When many young Clapham renters started to think about having a family, they realised they’d already found a home in the energetic streets of Clapham Old Town and Clapham High Street and the active lifestyle facilitated by the open playing fields of Clapham Common. Buying a family home in Clapham can position children to enjoy the same opportunities. Here are our top four typically Clapham activities to introduce your children to the Clapham they’ve all been talking about.
Yoga for children – Baby Bumpkin and Tatty Bumpkin
While your kids are unlikely to become masters of Zen between the age of 0-7, Baby Bumpkin and Tatty Bumpkin develop practices to help kids function throughout their tiring day. From enhancing creativity and increasing strength to developing communication and improving concentration, classes are tailored to a child’s developmental stage using postures inspired by yoga. Locations in South West London include Clapham, Wandsworth and Battersea.
Coffee, cakes and craft - Pottery Café
Few things in the world make children feel more important than making something special that Mum and Dad can use every day. Here your child can get creative using free hand or using decorating tools. Each studio has first-class coffee made by Union Roasters with freshly made cakes, cookies and bite-size treats.
Duke of Edinburgh’s Award - Emma’s Kitchen
This is one of the more practically focused cookery courses in Clapham which kids can use to count towards their Duke of Edinburgh’s Award form. Emma has a wealth of experience spanning various age groups and puts fun and informative at the forefront of her ethos. She is well-versed on helping kids achieve their award, including completing the confirmation documentation.
Never too early to become bilingual! - Arc en Ciel
It’s never too early to learn a language and Clapham is surrounded by well-regarded language schools. Learning a language before secondary school cycle means kids can focus on the more functional aspects of bilinguism like the language needed to play sport, converse on holiday and engage in a new culture through music, singing and dance. Arc en Ciel offers high quality lessons by native teachers well-versed in tailoring lessons to a younger audience.
