you would like to talk to us about a place for your child or to find out about what is on offer at Clyde, please call 0208 692 3653 or email us at

We look forward to seeing you soon.

The survey can be completed at any time; you don’t have to wait until our school is being inspected. OFSTED will use the information you provide when making decisions about which schools to inspect and when. Click to register and complete a survey to help our school improve. This survey is not designed to receive complaints about our school. If you wish to make a complaint or have a serious concern about the school, you can find more information under the Policies section.

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.”
