Getting the job done!


Premier Advisory has worked with LEYC on a number of projects relating to Childcare Sufficiency Assessments and EYFS business planning and development. They have proved to be a knowledgeable, flexible and results oriented partner. The results speak for themselves; more than 500 new F.E.E childcare places created, average new business income of £42k per setting (in one term), 37 new School based nurseries opened and a number of EYFS businesses saved from closure.

The Place Group team have been benefitting from LEYC's expertise in the field of childcare and early years since 2018. This involves LEYC undertaking early years themed business modelling projects and supporting over 300 school/education sector clients with nursery and childcare start-ups. LEYC's work is always detailed and comprehensive, with time taken to communicate to Place Group and our clients the sector-wide solutions. Essentially, the service LEYC offers has helped maintain both thriving individual early years and childcare settings and contributed meaningfully to our local authority clients creating over 500 new F.E.E funded places supporting the sufficiency of high-quality provision.

David Noble – Associate Director, Place Group Ltd

As a group of eight state funded primary Free Schools, we are keen to add nursery provision to a number of our schools. Being introduced to LEYC and Jose has realised this ambition very quickly, in a well-considered professional manor, supporting our schools. The first nursery was opened within five months, with space set up, staff recruited, financial modelling secure and policies and procedures in place. We are deeply impressed by Jose's open and knowledgeable manor, that took so much risk out of the process for us and he is an absolute delight to work with as well. His communication is first class and reassuring at every point. Cannot recommend LEYC and Jose more, if it is set up or strategic advice; all early years provision bases can be covered with a highly likelihood of success, as it was for us.

It is an absolute pleasure to work with LEYC and Jose who provides ad-hoc business support to private childcare providers in London Borough of Hounslow. His knowledge of running a successful childcare business is extensive and he really cares about both sides of the coin – the service being provided to parents and carers and the sustainability of childcare providers. Jose is professional whilst being compassionate and enthusiastic all at the same time. His support and advice is, and continues to be, invaluable to our Service
