Rated Good by Ofsted, Eastbury Nursery & Pre-School provides Early Years education and childcare to children from birth to 5 years old. You can find us in Barking, not far from Upney underground station. We’re a deceptively large nursery, with lots of space and separate rooms and gardens for different age groups.

The children enjoy sensory play with foam and ice, dialogic reading, language groups, cooking and much more. Outside, we have a climbing frame, a vegetable patch and even a mud kitchen!

We run regular sessions for parents too and offer excellent SEND support. Many families that visit comment on the welcoming atmosphere and family feel of the nursery.

Our chef prepares healthy, balanced meals, using recipes from LEYF’s menu.

We also offer term-time-only sessions from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

Tina, nursery manager

Hello, my name is Tina and I have been manager at Eastbury Nursery & Pre-School since 2014. Eastbury Nursery has lots of unique things about it, such as its excellent, large outdoor space, with a great undercover area, which children have access to at all times. There is also a garden and the children's own vegetable patch.

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 he's fully prepared to start school, due in no small part to all of you.

Parent at Eastbury

I am very happy with all services and really do respect all of the staff. I can’t explain how satisfied I am, I wish you could do reception as well.
