Home cooked food, a safe space to learn and grow, and heaps of fun is what our children experience at any of our Lucky Beans Childcare nurseries. Particularly at our two nurseries in Streatham.


We’ll talk more on the environment and approach of our child care in a moment… but this decision you need to make on which Streatham nursery to send your child to is just as important for you as it is for your child. 


What we offer to our parents:

Peace of mind at drop off, updates throughout the day, detailed handovers at the end of the day, and best of all, a smiling child when you pick them up!


Although we’re here to care for your child, we’re here to support you too. Placing your child in either of our nurseries in Streatham, consider us as part of your team to build a bright future for your little one.

A Day in the Life

What our parents say...

Owen, Rhianon and Marlowe

To the Lucky Beans Streatham Team, Thank you so so much for caring for Marlowe and giving her such a great start! We feel really lucky that she has had so much fun with you all

and we hope some luck comes your way too! Many thanks,

Emma & Family

Thank you so much for all your kindness and support with Amelia, I couldn’t have done it without you! Seriously! Absolute Angels. Thanks you so much again

Tori, Chris & Phoebe

To all the wonderful staff at Growing Beans - we just wanted to say the hugest thank you for taking such amazing care of Phoebe for the last 10 months. She has absolutely loved her time with you, and it has been so special to see her growing and developing so happily. She has run to the door smiling every morning to come and see you all, which is everything we

hoped for.

Committed to deliver high quality childcare and education to local Streatham families, just like yours

All our locations are safe and secure, with safeguarding protocols all in place. And because our care is focused on the Forest School ethos, we've made sure we have the space and zones to always get fresh air and offer the right environment for each child to learn and thrive.


We have tranquil zones for our babies, along with engaging areas for fun & messy play, dancing, singing, sensory, sport and outdoor play for our toddlers and preschoolers.


Not only do we want to give your baby the best start in life, but we want to get your toddler and preschooler ready for their move into school. Speaking of our gardens, we have climbing frames, slides, swings, tables, chairs and plenty of room for running and sport. Perfect for the kids' physical development. 


And if we hadn't already made it clear, we inspire and nurture your child's curiosity outdoors. Even if the British weather tries to stop us, we find a way!

Our child care teams

Of course, we have plenty of lovely children at the nursery, your child's future buddies, but we are focused on your child's health and safety. Our staff-to-child ratio is carefully managed to make sure all kids are safe, but also that each child gets the attention they require.


Not only are our staff professionally trained, but the Lucky Beans approach to care is to support and encourage our Little and Growing Beans to be independent, knowledgeable and happy. 


Many of our child care staff will care for your little one, but your assigned ‘Key Worker’ will be journaling your child’s development throughout their time at the nursery. 


This means they can set personal goals for your child to grow and achieve their own personal bests in every area of their learning and development.

Parent FAQs

What are your child nursery fees?

There is no set price, all our child care needs are tailored to you and your child.


Please call our admissions team on 02045010894 or email to receive our fees sheet for your chosen nursery or preschool and to arrange a tour.


Do you accept the government’s funded hours support?

Yes we do, we help parents access the 15 hours of support for 3 and 4 year-olds (or 30 hours of support if you qualify). The reduction this will make in your fees is illustrated on the fees sheet which our admissions team will send you.


What are the ratios of staff to children in the nurseries?

We adhere to the industry standard of 1 staff member to 3 children for 0-2 year-olds, 1 staff member to 4 children for 2-3 year-olds and 1 staff member to 8 children for 3-5 year-olds while in the nursery.


As we are a nursery company with a forest school ethos we spend a lot of time outdoors and when we are outdoors we have a higher ratio of staff to children than these ratios, to enable the children to explore and learn while being properly and safely supervised.

What sort of food do you serve? Can you work with my child’s allergies?

We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, plus two snacks in the morning & afternoon that are provided by our in-house chefs. Our delicious and healthy meals will fuel your little one's mind and body. Of course, we believe in balance, too! We also include a few yummy treats in our menu, because some foods are good for the soul.

All our chefs and relevant staff are trained in food hygiene holding a minimum of a Level 2 Certificate. We are understanding & accommodating to all dietary requirements, just let us know!


If your child is weaning, don’t worry, we have weaned many children successfully.


What is the daily routine at the nursery?

The exact things that we do will vary from day to day and month to month, both to keep the children interested and to best progress the children towards their learning goals.


However, in broad strokes, a day will progress like this:

  • 7:30 - 9:00 - drop-offs and breakfast

  • Free play, including sensory activities

  • Snack

  • Outdoor activities/forest school

  • Lunch from 11:45 - 12:30

  • Nap time for younger children/free play for older ones

  • Snack

  • Structured activities, often classes in music, Spanish, tennis, football or ballet provided by our outside educators

  • Supper

  • Free play

  • Pick up 5:30 - 6:30
