Triangle Nursery School

Triangle Nursery School, Clapham Crescent, SW4 7JQ

Triangle is a small Nursery School that offers places to children aged 2.5 to 4 years old. Set back from Clapham High Street, we are a busy and popular school. Teachers and Key Persons support children in exploring their interests and help them to develop across all areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum. We believe play is the best way to explore new ideas and proudly share new learning opportunities with each other. We foster a love of books and stories and provide children with every opportunity to succeed, no matter how small the steps of progress may be. We offer a fully inclusive environment for children to explore, including a green and well resourced outdoor garden and a large classroom where lots of different interests can be developed. .

We offer a range of support to ensure every child has access to a rich learning environment. Some of the resources we use are music therapy sessions, the use of a sensory room, weekly natural thinkers outdoor learning opportunities and regular visits to the local area to expand upon children's learning.
Triangle is one school in a federation of three with Holmewood and Maytree  Nursery Schools.  Both of these schools have Children's Centres which are a wonderful resource for parents/carers and their children from pre-birth right through to primary school.   These facilities are open to everyone in the local community.  We work very closely with parents and carers to ensure that a child develops to their full potential. Coffee mornings and parent workshops are held often to enable learning to continue at home.

As a local authority nursery school we offer free education places for children who are 3 and 4 years old.  Parents can pay to extend their child’s hours. Some 2 year olds can also come to Triangle under the Early Learning Offer. We also offer places to families that are not eligible for a funded place, where parents pay for the place. We also offer holiday provision for children aged up to 8 years old. This is based at Maytree Nursery School.

Holmewood Nursery school is situated in Central Lambeth, off Brixton Hill.  The school is located in a densely populated area of contrasting households in terms of culture, ethnicity, and socio-economic status.


Holmewood provides education for children in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), with 95 full time equivalent places in the main nursery (2 - 4 year olds) and 12 full time equivalent places in the two year old provision.  The school's intake is very culturally diverse with a high percentage of children from mixed, or Black-British / Caribbean / African backgrounds. Nearly half of the children speak English as an additional language, with many at the early stages of learning English.


Holmewood is federated with Maytree and Triangle Nursery Schools.  As a Federated Nursery School, Holmewood is led by an Executive Head Teacher, Head of School and teachers working with other qualified early years practitioners. Holmewood offers highly inclusive education with qualified and caring staff.  It has rich and varied indoor and outdoor learning environments that allow children to play and be active in developing and acquiring new skills and knowledge; children are well motivated and are thoroughly absorbed in their learning.


They are encouraged to experiment and explore and children are very well challenged to enable them to take risks safely and develop their own problem solving skills. Outdoor learning is supported through the Natural Thinkers curriculum and an extensive allotment.


Each child is allocated a Key Person, one of our skilled early years educators or teachers. They get to know the children in their group very well and work in collaboration with their parents. Teachers and practitioners support, encourage and facilitate learning opportunities so that children are happy, confident and independent learners.


All teachers and practitioners have a thorough understanding of children’s early learning and development and the early years foundation stage and understand the importance of working together with parents and other professionals.


At Holmewood, we believe in investing in professional development and bespoke training to meet individual needs so that all teachers and practitioners feel motivated and committed to the continuing success of the school.


Visits to the school can be arranged by contacting the school office.
