‘Children enjoy a broad and varied range of interesting activities, firmly based around topics and themes that appeal to their individual interests.’ Ofsted

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted, Brixton Nursery and Pre-School provides Early Years education and childcare to children from birth to 5 years old. You can find us in Brixton, a few minutes’ walk from the train and tube stations.

We’re based inside the recreation centre, in a cosy setting with a small outdoor area and use of the centre’s swimming pool and soft play area. Our experienced staff draw inspiration from Brixton’s rich cultural history. Activities include science experiments, woodwork, cooking, messy arts play and much more.

The children love to get out and about in the local area too, enjoying trips to the local shops and market. Our in-house chef provides all meals for the children, using healthy recipes from LEYF’s menu.

Meet the manager

Hello, my name is Vanessa and I’m the nursery manager at Brixton Nursery. I joined LEYF in 2024, with 15 years in Early Years Education. I am passionate about creating a supportive and nurturing environment for our children.

At LEYF, all staff live our values.


We are curious, bold and adventurous. We push boundaries and test new ideas, always standing up for the rights of children.


We encourage continuous development for children and staff. We challenge each other to question and explore so we learn together.


We are warm, caring, loving and welcoming. We create safe and homely environments for each child.


We are imaginative and creative and learn through play.

Our son loved it and flourished there. Staff are warm, energetic, professional and so committed to his learning and development.
