Hi, Charleepeters, I live in Mitcham. Is good as you still get quite a lot of house for your money and though not brilliant itself, it's v near places like Wimbledon, Tooting, Croydon. Has OK shops, banks etc, is v near a couple of softplays, near nice parks (Morden Hall, Wimbledon) and commons (Tooting and Wandsworth).
Loads of toddler groups in Mitcham itself, Tooting and Wimbledon. Overground to central London and tram to Croydon and Wimbledon.

Redhill area would meet most of specifications. Lots of activities for preschoolers including soft play area at Donyngs Leisure centre, Jo Jingles and Tumbletots classes etc. Sainsbury's are there, Safeway in Reigate, 24 hr Tesco near Gatwick or Purley and Waitrose at Horley. Shopping centre including M and S, Smiths, Boots, banks, small theatre and local library. Public transport to London and Brighton. Horley and Merstham are slightly cheaper to live in than Redhill. It is a while since I lived there but there seem to be a number of M'netters around there now.
