Drop-In Crèche in Putney, London

Our Drop-In Crèche started thanks to popular demand from parents and friends of Gwendolen House Nursery who were looking for ad-hoc sessions to undertake freelance or part time work, go to the gym, attend an appointment, have an emergency childcare need or just wanted to have some child-free time to spend with friends or to get on with those jobs that need to be tackled without distractions.

Situated at St John’s Hall in Ravenna Road, SW15, the Drop-In Crèche is for children of from nine months to pre-school age and operates during term time Monday to Friday (excluding Bank Holidays) between 8.30 am to 2.30 pm with sessions for a minimum of one hour.

At the Drop-In Crèche children will benefit from:

  • A wholesome breakfast and/or lunch (depending on the sessions attended) prepared by the Gwendolen House in-house catering team; and
  • Structured, social and creative indoor activities.

Prior to booking sessions, you will need to book a visit to be shown round and ask any questions whilst your child enjoys a settling in session with the Drop-In Crèche staff. We can then help you to register your child for the Drop-In Crèche.

You will need to pay a one off registration fee of £50 and we will need to collate information about your child so as to get to know them a little better – for example, their likes and dislikes, if there are any special dietary requirements, medical conditions and/or religious traditions that we would need to observe with your child whilst they are at the Drop-In Crèche.

You will, also, be given a Parental Agreement which sets out the terms and conditions of your registration which you will need to sign and return to us. Once this registration procedure has been completed then you’re ready to go and can proceed to book your Drop-In sessions.
