Stondon Stompers, established since 1971, provide morning and afternoon sessions, Monday to Friday during term time (please see sessions section for more detail).
We are located in the Village Hall, Hillside Road, Lower Stondon, adjacent to Stondon Lower School.
Our emphasis is on learning through play, enabling children to build on their understanding of the world through exploration of a wide number of different activities. As well as a wealth of resources available to the children, we also offer cooking and music sessions (in addition to daily music/singing during the session) and the opportunity for children to grow their own flowers and vegetables in our small garden area.
In addition the children are invited to take part in our themed mufti days, annual Sports Day, Christmas concert and end of year concert to say goodbye to their friends as they leave us to go to their respective Lower Schools. We continue to develop relationships with the local Lower Schools, but have strong links to Stondon Lower School with the children being able to use the Reception Class play area, the school's library and recreational. We believe that the opportunities for our children to familiarise themselves with the Lower School help to make their transition into full-time education much easier.
We are a registered charity, reference number 1044402, and are a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. We are managed by Charity Trustees (Management Committee), made up of volunteers.
We are an Ofsted inspected group, registration number 219300, and at our last inspection (December 2012) were judged to be Good with Outstanding elements. The full report can be found in the Reports section of our website.
