About the nursery

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

You can find us in Fordham Park, close to New Cross and New Cross Gate stations. We’re a spacious, modern nursery with separate rooms and gardens for different age groups.

Our experienced staff inspire the children to learn through curiosity and discovery. There are many different activities to try, from science experiments to traditional cooking, world music to yoga, construction, sensory play with water and ice, dialogic reading, and much more! Families can join in the fun with regular workshops.

Our in-house chef prepares tasty, balanced meals using recipes from LEYF's menu.

The children enjoy learning how to take care of their teeth.

Our teachers promote positive wellbeing through fun yoga sessions.

"Everyone is so welcoming and warm that we couldn’t have wished for our boys to have a better start in life."
