About Us

Meadows is a small family run Pre School operating under the EYFS and located in the rural village of Harefield in Middlesex. We are early years practitioners and provide quality care for children aged between 2 and 5 years old, and are Ofsted registered for up to 30 children.

The school is situated inside the open park known as Taylors Meadow and we use the building belonging to the local Scout Group. We have a lovely outdoor play area that is completely secure and the play areas are well cared for. We have open green spaces and a play ground with a wiggly path that the children love.

Our gates are kept locked at all times, and any parents or visitors wishing to gain entry need to ring the bell located on the gate for attention. For additional security, we operate CCTV around the building.

Outdoors

We have a huge selection of ride on toys that can be used inside as well as outside and include bikes, tractors, dumper trucks, cars, scooters etc. We have a good selection of bikes suitable for special needs children as well. There are also outdoor playhouses; tents, sand and water play areas, bats, balls, ropes etc. We also have a good selection of outdoor seating suitable for outdoor activities.

There is also a green house (safe plastic construction, not glass) and raised growing beds where the children are encouraged to grow flowers and vegetables. Because the growing beds are raised, they are accessible.
