Boosting access to affordable early childhood education

The Duke of Westminster visited Katherine Bruce Nursery in Queen’s Park, London to discuss a new five-year partnership between the Westminster Foundation and the London Early Years Foundation (LEYF) that will help increase access to high-quality, affordable early childhood education and care.

The partnership, which will see the Westminster Foundation make donations to LEYF totalling £750,000, will provide vulnerable children and their families in Westminster with access to an extra 15 hours of early childhood education and care a week. 

The funding will support LEYF’s ‘Doubling Down’ programme in their nurseries across the borough.

The Foundation’s funding will support 125 extra children and their families with improved learning and development opportunities, as well as access to more meals during the nursery day, including a healthy hot lunch.
