In 2001, I joined the LEYF family and have been at Playhouse Nursery since 2016. We have four amazing gardens for the children to explore. We are a long standing team who are passionate about supporting our children's development. We're well established within the community and parents recommend us to others as well as enrol siblings. My proudest moment was watching a child with SEND take her first steps, even though her parents were told she'd never walk. I believe that every child is like a seed; with the right nurturing and nourishment they will develop into their own person with individual attributes and qualities. No two seeds are the same but they're just as beautiful as the next.
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
