Sparkies Nursery School
Sparkies is a nursery school for children aged two years to rising five, registered by Ofsted . We are based in St Luke’s Community Hall, Ramsden Road in Balham.
Sparkies occupies the main hall on the ground floor and have access to a large, enclosed garden space. They follow the Ofsted standards and employ Early Years Foundation Stage as guidance, but they also like to be slightly spontaneous in their approach to learning. This may involve exploring nature, discussing the weather, the use of specialised books, simple science experiments or supervised outings to local places of interest.
Please contact Sparkies for more information.
