A message from the manager

My name is Tania, I have been working for LEYF since 2008 and have been Nursery Manager at Brixton Community Nursery from February 2015. Our nursery is family friendly and welcoming. We also have a great location in the vibrant and exciting centre of Brixton, where we take our children on regular outings such as to the market or local parks in the community. Brixton nursery has a well-resourced environment, designed to suit the needs of each individual child in our care. My favourite memory at Brixton is when I helped a SEN child to secure a LSA to support her needs. Working in partnership with another social enterprise (GLL) enables us to share ideas, it also means we are able to promote the importance of health and fitness to our children and families. We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

We provide care and education for children from birth to 5 years and are open 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.

Tania, Nursery Manager
