Spotlight on Nurseries: Visit to Marmalade Duck

By 7th March 2022 No Comments

The first of Rozzy Hyslop’s excellent nurseries to open up north of the River, Marmalade Duck opened in 2021. Rozzy has a great following south of the river with early registration needed for the very popular Marmlade Cat (opened in 2004), Marmalade Caterpillar, Marmalade Owl and Marmalade Bear. Marmalade Duck is located in Chelsea within St Barnabas church hall. The nursery benefits from a large open plan classroom with plenty of space to incorporate all seven areas of learning. There is also two further learning spaces for group work and a lovely, grassy outdoor play area. Rozzy is hugely experienced in how young children learn and incorporates elements of Montesssori as well as the EYFS curriculum. The marmalade chain of nursery schools are known for getting the best out of all the children attending with a strong record for competitive 4+ assessment results within her south London nurseries. Rozzy herself is an experienced early years teacher and has a specialism in supporting children with Special Educational Needs (SEN).


The most recent addition, Marmalade Hedgehog, is located in Fulham and opened it’s doors in 2022. The nursery has taken over from Bishops Park Montessori and benefits from lots of fantastic outdoor space.
