A message from the manager

I’m Beverley and I've been with LEYF since 1995 and have been the Manager of Micky Star since 2009. Our family-friendly nursery is warm and welcoming, and a real part of the local community. Parents particularly like how we celebrate current events and include the whole family. We have lovely large and spacious rooms, and a fabulous outdoor space which includes a new covered learning area. We share this with the children's centre and another local nursery, and it's great to have those links with other early years establishments in the area. A memory that particularly stands out for me is of a child who left the nursery to move abroad with her family, and when returning to visit the UK begged her parents to take her to see the nursery as she missed it so much. 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 Paddington, providing care and education for children from birth to 5 years. We're open 8am to 6pm, 51 weeks a year.
