‘Children flourish and make rapid progress in this welcoming, nurturing and inclusive nursery.’ Ofsted

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

We’re in Lower Clapton, close to Hackney Downs and Hackney Central stations. We’re a light and roomy nursery with two gardens – one for under 2s and one for pre-schoolers.

The nursery has great links to the wider community and many of our staff live locally. There are lots of activities to try from learning Spanish to cooking, construction, growing fruit and veg and more!

The children love to get out and about too, enjoying outings to the local shops and library.

Our chef provides all meals using recipes from LEYF’s 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 Yvonne and I'm the manager of Pembury Nursery & Pre-School. I've been at LEYF since 2018. I love spending time with the children and being part of their journeys and inspiring their futures. People would describe me as passionate, motivated and adaptable – all essential skills for a nursery manager!

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 at Pembury are simply amazing. They are kind, caring, warm-hearted and give the children the emotional support they need.
Parent at Pembury
My son settled in instantly to Pembury nursery and is deeply happy there. He is so content that when I go to pick him up for the evening, he often doesn't want to leave! The staff are warm and friendly and so caring towards the children.
