St Thomas Pre-School offers affordable, high-quality education in the city centre. Our small, 'home-from-home' environment is what makes us really special. We take a maximum of 12 children per session and work closely with families to develop the unique gifts and abilities of each child. We are supported by St Thomas Church and led by a primary school teacher and a committed team of childcare professionals. We offer funded places for all 3-4 year olds and for eligible 2 year olds.  Look at our website or follow us on facebook for more information, or call us to arrange a visit!

Rainbow Kids Childminding
(ofsted registered)
Victoria Taylor, Dunkenshaw Crescent, LA1 4LQ
I love childminding because I enjoy the opportunities for real world learning. I am a master picnic-maker and we go to the beach, the woods, the park to learn. I think it’s where children learn best. Like other childcare settings, I use the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) to monitor children’s learning and I use an app called Kinderly to record the children’s development and stay in touch with parents, writing diaries about what we’ve done today, and it gives you a place to write questions/comments you want to remember before pickup time.  The emphasis in my setting is on play and fun.  In July, my husband will also start working for Rainbow Kids Childminding, increasing our capacity.  As well as daytime care, I also do school drop-offs and school pick-ups for children at Moorside Primary School and have a separate area where the bigger kids can get arty or do role play games away from the little ones if they prefer some peace and quiet.
We accept childcare vouchers and offer funded places for all 3-4 year olds and for eligible 2 year olds, and are experienced working with SEN children.  Message, email or ring to arrange a visit.
