Teddies Southfields Nursery and Preschool
Day Care Nursery in London
Teddies Nursery Southfields is located within the London Borough of Wandsworth. We are based on the ground floor of Duntshill Mill, an old coffee mill built over the River Wandle with fabulous views out over the river – our children love watching the mallard ducks, moorhens and our resident heron.
Southfields nursery has rooms aimed at different ages, within which each child has a stimulating environment for growth and development. Babies can follow their familiar home routines in our self-contained baby unit, and the nursery offers personalised ‘settling in’ visits that help children to get used to nursery life.
"We are extremely happy with our choice of nursery. By and large the team at Teddies Southfields are exemplary and should be rewarded accordingly. I am always comfortable and confident that my children are safe and in good hands as soon as I leave them in the morning." Parent, Teddies Southfields
Our toddler room has a huge range of activities, toys and resources on offer for play and learning! These include story time (with puppets!) Music and Movement sessions, Cookery Club and Gardening Club. Southfields children love playing on our indoor slide and getting creative with sand and water play. This busy room is structured so there are quiet areas in addition to our larger play area for more active times of the day.
"I've been a parent at the Nursery for just over a year and it seems to be going from strength to strength. My daughter loves the nursery and the new manager Kerry is very helpful and welcoming to me and my family. I have and will continue to recommend the nursery to friends." Parent, Teddies Southfields
Teddies Southfields pre-school children are given a gentle introduction into academic subjects like reading, writing and maths to develop their abilities and boost their self-confidence in preparation for school. Children also benefit from extra-curricular Computer Lessons from “Click IT” - and all of our children enjoy looking after our popular nursery pets- we have a hamster, an African land snail and fish!
“I am more than satisfied. The nursery has exceeded my expectations as a parent. The weekly news letters are a lovely touch too!”-Parent at Teddies Southfields
There is a regular schedule of events at Southfields for all the family to enjoy; we hold parents barbecues, Sports Days, Graduation ceremonies and many other celebrations throughout the year. We also have a children’s committee where children join our Nursery Manager every two months to give their feedback, discussing the nursery and sharing any ideas they have on topics like new toys, garden design, the menu and many more. Our children recently helped to design a growing area in the garden, for planting seeds and growing their own fruit and vegetables. We now also offer Spanish lessons for our Little Learners and Pre-School children.
Natural Play Builders attend regular sessions for the children to extend their play & Learning with explorations, nurture their curiosity and support them in creatively taking all areas of their play, learning and development forward.
“Thank you for all the effort and time you put into organising all the activities for the babies and all the small details that you notice and the individual approach you take with each baby”-Parent at Teddies Southfields

Consequently children make excellent progress overall in relation to their starting points. The nursery promotes a fully inclusive environment where every child is valued extremely highly as an individual.
