The school was founded in 1964 by Miss Diana Willcocks and has been at its current location in the church hall of Holy Trinity Church, Prince Consort Road, London since 1984.
The school is owned and run by the Headmistress, Lavinia Taylor, and her fellow teachers, Louise Ward, Sarah Walker, Rosa Rego Dias and Jennifer Robbins. The Willcocks Nursery is a traditional nursery school which strives to maintain its ethos for high standards, excellence and good manners.
"The Willcocks Nursery School where only the kindest and most encouraging teachers make every day quite wonderful so that by the time goodbyes are said your children hardly realise they've become almost grown up and the most well behaved, caring, sharing and cheerful children you could ever hope to find." - Mrs Stannard, Parent
