Creative, exploratory play where children interact with nature.


A rich and stimulating environment which supports young children’s learning through purposeful play.


A happy, healthy community where everyone can develop confidence, respect for others and a love of learning.

Kate McKeever - Executive Headteacher's Welcome

Balham Nursery School is an outstanding Wandsworth maintained nursery school where we provide a happy, healthy community and everyone can develop confidence, respect for others and a love of learning.

A great education is one of the most precious gifts a child can receive and in everything we do, we are driven by the best interests of the child.

We hope that you and your child will have wonderful memories of Balham that stay with you forever.

Cherishing our past, embracing our future

We aim to help realise the potential social, intellectual, physical and emotional development of each child irrespective of race, class, gender, culture, language or disability. Our Federation Development Plan 2022-2025 encapsulates our priorities in order to achieve this goal.
