Hi there, I'm looking for a nursery in Wimbledon for my DD from August onwards. She'll be 11mnths and I'll be back at work 3 days a week. Can anyone speak highly (or otherwise!) about nurseries like Dee's Day, Dickybirds (either Dundonald or Queens Rd branches) or Building Blocks? I've lived in Wimbledon all my life but haven't a clue about the nurseries and know that the waiting lists are extraordinary! Building Blocks certainly get rave reviews, with their individual nanny option but are the others as attentive? Thanks for any guidance!

My friend used the one on Wimbledon Hill (Building blocks?) and said it was very good. I used Eveline in Raynes Park and would recommend it but it may not be in the right area for you. They have a wimbledon branch on Quicks Rd which I would imagine is as good as the Raynes Park one but I cannot personally recommend it as I haven't used it. I went to Dees in Raynes Park and TBH didnt like it but I know people who have used it and are happy with it. I have heard Teddies in Raynes Park has a very high turn over of staff.

Thanks for the messages. Not sure about the one on Wimbledon Hill... I think it's called Playdays??? In which case, does that mean it's changed hands recently?

Ds went to Lollipops which is in Wimbledon chase so maybe a little far frm where you want. i cannot recommend them highly enough. It was at Lollipops that we finally got the help we needed to get him diagnosed with ASD. they were fantastic and went beyond the call of duty for him.

Hi - not sure where you live, but I can highly recommend Wimbledon Day Nursery in Montague Road. Staff are fantastic, very enthusiastic and my son is very happy there. They also have a great outdoor space, a rarity in this area I think... Take a look at their website
