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.


Balham Nursery School is a 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.
