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

You can find us tucked away beneath the streets of Soho, close to Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square underground stations. We’re a cosy nursery in an intimate setting, with separate spaces for different age groups and a secret underground garden!

Our experienced staff plan each day with help from the children. There are so many activities to choose from – including acting, dance and film-making, cooking, gardening, science and woodwork. We lead in community work and the expressive arts.

The children love to explore the local area too, enjoying outings to tourist attractions like the National Gallery.

Our chef provides all meals on-site, using healthy recipes from LEYF’s menu.

We also offer term-time-only sessions between 9:00am and 3:00pm.

Hello, my name is Greg and I am the manager at Soho Nursery & Pre-School. I have been working in Early Years for over 20 years and am a qualified teacher and Early Years professional. Our nursery is right in the heart of one of the world’s most diverse cities and, amongst all the energy, we hide a secret underground garden! Our setting is host to some fantastic families and hardworking, talented and caring staff.

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.

Our Son is happy and bouncy as ever, but now with rapidly developing skills when it comes to eating new foods, making new verbal sounds, and developing his movement.
