A New Adventure
Meanwood Valley Preschool opened its doors February 2019. We were previously located on Burton Crescent Headingley but due to flood damage in January 2018 we had to move.
Luckily we are still allowed to refer to our Outstanding OFSTED report received October 2018. Please be assured our practice as described relocated with the move.
Meanwood Valley Preschool is located in Meanwood Community Centre on Steinbeck Avenue.
This location provides an enviable opportunity to be part of of the bustling wider Community of Meanwood. The site boasts an open plan classroom style provision and an enormous natural outdoor area.
We have a strong partnership with Leeds Community Spaces with whom we have shared values.

Spanish at Meanwood Valley Preschool
Children who attend Meanwood Valley Preschool have the opportunity to learn Spanish as part of our daily programme.Spanish is embedded into our daily routines and the children enjoy learning new words, songs and listening to Spanish stories and music.
Observations and Tapestry
Your child will have a learning journey week every term.
We will let you know when it is your child’s turn and ask for your opinions. Staff will make detailed observations of your child and monitor their progress during their time with us. We will share this information with you by uploading the observations onto Tapestry. Shortly, you will receive login details for tapestry.
Tapestry allows you to post things as well. It is fantastic when parents and carers post about their child because it allows us to discuss the experiences with the child and to develop any interests they have at home. You can post about anything that interests your child including family celebrations, day trips out or any achievements.
Settling into the Preschool room
We have a flexible attitude towards settling in and we are keen to work with parents and carers. If you have any concerns about how your child may settle, please speak to a member of staff and we can discuss the best ways to support your child.
Snacks and Lunch
We provide a mid-morning and mid afternoon snack every day, including fruit, breadsticks, crackers or a biscuit and a choice of milk or water to drink.
If your child is staying for lunch, please provide a named and healthy packed lunch, we will provide a drink of milk or water.
I enjoy working with children , parents and staff to make them as happy as possible at Meanwood Valley Preschool. Michele Cobb
