St Leonard's Centre












Term time only

My second daughter is just about to leave St Leonard’s for Yr R and genuinely, you won’t find a better pre-School, it is totally amazing. Both my daughters have been so happy there, they are such a kind community and they really support their early developmental goals and provide outstanding advice on targets etc. The activities they do are awesome... and all the staff are so caring and professional. Genuinely could not say a bad word about the playschool and am gutted that I won’t have a child there any more!
