We are delighted to welcome you to Beechtree’s website.

We are an Ofsted registered non-profit early years setting and independent school providing high quality Steiner Waldorf childcare for children under 9.

We recently moved to our new premises on Chapeltown Road, right next door to the Sikh Temple. We are in walking distance from Chapeltown and Roundhay and a short bus-ride away from the City Centre, Headingley, Meanwood.

We are open 8am to 5pm from Monday to Thursday and 8.45am to 1.30pm on Friday during term time.

We currently run 2 Kindergartens for children over 3 years old, a Class One for children older than 7 and run Parent & Child Groups both indoors and outdoors every day of the week for babies and children under 3 years old and their parents/carers.

We provide a welcoming, supportive and nourishing environment for the children and their families.

FEEE funding for children aged 3-5 is available.

Please browse our website for more information and if you have any questions or would like your child to attend our Kindergarten or Parent & Child groups, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

As a non profit organisation, we rely on Fundraising. There are several ways you could help us raise funds for Beechtree and every little bit is very much appreciated.
