FROM September, The Froebelian School, Horsforth will welcome all children from the age of two, marking a new chapter in a Froebelian education.

Headteacher Anna 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.

“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.”

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

There are 20 funded places available for September 2024, subject to an approval of a material change.
