Meet The Team
Third in Charge/Room Leader
The statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) focuses on how your child learns and what adults can do to encourage that learning. It identifies three prime areas, which are considered to be fundamental through the EYFS, and four specific areas which include essential skills and knowledge and provide important contexts for learning.
Ongoing assessment plays a very important part in recognising and understanding what a child needs. It involves practitioners observing your child to understand their level of achievement, interests and learning styles.

There is no word to sum this nursery up it is amazing. All the staff and management are incredible and very friendly and easy to approach. The communication to parents is great,I know exactly what my daughter has done and whats she’s eaten and whats she’s enjoyed playing with. My daughter settled in very quickly and she loves going to nursery. Her confidence has grown soooo much.i highly recommend Leaps and Bounds nursery.
Absolutely amazing nursery, my son was at a different nursery to begin with which was not good, and he went backwards with developing. Since being at leaps and bounds he is now thriving, the staff are incredible, the security is excellent. I feel happy knowing my son is safe and well looked after and most of all loves being there definitely recommend to everyone

Honestly can’t thank leaps and bounds enough! My son moved hear just after he was 2 from a different nursery that he didn’t like and the difference in him coming here was incredible! 2 and a half years later he is about to move on to school and I will honestly miss everyone looking him. I trust them without any doubt and will be sad to say goodbye. Thank you so much for teaching and caring for my boy the way you ALL have!!
