Phileas Fox Nursery School offers a unique learning experience for children aged 12 months to five years. We are distinctive in offering traditional British Early Years education with a choice of learning either Chinese, Russian or French language and culture. Other languages can be added to the curriculum based on demand. 

We offer everything you would expect from an outstanding nursery school such as excellent standard of daily care and education, a nurturing and safe environment with well-maintained premises and outdoor areas. 

Our ethos is to provide a happy medium between teaching the children academically and holistically, in a playful, fun, caring and educational environment.   

Phileas Fox Nursery School is positioned in a beautiful location in the heart of Little Venice. In addition to the school’s own outside space, we benefit from being located within a park garden which we can access with the children daily. 

Our classrooms are fully equipped with high quality resources that support children’s learning and development. Opportunities for creative activities are available as well as construction, literacy, mathematical and physical play. There are areas within the classrooms where children can find time to relax and enjoy self-selected activities.

Teachers ensure that the environment is stimulating and offers opportunities for purposeful participation to promote a love of learning. Children are encouraged to be independent in their self-care and bathroom areas are attached to the rooms in order to promote this. The school has a number of smaller rooms which can be dedicated for meal times and rest times as required, as well as small group or individual language activities.
