Meet the manager

Yvonne, Katharine Bruce manager

Hello, I’m Yvonne and I have been with LEYF since 1996 and joined Katharine Bruce Nursery & Pre-School in 1997. We are really special because of our extensive outdoor area and qualified staff who are friendly and supportive. My proudest moment here was probably when I introduced the outing for the whole nursery, as it had never been done before I became the manager.

About the nursery

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

You can find us in Kensal Green, close to Queen’s Park and Kensal Rise stations. We’re a bright, roomy nursery with plenty of space for all-weather outdoor activities.

Our long-standing staff believe the key to learning is variety. Each day is different! The children enjoy science experiments like ‘Volcanoes’, yoga, growing vegetables in our greenhouse, messy arts play, woodwork, and more. We also have a sensory room for babies.

The Nursery's on-site chef provides a range of meals and snacks from LEYF’s nutritious menu.
