Our nursery and early years programme aims to provide a warm, safe and nurturing environment to help children and their families through working together.
We strongly believe that everyone in our local community has a part to play, which is why the aspiration to become a child-friendly city is at the very heart of our programme. We strive to ensure our children are heard, engaged and respected at home, at nursery, and in their communities – wherever they are in Leeds and whenever decisions are made that affect them. This in turn sends the right message about how important their welfare is to us and how important they are to our future.
Childrens Nursery Harehills Leeds
Our early years provision provides 15 hours of free pre-school nursery for children aged 2 to 4 years of age. Our bilingual, fully trained staff have a great knowledge and understanding of the local community’s needs. This has helped establish our reputation for delivering reliable quality childcare.
In 2018 an Ofsted report awarded us ‘good with outstanding elements’. Shantona provides help, support and encourages families to participate in their children's learning and understanding the development of their children’s needs.
‘Children thrive in this vibrant and highly stimulating nursery, managers and staff provide an extremely inclusive environment that highly values and celebrates children’s culture and diversity’ (OFSTED,2018)
