About Us


Started in late 1969 in the name of Stone & District Playgroup with about 10 children. It had always been situated in Stone Village Hall.

Over the years, it has seen many changes and gone from strength to strength and in 1995 its name was changed to Stone & District Pre School


In September 2001, the Pre-school was taken over privately by Mrs Lyn Meads and Mrs Janet Brooks.


We registered for nursery vouchers in 1997 and we welcomed four year olds onto vouchers. Three year old funding became available in April 2000.

In April 2003, the Pre-school changed its name to Stone & Fairford Leys Pre School.        

In June 2003 we opened our second Pre-school on Fairford Leys.

In March 2014 we made our most exciting and biggest commitment to date with the decision to lease our own child care premises in Stone. This meant that in June 2014 we moved our setting from Stone Village Hall to our current setting, Maple House, 74 Oxford Road, a provision that provides a much more child friendly learning environment for our pre-school children. It also provided us with the opportunity to expand our business to include a breakfast/ after school club and a holiday club.

We opened our breakfast and after-school club in September 2014 for children from reception age to school year 6.

In July 2022 we changed our name and status, from Stone & Fairford Leys Preschool to

Stone & Fairford Leys Childcare Limited

Companies House Number: 13851750
