Arrange a visit

Cumberland Road Nursery and Pre-School provides Early Years education and childcare to children from birth to 5 years old.

You can find us in Plaistow, close to Canning Town underground station and West Ham and Star Lane DLR stations.

Our friendly, dedicated staff run lots of activities designed to bring out the potential in every child. No day is the same and the children enjoy science experiments, cooking, gardening, construction, messy play with sand and water and more.

We have a food bank on-site, which provides additional support to parents. Our in-house chef provides all meals for the children, using healthy recipes from LEYF’s menu.

Cumberland Road hasn’t yet had an Ofsted inspection.

Meet the manager

Hello, my name is Saimma and I have worked in Early Years for 15 years and at Cumberland Road since 2015. I believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. The staff here are passionate, warm-hearted and adventurous, teaching with love, compassion and resilience. This is reflected every day in the opportunities we provide for our children and the high expectations we have of them and each other.

At LEYF, all staff live our values.


We are curious, bold and adventurous. We push boundaries and test new ideas, always standing up for the rights of children.


We encourage continuous development for children and staff. We challenge each other to question and explore so we learn together.


We are warm, caring, loving and welcoming. We create safe and homely environments for each child.


We are imaginative and creative and learn through play.

Food and nutrition at LEYF

Healthy eating is important at LEYF. Our chefs, trained at our Early Years Chef Academy, understand children’s specific nutritional needs, and how to encourage children to be adventurous in their tastes. We cater for different dietary requirements and allergies.
