Flexible creche or nursery in Sydenham

Post by Ria » 8 Oct 2014 16:34

We are looking for a flexible creche or nursery for one or two days (few hours)per week. Our son is 2 and ideally we would like to find something locally. If you have any ideas, recommendations please let me know.
Thanks a lot!

Not sure about this in Sydenham, but there is a crèche or similar called magic moments or something, towards Dulwich. Sorry, bit vague but a search on the Family Discussion board on the EDF will give you the info.
Look at Sydenham Pre School too, Macklin Close near FH Pool. They offer sessions, but as with most nursery business models, you probably have to book set sessions per week. A lovely, knowledgeable team there.

Thank you for your suggestions KM. Have heard good words about magic moments... it's great if you are based in dulwich. Groups are 2 hours only so to travel there and back with my newborn is not ideal. If something like this would be in Sydenham so we can walk then even 2 hours make sense, otherwise we would like to find somewhere he can stay for at least 3hours. Will try to find out a bit more about local pre- school. Any ideas how much pre-schools and nurseries usually charge for half a day? How difficult is to get a place in them?
Thanks!

Hi,
Lammas Green Nursery in Sydenham offer 3 hour sessions. They have two branches one in St Bartholomew's Westwood Hill and one on Lammas Green on Sydenham hill.
They offer morning and afternoon sessions.
Hope this helps.
