A message from the manager

Hello, I’m Mona and I have been with LEYF since 1997 and Marsham Street's Manager since 2012. The things I love about the nursery are our newly refurbished garden (complete with a climbing wall!), our lovely sensory room and friendly staff. What really makes me smile is when the babies in the under 2s room say my name, and one of my favourite memories is the time I spent helping a SEN child settle sitting with her in my office looking for pictures of the teletubbies on the computer. We're very proud of our nursery and would love to show you around! Please get in touch to arrange a visit.

We are located in Westminster, providing care and education for children from birth to 5 years. We're open 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.
