Welcome to Early Years
Leonard Stanley Early Years (previously Leonard Stanley Playgroup pre-2009) has been operating for over 20 years and for the last 16 years on the school site. The links with the school are exceptional and the children who attend the Early Years setting are always made to feel part of the school community. Leonard Stanley Early Years is managed by the Leonard Stanley Primary School Governing Body.
The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum, which became mandatory in 2008 and the subsequent government review which came into force in 2012, ensures that we provide the best possible first steps into education.
Leonard Stanley Early Years provides sessional care for children aged 2 – 5 yrs.
We currently operate Early Years sessions on a:
Monday 9am – 1pm (3+yrs)
Tuesday 9am -12noon or 12:30 – 3pm (mixed aged sessions) or 9am - 3pm (3+yrs)
Wednesday 9am -12noon or 12:30 – 3pm (mixed aged sessions) or 9am - 3pm (3+yrs)
Thursday 9am -12noon or 12:30 – 3pm (mixed aged sessions) or 9am - 3pm (3+yrs)
Friday 9am – 1pm or 9am - 3pm (3+yrs)
We are registered to accept 22 children per session.
We plan our sessions to reflect the child’s learning, we observe where the children’s main interests are and extend their learning by planning activities that will enhance their thinking and give new experiences.
We have a very experienced qualified team of staff who are committed to ensuring a safe, welcoming and stimulating environment for the youngest children within the school. We are just as passionate about welcoming parents into the setting, if your child is going to be settled and happy, then parents must be to.
