"Located below an anonymous block of flats called Pear Tree House in Upper Norwood was a secret Civil Defence bunker from the Cold War. The bunker was not secret for long and was frequently daubed with CND stickers, before it was closed after pressure from the self-declared nuclear free Lambeth council in 1993."

Crystal Palace transmitting station is a beacon for the South.

Child-friendly activities near Norwood

Tippee Toes Music


Our class structure is designed for carers to fully participate in the class with their child and baby which is an extremely important part of the success of the classes. The more you take part in the music making and movement, the more your child will get out of it. Children learn by imitation and when they see you singing, playing musical instruments and moving to the music they will try to do the same. Website

Sing and Sign

LWS Cafe & Charity
Developed with the help of Speech and Language experts and launched in January 2001, the "Sing and Sign" programme has since taught thousands of parents across the UK how to sign with their babies and encourage amazing early communication. Website

Crafty Cooks

Braziliana Cafe
A love of cooking and an ability to do so is an important skill that every child should have. Children from as young as 24 months are taught how to cook a whole range of delicious, nutritious dishes. They will cook both sweet and savoury, from beetroot cakes to mini quiches with a spattering of chocolate in the middle! The lovely Heather runs Crafty Cooks South London. She runs regular classes and holiday clubs and really enjoys meeting lots of little Crafty Cooks! Website

Babysitting and Spa

The Shala
For all those exhausted parents in need of a stretch and some quiet time, we have now launched our on-site babysitting service at the Shala. On weekday mornings, you can bring your little person to be looked after and entertained in a studio next door, while you have some time to recharge, rejuvenate and RELAX with a massage or a yoga or Pilates class. On-site babysitting is available for our 9.30am weekday classes and treatments slots Tuesday to Friday. Your child will be looked after by an experienced childminder while you do a class or have a massage. The childminder has a great deal of experience looking after young children - she looks after our children and comes highly recommended!
