A Message from Lesley…

As founding director of Children’s Corner Childcare, I offer you a warm welcome.

I set up my first nursery in 1995 when I was unable to find a nursery that I was confident could give our first son, Joe, a friendly and safe learning environment.

My previous career as a police officer had given me a real insight into life but nothing prepared me for being totally overwhelmed with love when our own children arrived. I knew it had to be a very special place with dedicated people who I could trust to care for our boys. I have always run the business as a mum first. My husband Allan and our three sons are all directors of the company.  Mattie works within the company; Joe and Charlie take a keen interest, contributing a young perspective to the business.  

We are delighted and proud to have 11 sites across Leeds caring for over 1600 children each week. Our team strives to provide a high quality early years education and to nurture a lifelong love of learning.

We are very aware of the challenges faced by parents today, and this is one of the reasons we introduced our Family Time Programme – take a look at our FTP page. Our approach aims to make the nursery experience as easy, relaxed and enjoyable for both you and your child by providing everything your child needs and the little extras to help you.

We would love to show you around our nursery or out of school club and we hope you will offer us the opportunity to join you in giving your child the very best start in life.

For now, enjoy every minute because – like everyone always says, time really does pass so quickly! 

Warmest wishes
