Hormead Hedgehogs Preschool

Our EYFS achieved the EYQS Gold Award in July 2023!

Thank you for considering Hormead Hedgehogs for your childcare needs. We hope that you will find all you need to know on the tabs below and across our website.

In Early Years, we believe that every day is a fun learning day and that learning is all around us. In our Preschool, we have a qualified teacher who works alongside the Reception teacher to ensure that every child has the best possible start in life to fulfil their potential and to ensure that there is continuity and progression. We also pride ourselves on having level 3 trained Early Years Practitioners with a good adult to child ratio. Every adult in Early Years is a key worker and will be responsible for your child's wellbeing and development. We are a friendly and nurturing team that provides a cosy, home from home environment that allows children's early education to flourish.

As part of our Early Years provision, your child will have the opportunity to take part in whole school activities such as: Celebration assemblies, walks around our village and whole school trips. The Preschool children also have their own dedicated Forest School time with our trained Forest School teacher on a Wednesday morning.
