Arrange a visit

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted, Burgess Park Pre-School provides Early Years education and childcare to children from 2 to 5 years old. You can find us in Peckham, just off the Old Kent Road. We’re a big, open-plan nursery with a lovely spacious garden.

The children enjoy a wide range of activities with our experienced staff, from cooking to yoga, science, gardening, construction and much more! The children also love to get creative – making woodland scenes using pine cones, twigs and toys.

The nursery has strong links to the local community. Our on-site food bank provides additional support to parents and we also run a clothes bank. Our in-house chef provides all the children’s meals, using healthy recipes from LEYF’s menu.
