Norwood Grove House

Norwood Grove House

Known locally as the "White House", Norwood Grove House and its well-tended formal gardens were opened in 1926 by the future King Edward VIII. It is the centrepiece of Norwood Grove itself; a large expanse of grass from which you can overlook Streatham and its surrounding areas. It is thoroughly underutilised and all the better for it!

Child-friendly activities near Norwood

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

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

Rainbows Parent & Toddler Group

Emmanuel Youth & Community Centre
Come and play and make new friends over a cup of coffee or tea and biscuits (juice and biscuits for the little ones). There is story telling with puppets and singing with Jo on Mondays. £3.00 for 1 adult with up to 2 kids Website

The Shala - Postnatal Massage

The Shala
After the birth, post-natal massage can provide an invaluable opportunity for mother's to allow time for self-nurture. Ideally, all new mothers would have a massage as soon after birth as possible, to help the muscles release the muscle memory of labour, gently aid healing and help with spinal realignment. These are all important factors in helping your body to return to its pre-pregnancy state. Post-natal massage can be easily done with your baby tucked up beside you, or feeding. Website

Nippers Storytime

West Noprwwod Library,
Storytime sessions for under 5s. These groups include craft activities and some refreshments are offered. Website

Conker Club

St Luke’s Church
A fantastic stay-and-play for babies and toddlers with a multitude of toys, books and puzzles, a dedicated 'soft area', activity tables and a rough-and-tumble area with gym mats for the more adventurous child. Website

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
