About Our Pre School

Leeside Nursery School is a pre-school based in the village of Lee Common near Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. The nursery has been operating since 1983 and at the start of 2012 it was taken over by Melissa Woodford-Smith. Feedback from the parents and Bucks County Council have been consistently positive.

We always strive to offer the very best standard of care for the children who attend. Leeside prides itself on the opportunity to learn through play in a sociable and happy atmosphere. Social skills and independence are encouraged through play, in a caring and sharing environment. Our main aim is to provide a caring environment where the children can develop to their full potential.

We accept children from the age of 2 years.
