House of Commons Nursery and Pre‑School

Ages taken: Birth to 5 years

You can find us on the Parliamentary Estate, close to Westminster tube. We’re a bright, spacious nursery, with plenty of natural light.

Our experienced staff inspire learning through curiosity and discovery. The children enjoy activities from science to woodwork and cooking, obstacle courses, sensory play and more.

The children also love to get outdoors – buying fruit and veg in Chinatown or climbing trees at St James’s Park.

We get parents and carers involved with nursery events including parent workshops, coffee mornings, graduations and Christmas events.

Our on-site chef prepares all meals and snacks, using recipes from LEYF’s nutritious menu.

House of Commons Nursery and Pre-School is exclusively available to the following groups: Members of the House of Commons, Members’ staff, House of Commons and Parliamentary Digital Service employees, House of Lords Peers and staff (including the grandchildren of these pass holders), Press Gallery Media Pass Holders and Contractors situated on the Parliamentary Estate.

Meet the manager

Michelle, nursery manager

Hello, my name is Michelle and I'm the manager at House of Commons Nursery & Pre-School. I have worked at LEYF since 2016. We have a fantastic staff team, who inspire the children every day. People would describe me as creative, dynamic and passionate about the nursery and the children in our care.

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.

Both of my children have been extremely happy at the nursery. They have made good friends and clearly love the staff! They have also both been very well supported in their development.
