Business profile: Balham Nursery School and Children’s Centre is the oldest of the three state nursery schools in Wandsworth. The school was set up in the early thirties by members of the local community and others dedicated to the principles of nursery education. Our building in Endlesham Road was bought by public subscription and amongst those who made donations were the late Queen Mary, the then Major and Mrs Clement Attlee and Lady Megan Lloyd George. The school was officially opened on the 23rd May 1935 by Lady Astor, the first woman to become an MP.

Balham Nursery School and Children’s Centre is one of Wandsworth Council’s designated Children’s Centres. Children’s Centres provide a range of services to meet the needs of children under five in their local community. They ‘signpost’ families to services provided elsewhere when they are unable to make the provision themselves.

BNSCC endeavours to meet the varied needs of children and families in the community and operates in strong partnership with parents and carers. Free support to parents and carers is offered through parenting courses that are relevant to child rearing in our complex society. These courses are advertised locally and are open to all parents and carers in the local community with young children.
