MEANWOOD VALLEY PRE-SCHOOL
Meanwood enrols children from 24 months
We have a few places remaining this year
We relocated our second setting Meanwood Valley Preschool to Meanwood Community Centre in February 2019. As a sister setting to Headingley Preschool, Meanwood Valley Preschool shares the same culture, ethos and values including drawing inspiration from the Reggio Emilia approach.
The Reggio Emilia Approach is an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education which values the child as strong, capable and resilient, rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it.
This approach acknowledges parents as children’s first teachers, continued by our experienced and caring staff, and enhanced by the preschool environment, which is regarded as the third teacher.
We ensure that children are able to gain real skills for life by working with adults in a collaborative way :
· Regular cooking activities
· Being in touch with nature
· Constructing things using real tools
· Empowering children to learn through enquiry, imagination and curiosity
We aim to work together with you to best meet your child’s individual needs, and to sew the seeds of lifelong learners
