About the nursery

Rated Good by Ofsted, Fire Station Nursery & Pre-School provides childcare and education to children from birth to 5 years old.

We’re based inside The Old Fire Station in Stoke Newington, close to Rectory Road station. We have spaces dedicated to different age groups, including a cosy room for babies. Our experienced team has worked together for many years.

Each activity is designed to stimulate the child’s curiosity. The children enjoy science, dialogic reading, cooking, yoga, 'feelings boxes', and much more. They love to get outdoors too, visiting the local shops and exploring nearby Abney Park.

Our on-site chef prepares all meals using healthy recipes from LEYF’s menu.

Water play is a chance for the children to develop hand-eye coordination and pouring skills and learn about capacity.

Role play provides the children with fantastic opportunities to learn about everyday people who keep us safe.

"Staff are very friendly, warm and welcoming. The activities are clearly interesting and varied, and there's always a kind word from the team."
