Since the 1960s, when Ejby was a small village with a population of only a few hundreds, the village has grown rapidly and is now surrounded by residential areas of single-family detached homes and terraced houses.

The first privately run kindergarten in Denmark, Gemsevejens Kindergarten (Danish: Gemsevejens Børnehus), which was outsourced to ISS A/S in 1998, is located in Ejby.[2] Today the kindergarten is operated by the TitiBo group.

Ejby church, a typical Danish village church from the 12th century, is located on the western outskirts of the old original village.
