It’s our last week at Pre-School before the summer holiday. We will be getting the tissues out as we say a sad farewell to our little ones who are moving onto the next stage of their educational career. We are so proud of the achievements our children have made during their short time with us. They have developed so many skills, sharing, building relationships, talking confidently, mark making, having fun… so in the words of Nanny McPhee, our job is done!

It’s only two weeks now until we break up for the summer holidays. It will be a sad time for us as we will be saying cheerio to our children who are moving onto ‘big’ school. We have been busy meeting their new teachers and writing reports, but we hope their last days with us will be filled with fun. Next week we are having our teddy bears picnic, watch out for our newsletter giving you the information that you need.
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.
We are now taking applications for September 2018. If you would like your child to attend please download an enrolment form or call 0113 8879695 to arrange a visit.
