Both my children go to Balham babyroom two days a week. My eldest has been there since he was 1 he is now approaching 4 and my youngest for almost a year she is now 20 months. I cannot recommend it highly enough. The staff are attentive and caring, the manager who is relatively new is excellent and has really developed some new ideas for the different rooms since she started. There is a teacher in the pre school room who is really helping the children with both phonics and numeracy as well as general preparation for starting school in the next few months. We receive daily feedback and any issues we have raised which have always been minor have been acknowledged and addressed. The downside......... The tunnel on the way in leading off the main road is a bit grim and often full of rubbish from neighbouring businesses, the price... It's expensive- I think still one of the pricier options in the area. Hope this helps.
