I'm in the middle of Wandsworth Common and Tooting Common, both of which I love equally and visit daily.
There are so many benefits for children to be outdoors regularly, and I personally love to be amongst the great outdoors exploring nature at its finest. I am very close to Balham which is the home to many playgroups, soft plays, Balham Market and - my favourite - Balham Library, which is always hosting a number of events for children in the early years! I have a beautiful church at the top of my road which holds a playgroup weekly. I have a wonderful community of childcare professionals within such close proximity to my tiney home, there is always plenty of play dates on the agenda!
