Children from Balham and Tooting join our nursery class from the term after they turn two years and four months. They join us for a minimum of three mornings a week (Tuesday through Thursday) starting at 8.45am and finishing at 12pm. The children are welcome to join us for more than 3 mornings and also have the option of staying for lunch until 1pm or staying for afternoon school, ending their day at 3.15pm.


In the year they turn four, children move into Pre-Reception where they all stay for five morning sessions each week. As with nursery, they are able to stay for lunch or afternoon school also. We encourage children to attend at least one afternoon session per week to ease the transition between part time and full time school.

What parents say

‘Both of my children went to BH – the nursery is perfect for that first introduction to life in a school environment. It is big with different areas for focused play and learning. Teachers are lovely and really do care. Then for pre-reception they follow on with fun led teaching which really supports the children ready for big school. I loved the school’
