Opening Times

We are open -

8.45am to 3.15pm, Monday to Friday 

(term time only)

Morning session - 8.45 am to 11.45 am 

Lunch club - 11.45am to 12.15pm

Afternoon session - 12.15 pm to 3.15 pm

On Thursdays, we also run a Forest School day each week (available to children in their final Pre-school year only).

We will always try to be flexible where possible and it helps us to know as far ahead as possible if you will be changing the hours your child attends, as we can then offer available slots for other children.

Please note that despite our LE16 postcode, we are in Northamptonshire.  Therefore our term dates follow those of Clipston Primary School and are often different to Leicestershire term dates

External services available

Please note that if you are requiring longer or 'wrap around' hours for childcare, Stepping Stones is lucky enough to have two fully registered childminders serving our pre-School. Both can offer a before-and-after pick-up service/afternoon care and know the Pre-school well. They both come highly recommended by the parents (and children!) who use their services.

Please feel free to contact them directly or you can ask a member of our team to introduce you.
