WIN! Free childcare for a year with LEYF
To celebrate 110 years of great childcare, the London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) is giving away FREE childcare for a year to one lucky family. For a chance to win, parents need to register online at www.leyf.org.uk/JOF131 visit a nursery and complete an application form before March 31, 2013.
As the UK’s most well-known childcare social enterprise, LEYF was founded by Margaret Horn MBE as the “Westminster Health Society” in 1903. Judged ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted, the award-winning nursery group now employs over 350 staff and continues to inspire future generations of children and parents with its progressive approach to childcare.
Providing high quality day care and parenting support to a diverse mix of families across six London boroughs, LEYF helps more than 2,000 children each year enjoy the benefits of a great Early Years education in its 24 community Children’s Centre and workplace nurseries.
June O’Sullivan, LEYF CEO comments: “We are thrilled to be celebrating 110 years of great childcare; bigger and more importantly stronger than ever before.
“We have always been known to push the boundaries when it comes to protecting the interests of children and parents, and this just means we can bring our distinct brand of childcare to even more families, especially those that need it most.
How parents can enter in three simple steps:
1. Find your nearest LEYF nursery and register online at www.leyf.org.uk/JOF131
2. Arrange to visit a participating LEYF Nursery before March 31 2013
3. Complete and return a nursery application for their child before 31st March
As part of the main celebration event in June, the registered charity also plans to bury a time capsule at its Marsham Street office where it opened its very first community nursery in 1930.
“The time capsule will contain examples of family life as we know it today,” explains June, “along with thoughts from staff, parents and children on how families might look 100 years from now – with all the fun, fears and challenges that’s likely to represent.”
