Fire Station Nursery and Pre‑School

Ages taken: Birth to 5 years

Fire Station Nursery has moved to our brand NEW Stoke Newington Nursery


Rated Good by Ofsted, Fire Station Nursery & Pre-School provides Early Years education and childcare to children from birth to 5 years old.

We’re based inside The Old Fire Station in Stoke Newington, close to Rectory Road station.

We have spaces dedicated to different age groups, including a cosy room for babies. Our experienced team has worked together for many years.

Every activity we do is designed to stimulate the children’s curiosity. The children enjoy science, dialogic reading, cooking, yoga, ‘feelings boxes’ and much more!

They love to get outdoors too, visiting the local shops and exploring nearby Abney Park. Our on-site chef prepares all meals using healthy recipes from LEYF’s menu.

Meet the manager

Hello, my name is Anna, and I will be the manager at Stoke Newington Nursery & Pre-School. I've been at LEYF since 2021. I've worked in the Early Years sector for over 16 years and met many wonderful families. I believe it's a great privilege to work with children and each journey with each individual child is magical. I feel fulfilled when I hear children's laughter and see their smiles.

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.

The staff are absolutely fantastic. My baby boy has such a wonderful time and he's come on heaps – I have only praise for the high quality care he receives.

Jessica, parent at Fire Station

Having been so nervous of visiting nurseries, they really put my mind at ease. I was so impressed by the nursery and everyone's friendly and welcoming manner.
