Balham Children's Centre
Balham Children's Centre is a welcoming space where you and your child can have fun and learn.
For mums, dads and carers with their children aged 0 - 3.5 years.
At a Children’s Centre you can:
- make friends;
- learn to play creatively with your child;
- do things that can bring you closer with your child;
- improve your parenting skills;
- complete training courses which can help you back into the world of work;
- have fun knowing that your child is nearby and being properly cared for;
- attend groups for parents of special needs children or for young parents; and
- get support with family problems.
Please note that due to restricted numbers, the centre is currently only able to work with families for their drop in Play and Learn sessions.
Some sessions need to be pre-booked, and others are by invitation only - please see the timetable under 'Downloads' for information.

Due to the continuing increase in infection rates linked to COVID- 19, early years and children centre programming may be subject to change at short notice to protect families, staff and partners. We will take all precautions to ensure good hygiene, pre-testing, mask wearing and social distancing to ensure that services can continue. Buildings may need to close for extensive cleaning if there has been confirmed positive Covid cases on sites. Staff will update all service users and social media, where possible, re arranging the staff and services to one of the other early years or children centres sites. Please continue to check with staff and social media prior to coming to participate in services and please take all precautions to stay safe.
