Thank goodness the weather has changed – it makes everyone feel so happy doesn’t it? But now the sun is out don’t forget to make sure your child has sun cream on before they come to Pre-School. If they are staying all day we will ‘top up’ at lunch time for the afternoon. Remember your sun hat too!

For the next two weeks our topic is ‘People who help us’ the home corner has been changed from the travel agents to the ‘Greenacre Hospital’. We have a few people visiting us to talk about their jobs. We still have a few spaces so if you work in an industry that helps people and have half an hour to spare would you like to come in and talk to our children? Just speak with a member of staff and let them know.
At the sharp end
Greenacre Pre-School is managed by Julie Thornton and staffed by a team of eight. The experienced caring staff are dedicated to making children, happy, safe and ready for school.
Staff are fully qualified to level 3 or above in childcare and all have had enhanced DBS checks. Qualified first aiders are available at each session.
We offer a ratio of 1 staff member to 5 children, which far exceeds the Ofsted recommendation of 1 to 8 allowing staff to spend more time with the children.
The Pre-School committee
Greenacre Pre-School is a voluntary committee with a Chairperson, Treasurer and Secretary and other committee members recruited from Pre-School parents. This gives them the opportunity to have an input into the further development and progress of the Pre-School. The committee can be contacted by email
Registered Charity: 1075211
In November 2014 Ofsted judged Greenacre Pre-school as a Good provison with areas of Outstanding. We are extremely proud of this achievement.
Leeds Quality Assurance Scheme
In June 2009 Greenacre Pre-School successfully achieved a silver, followed by three gold awards, in the Leeds Quality Assurance scheme. It is in recognition of having the highest standards in terms of organisation, environment, overall ethos and the experiences we provide for the children in our care.
Pre-School Learning Alliance
As members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance Greenacre Pre-School has access to a library of resources and support from this educational charity.
Equality & Diversity
The Pre-School is open to all members of the community and we are committed to providing equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice for all children and families.
