We run holiday camps in the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays plus a week in the October half term. These are held at the nursery school with similar hours to the above and cater for 2 - 8 year olds. Please see the holiday camp tab for more information.


Please do get in contact if you would like fee information.  We accept 15 and 30 hour 2, 3 & 4 year old funding.


The nursery school is situated on the ground floor of privately owned house in a quiet street. Each year group, with a staff ratio of 1:6, has a bright, well equipped classroom with open access to a large garden.


Ruth Oates is the head of the Southfields branch.  The last 30 years have been spent running nursery schools, supported by a superb team of qualified and dedicated staff. 


The aim of Melrose House Nursery Schools is to encourage the development of happy, confident children in a secure and stimulating environment.  Each day a range of activities is covered to enhance the intellectual, physical and social development of each child. We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage which is organised into seven areas of learning:

  • Personal, Social and Emotional Development;
  • Communication and Language;
  • Physical Development;
  • Literacy;
  • Mathematics;
  • Understanding the World;
  • Expressive Arts and Design.


The majority of the learning is done through group play and fun activities.  We also pride ourselves on the one:one tuition each child receives daily at Melrose House.  We have excellent staff:child rates and highly qualified staff. Individual tuition is given to each child in order that their progress is encouraged and monitored, preparing the children for their next schools.  One member of staff is allocated to each child to be in charge of the child's progress and learning.


Places are offered a year prior to the start date and are allocated in strict date order of registration.  After this, places are given out as and when they become available.


Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
