One cold February morning a group of teachers and designers quatrefoils looked at a building on the south side of Laurel Lane school. The building was set back from Laurel Lane a single storey , the footprint of the Building was circa.223m2 and was being used as storage unit.
They all met to create a vision and design that would bring life to this drab old building not being used to its maximum potential. That Vision created The Pond a Centre of Excellence for the education of 2 year olds.
The Pond is committed to delivering exceptional early education for two year old children in West Drayton . A purpose built learning zone, run by professionals that understand your child’s needs. Learning experiences will be through imaginative indoor and outdoor play . This combined with structured focused activities and well-trained staff will ensure that all pupils achieve their potential physically, emotionally and academically, from the very beginning of their educational journey.
Once the Vision was in place and with a bit of funding from the Local Authority works began, there were a few false starts but building started, doors went in, floors were laid this week, and Outdoor play equipment started to be installed last week. We’re nearly there and will be ready to show you around in July.
The Pond will accommodate 20 children in a morning session and 20 children in an afternoon session. Watch this space to see the build continue….
