LEYF started in 1903, a time of poverty and shockingly high mortality, as Westminster Health Society.

Founders, such as Margaret Horn, embarked on an ambitious plan to promote child welfare and family health at the heart of a community in need.

An incredible 45 years before the NHS, we were already pioneers – offering training in professional childcare, outreach and home visits, along with local drop-in sessions and classes in parenting.

    To date, this has been a good experience. My daughter has settled in well and enjoys going to nursery. She has made lots of friends too.

    Townmead Community Nursery is a fabulous nursery. My daughter loves it and has made loads of friends. She especially loves her keyworker and talks a lot about her at home. Her keyworker has been very helpful also.

    Townmead Community Nursery offers excellent education for my 4-year-old who has been attending full-time since she was 2-years-old. She has developed so much and learnt English to a native standard in a couple of months, even though it was her 2nd language.
    I’m impressed by the staff’s professionalism, skills and dedication to make the nursery a happy and safe place that feels like a 2nd home.

    Since joining the Nursery my daughter has developed in so many ways. She is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going to nursery every day. We put much of this down to the care and attention she has received at the Nursery.

    Leyf Townmead Community Nursery is a brilliant nursery. They have managed to settle my child easily and made me feel comfortable. The staff are an asset to not only the business but the community. They really are silent heroes. Nothing could ever repay them for the work with my child.

    Our nursery was awarded ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED and all children and parents were invited to celebrate such a great achievement. It was an amazing event and we had a sense of involvement and sharing. Children, parents and management all worked together and credits were given to all. Besides, we had a brilliant party! A great nursery!
    Children are happy, given all the attention, parents are involved, management is open to suggestions, helpful and accommodating. Top Nursery!

    My son enjoys being in Townmead Community Nursery a lot. We believe and know that our son can’t wait in the morning to go to nursery. Staff are very helpful, friendly and very professional. Our son, for the time being here, has learnt a lot and is very happy. Always talks about the staff at nursery and saying good words. Excellent, keep up with good work.

    Townmead Community Nursery’s staff is very competent and warm and knows how to make children feel welcome and comfortable. My 2 children attended Townmead Community Nursery and enjoyed it very much, even though they are very different in character and interests. I would highly recommend Townmead Community Nursery to any parent.

    When my son first started they helped him settle in quickly and smoothly, which I was pleased with. He has been attending for a while now and he’s made friends with both children and teachers.
    I feel like since he first started to now it has slightly gone downhill as no one really tells you how your child is getting on, sometimes nappy would not be clean on pick up.

    My son and I have had a very positive experience with his nursery. The staff are all lovely and genuinely care for the children they look after. he loves going to nursery and always enjoys it. He has learnt a lot since he has been there. We will really miss it when he leaves!

    I have two children at this nursery and they both love it there, one will be attending school soon and does not want to leave! The staff are amazing and form a strong bond with all children. The confidence my children have developed has amazed me and it is all down to the nursery. Honestly couldn’t have found a better nursery to send them to!

    Very caring and encouraging environment. My son has developed in so many ways, looks forward to going into nursery every day. Caring and professional teachers, supportive and nurturing. I couldn’t thank them enough. Can’t wait to send my younger son there.

    We want to thank you for your hard work keeping our children safe and teaching them. Lovely nursery and pre-school. I feel the school and staff are working so well together and pupils feel the benefits. Wonderful teacher and the support they give is very much appreciated. Even though my son is still in the process of settling I do believe that he has improved socially and academically already. It’s truly wonderful! A very big plus is the Parent Zone by LEYI where we enjoy being able to log in and view our child’s daily activities and also contribute to this lovely journey.

    Our child very much enjoys going to the nursery school. She loves all activities that are open to them. As parents, we are happy to see our child develop so well. The staff gives a lot of individual attention to the children and we are impressed by the quick progress made by our child. Our child joined the nursery in September last year and did not speak English at the time. Now she is so confident and makes herself understood. The nursery also has great facilities, including an outside garden with plants (planted by the children). Children also go regularly to parks and playgrounds nearby and it offers good visits out of the school (eg. fire brigade, hospital, to give books to children there, dentist …).

    My daughter started The London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) nursery in January 2023. This has been the best decision I have made for my daughter.
    The London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) nursery has been amazing with her transition and I can see how she has developed in many ways in such a short space of the time.
    The London Early Years Foundation (LEYF)team are so kind, supportive, welcoming, knowledgeable, encouraging and consistent in their approach. My daughter is learning a lot and building even more on her social skills. My daughter looks forward to going nursery to see her friends and also to see her nursery teachers.
    My daughter has adapted and is more settled as a result of this. Thank you greatly.
    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the team at The London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) nursery Wandsworth Bridge Nursery & Pre-School. Thank you so very much for the consistent, professionalism, dedication and support you have all shown to myself and my daughter.

    A great nursery and son has made excellent progress during his time at nursery! My son has made wonderful friends and feels safe with staff. Staff have been great supporting my son’s needs. Couldn’t recommend the nursery more.

    My daughter absolutely loves it here I couldn’t be happier with the nursery couldn’t ask for anymore! She has only just started here a short while ago and already loves the nursery. She has made so many friends and I can see the love and care the staff have for my little girl.
