The Marmalade Hedgehog is located in the Church Hall at St Etheldreda's in Cloncurry Street in Fulham. The school was previously known as the Bishop's Park Montessori Nursery School and has operated from St Etheldreda's for many years. The large hall is a great nursery space and benefits from its own dedicated outside space situated next to the hall. Miss Francesca Monti is the Head Teacher at The Marmalade Hedgehog and has been a teacher in Fulham for 11 years previously at Sinclair House.
The team at the Marmalade Hedgehog are led by Miss Francesca. The staff work with the children both collectively and individually to ensure, the work is set for each child independently allowing the child to work at its own pace.
The Marmalade Hedgehog has small class sizes to allow time for individual attention, and therefore children learn rapidly as Ofsted recently pointed out at the other Marmalade nurseries. The Marmalade Hedgehog ensures excellent communication with parents and teachers are available every day to talk if needed. The use of Tapestry and the App are great ways for the parents to be involved with the school. The school is very well resourced with new equipment to help the children to learn. The Marmalade Hedgehog shares the ethos of being an inclusive school with many different religions, races and abilities at the school. We celebrate all the different religious festivals.
Parents are involved with many of the activities and events held at the school to foster a close working relationship with our parents. We have a lot of activities for the parents to be involved with, like Grand Parents day, Parents Physical Day etc which all go to make the parents feel included and form good friendship with other parents. The Marmalade Hedgehog children all have specialist teachers in a range of additional activities such as ballet, french and physical education.
