Good morning -
does anyone have any nursery recommendations in the Wandsworth / Clapham / Balham area?

Friends have used ecole des benjamins and dolphin (which is in tooting almost)

I walk past Abacus a lot and they seem unable to keep their door shut so I would avoid them!

When we lived in London DD1 went [http://www.evelinedaynursery.com/default.asp here] - the Chillerton Road branch.
She loved it - not cheap but she was there for nearly three years and we never had a single problem with it.

Aagh - I meant here of course.

Many thanks for the leads. I am hoping to go back to work full time.

I guess we can guess whereabouts from the name!!
Dolphin does seem nice but had some trouble with ofsted reports a while back (it is called looking glass now) despite that the parents I know who use it seem happy with it.
Ecole des B does long hours which could be useful I know another one which also does long hours but it's nearer Tooting. The Elm Park nursery also look lovely happy parents huge garden etc.
know several people very happy with Bringing up baby North of Clapham Common.
If your child is over 12 months there are more choices.
Good luck
Have you tried all the local childrens information services to get a list?

Several 'reputable' MN-ers have used and recommended Elm Park
