Rated Good by Ofsted, South Bermondsey Nursery and Pre-School provides Early Years education and childcare to children from birth to 5 years old. You can find us in Bermondsey, not far from Bermondsey underground station and South Bermondsey railway station. We’re a bright, modern nursery, with separate rooms and gardens for different age groups.

Our experienced staff plan each day with help from the children. There are lots of activities to choose from – including obstacle courses, cooking, gardening, modelling clay, painting and dialogic reading. No day is ever the same! Families can join in the fun too, with days dedicated to cultures from around the world.

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

My son loves coming and playing with all his friends. It has done him the world of good coming here and has made him a lot more confident. He also learns a lot. It’s a great nursery.
