This is after Peabody granted a 15-year lease for a brand-new nursery for children up to five years old at The Reach – Peabody’s first development which includes 66 affordable homes. The lease is a key part of our commitment to bring new investment and growth opportunities across our community as part of our long-term programme of regeneration and renewal.
The nursery will be custom built and run by London Early Years Foundation (LEYF), an award-winning charitable social enterprise which provides high-quality Early Years education, particularly to children living in more deprived areas. LEYF will offer both fee-paying and funded spaces. Keen to recruit the very best teachers, LEYF runs its own Training Academy and Apprentice Academy helping staff develop their skills, continue their professional development.
We look forward to the seeing the new nursery — which is expected to open in Spring 2023 — come to life.
