Childminder or nursery in Balham for one year old

Postby 246JS » Mon Nov 09, 2020 7:55 am

Hi NV - we are moving to Balham and have to find childcare (4 days per week) for my one year old from April. Does anyone have any childminder recommendations or tips on where I should be looking to find one? Or, failing that, nursery recommendations?
Thanks!

Hi - If you're also looking at nurseries I would highly recommend Nightingale Nursery which is rather hidden & accessed through SFX College on Malwood Rd.  My two (now 10 & 12) were there full time from the age of 3 months and couldn't have been happier.  It's small, family appeal put it heads and shoulders above some of the other nurseries we saw, and the staff turnover is very low which speaks volumes.  Do DM me if you want to chat further - it's a difficult decision!  Good luck

Hi again - thanks musicmum - we looked at nightingale on your recommendation and liked it but they can't commit to a place for us for spring unfortunately.
Does anyone have any other suggestions of nurseries or childminders in the Balham or tooting bec area? We've tried all the Eveline branches (since that's where we had secured a place for our daughter in the area we were previously living in) but they have no spaces for spring.
Any suggestions much appreciated!
