The Marmalade Bear

The Marmalade Bear, formerly known as the Red Balloon, joined the Marmalade Schools in 2011. The school is situated close to Bellevue Road and Wandsworth Common Station and caters for children from 2 to 5 years old.

The Head Teacher is Miss Stacey Strickson, BA Ed Hons (with a special interest in special needs). Miss Stacey has recently taken on the headship after being a teacher at the Marmalade Cat. The School has 48 children at any one session and nine full time teachers, including 5 visiting teachers.

They aim to provide a fun, happy and secure environment in which your child can develop at his/her own pace.  The Marmalade Bear wants to give your child the very best nursery education.  A child should be happy, confident, challenged and able to reach their potential with us academically, socially and emotionally. 

Please contact the Marmalade Schools for further information.
