Balham Nursery School & Children's Centre
Support and Education for local families & children under 5

Balham Nursery School

Balham Nursery School and Children’s Centre provides an ideal environment for young children making that first important step from home to school.


We cater for children from 3-5 years old and a very small number of 2 year olds.


The nursery occupies the whole of a detached Victorian House with a wonderful garden.


All children are individuals with their own special needs. We aim to give each child the best possible start to his or her education so that they are able to learn and to develop to the best of their ability.


We strongly believe that school should be a positive and rewarding experience for both child and parent. Parents are encouraged to be involved in the school and in their children’s education and they are represented on the Governing Body. We also have a thriving Parents Staff and Friends Association which supports the school in a variety of ways.


Thank you for your interest and we look forward to meeting you!

Children's Centre

As a fully designated Children’s Centre we serve the needs of families with children under 5 who live in the area. 


The facilities are for those who attend the Nursery as well as those who do not – everyone is welcome


Our Family Services Manager, Alyson Attoe, organises a range of activities and services for parents and children

Many of the activities take place during school holiday periods and we have had a very successful uptake from local families over the last year.
