Staff Benefits

I've been at LEYF since 2015 and at Soho Community Nursery since 2017. I love being here because our nursery is smack-bang in the middle of central London. We focus on the children’s critical thinking and learning using creativity as a tool. Film making, led by the children, is fast becoming part of our curriculum. We use drama play and fine arts to transform the lives of our children. Like our nursery, I'd describe myself as unique and creative. I am also part of LEYF's Men in Childcare group and I'm proud that we are challenging gender stereotypes in Early Years. I believe that every child is special and has the potential to give something fantastic to our society.


Career Progression

We know it’s our people who make LEYF great. That’s why we value each staff member and offer:

● Pay and conditions above the national average in the nursery sector
● A nurturing, fun and value-led working environment
● An award-winning staff training and development programme
● The opportunity to make a real difference to children’s lives
