‘Children are enthusiastic learners. Staff implement exciting activities based around children’s fascinations which capture their interest and imagination.’ Ofsted

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted, Camberwell Grove Nursery and Pre-School provides Early Years education and childcare to children from birth to 5 years old.

You can find us in Camberwell, close to Denmark Hill and East Dulwich stations. We’re a bright, spacious nursery with a large garden.

Our caring, qualified staff use imaginative play to stimulate each child’s curiosity. Activities include yoga and PE, singing and signing nursery rhymes, messy arts play, cooking, construction and much more. We aim to be a sustainable nursery and have our very own allotment on-site, where the children enjoy growing vegetables.

Parents and carers are invited to attend regular advisory groups at Camberwell Grove.

The nursery’s chef prepares home-cooked meals and snacks for the children from LEYF’s nutritious menu.

Meet the manager

Hello, my name is Naomi and I am the manager here at Camberwell Grove. I have eight years' experience working in nurseries and thoroughly enjoy my work here, surrounded by beautiful, happy faces. Here at Camberwell Grove, we have a very child-centred approach. We lead children into the curriculum with their own interests as the focus. We believe it’s a great way for children to be engaged and learn!

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.

We feel so lucky that our son had the opportunity to attend Camberwell Grove Nursery & Pre-School. The staff are so attentive and caring. They really put time into his development. The environment is also great with amazing outdoor space. It really is a great place for kids to become bold, brave characters.
