Making the world a better place for future generations

Introducing Green LEYF

At LEYF, we are dedicated to preserving the planet for generations to come. We are already committed to reducing waste and plastic in our nurseries, but we could be doing more. That's where Green LEYF comes in.

Green LEYF is an organisational commitment that looks at educating our nurseries and the communities they inhabit about sustainability and the environment, and how to be as 'green-minded' as possible.

Eco-champions

A sustainability lead and 8 eco-champions have been appointed across all areas of LEYF (teachers, deputies, chefs, managers and central office) to implement and support Green LEYF. They will be an integral part of the accreditation process for nurseries, and will also participate in the first internal cohort of the newly created Level 4 Qualification - endorsed by CACHE - 'Developing Sustainability in the Early Years'.

Green LEYF initiatives

With the support of our sustainable partners, we have been able to introduce green initiatives across our nurseries. These look at the different ways we can increase our environmental footprint across all LEYF settings, many of which are in central London. These include:

These include:

  • Wormeries
  • Composters
  • Eco-bricks
  • Mushroom growing
  • Aquaponics
  • ... and many more!

Sustainable Partners

The day-to-day implementation of Green LEYF wouldn’t be possible without the support of our Sustainable Partners.
