We are open from 8am to 6pm from Monday to Friday, throughout the year – not just conventional school terms.
We close for one week at christmas, one week preceding the bank holiday weekend in August and all public bank holidays.
While the daily routines at the Nursery are naturally play-centred, the Early Years Foundation Stage and the Four Early Years Themes lie at the heart of what the children are encouraged to achieve.
In any event, play carries enormous importance and value in its own right. To a young child, work can be play and play can be work: both are largely an attitude of mind.
Purposeful play develops a child’s imagination, creativity, language, problem-solving ability, physical skills and independence.
At The Leading Edge, children are given the freedom to explore and discover through play, within a structured and prepared environment, indoors and out.
