Young minds, big ambitions

The London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) is an award-winning family of 37 nurseries across London. We are the UK's largest childcare social enterprise, working to support long-term social change.

We care about London's families, which is why in our nurseries we nurture new friendships and big ambitions through creativity, play and laughter. We make every day inspiring.

We know that becoming a parent changes your life forever. No one's ever really ready for it. Most days you find you're stepping out into the great unknown. So let's take this next step together; learning and growing through the surprises and the silliness, the colour and the chaos, the mess and the magic.

We were proud to be named 'Nursery Group of the Year 2015' at the NMT awards, the second year in a row we received the award.
