The LEYF Pedagogy: A vision for our children

The LEYF Pedagogy Ropes represent how teachers at LEYF lead learning to provide the very best outcomes for our children. Each of the 7 strands of the Pedagogy is based on a wide range of research and made of many learning threads that interweave to deliver excellent teaching and wonderful experiences for our children.

Each strand needs all the others. Just like a rope, the more learning threads that run through each strand the stronger the rope and the better the teaching and learning that goes on in our nurseries.

Similar to synaptic connections in a child’s brain, all learning is strengthened through repetition and application. LEYF teachers understand this and ensure that multiple strands of our pedagogy run through all play and activities in our nurseries.

Every child has a right to the rich interwoven learning opportunities vital for their development and key to extending their potential.

Strengthening Children’s Educational Success

The LEYF Pedagogy is reflective of our social enterprise approach. Each element of the
Pedagogy is designed to strengthen children’s social and cultural capital through language, social
opportunities, cultural experiences and friendships.

The 7 elements of the Pedagogy are designed to strengthen children’s educational success by widening
their network of social relationships and expanding their cultural horizons. So, just by attending a LEYF
Nursery, children build social capital through the friendships they make with people from all different
backgrounds and their involvement in the local community.

Their cultural capital is expanded through a rich language and literacy approach as well as trips to the
theatre, museums, parks and libraries.
