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

You can find us in Hackney, not far from London Fields station. We’re a roomy nursery, with plenty of natural light and separate areas for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. We have lots of space for all-weather outdoor play.

The children enjoy a wide range of stimulating activities with our experienced team. Activities include messy arts play, gardening, woodwork, science experiments, chopping veg in our home corner using real utensils, obstacle courses, cooking and more.

Our chef provides all meals from scratch, using healthy recipes from LEYF’s nutritious menu.

We also offer parents at this nursery the option of choosing shorter days for your child – 8am until 4pm. This will save you 20% on standard full-day nursery fees. Just get in touch with us at

Meet the manager

Hello, my name is Caroline and I am manager of London Fields Nursery & Pre-School. I have been working in the Early Years sector since 1989. I spent several years in Europe and then in Asia, teaching Early Years education in a local government school. I find Early Years education fascinating, especially ensuring that children are empowered to be independent thinkers.

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.

In 3 months, he's advanced so much, in such a short space of time. Really worth every penny; I'm so glad we were able to send our son here.

Parent at London Fields

Our son particularly loves the playground, and the activities organised by the staff (that we can follow with the ParentZone app) are stimulating and fun.
