The Story of LEYF: Changing the World One Child at a Time
  • Devonport Guildhall, Ker Street, Devonport, Plymouth PL1 4EL

Save event

London Early Years Foundation began life as the Westminster Health Society in 1903, addressing extreme poverty by focusing on child and maternal health. 

They opened their first nursery during the second world war. Since becoming a social enterprise in 2006, LEYF has become the UK’s largest social sector childcare provider, operating 26 nurseries and providing high quality childcare to 3,000 children and has continued to support disadvantaged families; 46% of the children who attend do so through free or subsidised places. 

June will tell the story of how LEYF has grown, and developed  its business model, whilst holding onto the founders’ intention to change the world one child at a time.
