Two Amazing 345 Preschools

345 have two amazing preschools, run by staff with more than 125 years of early years’ experience.

Our Springfield setting within The Grove area of Alexandra Park offers children a beautiful, idyllic backdrop within which to learn and play.

From September 2015 we have merged our two older settings (Church Crescent and Tetherdown sites) into one brand new space on Pages Lane. As with our Springfield setting, we will be able to offer children three hour sessions as well as full day preschool care. Also, the new space will be exclusively ours, with a secure entrance, for peace of mind.

Our Springfield setting received an outstanding grade from a recent OFSTED inspection, making it one of the only non-private preschools in the borough to achieve the highest rating. Rest assured, we will be implementing the same high standards at the new Pages Lane site, so hopefully we can soon be a fully outstanding organisation.

If you would like to read more about us or register your child for either setting, please continue to read and explore our website, or better still, arrange a visit to one of our settings today. 

The company is partially grant-funded by Haringey Council and is run as a ‘not for profit’ charitable organisation by parents who are the trustees of the charity and who share the responsibilities of management and fundraising.

 

345 Preschools’ Aims

  • To provide high quality care and education for pre-school children
  • To work in partnership with parents to help children to learn and develop
  • To add to the life and well-being of its local community
  • To offer children and their parents a service which promotes equality and values diversity

 

Playing Improves Learning

A major way of giving children quality time is with play. Children learn through play and playing with a parent/carer stretches them and gives them special time with a parent which can also lead to improved behaviour. The guidelines given on this special time is as little as 20 minutes a week, but this time is for your child to decide what the two of you do, this then becomes your special fun time together. To sum up, you may spend long hours with your child in the house and if they start playing up when you are working on something else and you can't get anything done, stop what you are doing and try allocating five or ten minutes of special time and this might help.
