WELCOME TO LEYF HOME LEARNING

At LEYF, we recognise the vital role that high-quality Home Learning plays in your child’s development. Home Learning is one of the seven strands in LEYF's pedagogy for good reason: what parents do with their children matters, and research proves this. Here, you can find activities for you to do with your baby, toddler and pre-school child, and advice about healthy eating. We hope you enjoy our videos, recipes and top tips!

Raising Readers’ Book of the month

Giraffes Can’t Dance by Giles Andreae has an empowering message for children about the value of believing in themselves. The story provides opportunities for children to discuss the importance of being kind to others. The dialogic reading approach will help support your child to enjoy and be confident in reading books. This practice encourages adults to use the pictures along with prompts and cues to actively engage children in the process of reading.
