Balham Rainbow Nursery provides a stimulating and creative play environment where each activity is designed to capture your child’s imagination. We strongly believe that every child is unique and that their learning journey should follow a pattern that best suits their individual personality. 


This journey is about you as much as it is about your child. Our aim is not only to provide a happy and stimulating environment for your child, but to also make parents lives as easy as possible. Therefore, we provide an all-inclusive service for your child where nappies, wipes, formula milk, meals, learning and happiness are included. 

Balham Rainbow Nursery is a home, a castle, a spaceship, a boat, a place filled with fun and imagination for our growing learners.

The nursery is separated into two big, open-plan rooms, for children aged 0-2 and 2-5. Each room is kitted out with resources appropriate to, and challenging for, the age group. With the help of a very talented local artist, the space has been designed in a way that appeals to children and stimulates their imaginations, and kids are always delighted by the fun murals of animals on a variety of London transport vehicles!


During their time with us we provide rich curriculum to help children develop respect for one another and become active, creative, emotionally aware independent individuals.


We aim to be transparent and fair in our pricing, and always offer competitive rates for the area.


We provide a healthy and nutritionally balanced menu which rotates on a three-weekly basis and changes seasonally to offer the freshest and tastiest fruits and vegetables.

Meet Our Senior Staff

Balham Rainbow Nursery is staffed by people who love children and are committed to facilitating their safety, development and happiness. Everyone on our enthusiastic and dedicated team is either fully qualified or actively working towards a recognised childcare qualification, and many also have specialist certification in areas like Child Protection, First Aid and Food Hygiene.



Suzanne has many years' experience in childcare around the world, having passed her BTEC in 2002 with Distinction and followed up with numerous vocational qualifications. She joined us in 2015 as our first employee, back when the nursery was still a building site!

Alicia joined Balham Rainbow Nursery in 2017 working in the lower room with her favourite age group. She was quickly promoted to Deputy Manager, helping us create warm and welcoming atmosphere. Her love of children and passion for early years education shows in everything she does.
