"We aim to provide a fun, happy and secure environment in which your child can develop at his/her own pace. Marmalade Schools want to give your child the very best nursery education. A child should be happy, confident, challenged and able to reach their potential with us academically, physically, socially and emotionally."

The Marmalade Schools are a small Group of Ofsted Outstanding Nurseries in South West and West London. The Principal, Miss Rozzy, trained as a primary teacher at Exeter University, has a degree in Special Needs and has also been awarded the Early Years Professional Status (EYPS). Miss Rozzy started teaching in 1989 and has taught in the maintained sector and at Finton House in Wandsworth. She started working in the early years sector in 1997 after the birth of her first two children. The Marmalade Cat was founded in 2003 for Miss Rozzy's third child, Orlando. There are 5 other schools the Marmalade Caterpillar in Balham, the Marmalade Bear in Wandsworth, the Marmalade Owl by Clapham South, the Marmalade Duck in Kensington and the Marmalade Hedgehog (previously the Bishop's Park Montesorri School) in Fulham. 5 of the schools are rated Outstanding by Ofsted and Marmalade Duck has yet to be inspected.
Miss Rozzy is also chair of Wandsworth Independent Nursery Association (WINA) and is on the Early Years Partnership at Wandsworth Borough Council. She is also a member of the Schools Forum in Wandsworth. Miss Rozzy has lived in London since 1990 and has built up excellent links with local schools in South West and West London. Miss Rozzy is passionate about early years and aims to support parents fully through the start of their children's education. Marmalade Schools are inclusive of all families, traditional and non-traditional. We support families who have English as a second language and those who have disabilities.
Children are taught by qualified and experienced staff and are taken between the ages of 2 to 5 years. The Marmalade Schools are nursery schools with two separate daily sessions. The Lunch Bunch session is for the rising fours. Children are divided into their academic year groups. The rising threes are called Caterpillars, Cubs, Owlets, Ducklings, Hoglets and Kittens, and the rising fours are called the Butterflies, Bears, Owls, Ducks, Hedgehogs and Cats.
