From September the Froebelian Family will welcome all children from the age of two, marking a new chapter in a Froebelian education.  The decision follows over 100 years following a successful model from the age of three.

Mrs Coulson said: “I am thrilled to announce that after careful consideration and consultation with parents and staff, we will be offering funded places for two-year-olds at our beautiful school.  This decision is about making our best even better and opening up the opportunities of Froebelian’s ‘Flying Start’ to even more children.

She continued: “I have always been passionate about early years and provision within the school setting. Over my years in education and as an Early Years inspector, I have been privileged to witness young children with access to amazingly qualified staff and beautiful spaces flourish and be challenged appropriately.  This puts Froebelian at the forefront of Prep schools in Leeds and the UK.”

Froebelian Early Years experts, Mrs Giles and Mrs Townend, recently visited Community Playthings in East Sussex, a company that aligns beautifully with Froebelian values in the way they build and create solid wood furniture and play equipment to support children as they play and learn.

Mrs Giles said: “The designs at Community Playthings are intentionally simple and beautiful allowing children the freedom to use their imagination and to develop and grow, which fits perfectly with our Froebel heritage and vision for our exciting new provision for all children from the age of two.”

For the families already at Froebelian, the new facility provides an additional resource and recognises the value of exceptional early years education.

Mrs Coulson concluded: “Every child deserves the best start and we will ensure that we provide just that.”

There are 20 funded places available for September 2024.  Keep a look out on social media for development updates.
