Here at Leaps & Bounds we aim to take advantage of the teachable moments that happen every day by encouraging the intellectual, creative, social, emotional and physical growth and development of our children and to ensure a lifelong commitment to learning.
We believe that an inclusive, stable, safe, healthy and comfortable environment is crucial to a child’s growth and allows them to develop and flourish through exploratory and imaginative play. This is whilst being supported by staff who expand and challenge their learning, helping children to become independent learners who can think critically and problem solve.
We contribute to building and sustaining our community by providing a high quality and innovatively delivered childcare service which respond to the needs of individual children and their families as well as the community as a whole.
We will work closely with families to provide a caring co-operative family orientated Preschool environment which promotes cultural values and supports positive relationships and respectful interactions.
We provide an inclusive, safe and supportive learning environment for children aged 2 – 4 years , in which the contribution of all children is valued and where racial, disability and gender stereotyping are challenged. We use materials which reflect diversity and are free from discrimination and stereotyping.
Our Preschool is situated in Ellel Village Hall in the semi rural village of Galgate, just off the A6 and 5 mins from J33 of the M6.
We are very lucky to ‘live’ in a wonderful new building surrounded by green fields which we are able to use for many of our outdoor activities.
We have our own dedicated Preschool rooms in the Village Hall complete with our own toilets, kitchen and office area, making the Preschool a self contained unit within the Hall.
