For parents

Parents play an important role in the work we do at LEYF and building good relationships with them is a key part of our ethos. We know just how important relationships with parents, carers and families are to children’s development.

Food and nutrition

Healthy eating is important at LEYF. Our chefs, trained at our Early Years Chef Academy, understand children’s specific nutritional needs, and how to encourage children to be adventurous in their tastes. We cater for different dietary requirements and allergies.

Working in Early Years is not just a job; it's helping to change a child's life.

Our experiences during early childhood, the time from birth to five years old, unlock potential and literally shape our whole lives. If you’ve got a passion for Early Years, we’d love to hear from you.
