Nursery School - Harry Hedgehogs

Harry Hedgehogs class can accommodate up to 16 children age between three and five years. The staff to child ratio is 1: 8. We always have to members of staff on duty.

The aim is to prepare the children for school. Thus the day is more structured with the balance of adult lead activities and child initiate tasks. We used topics as a stimulus for activities and base the focus of learning on the following areas of development.

  • Personal, social and emotional development.

  • Communication, a language and literacy.

  • Mathematical development.

  • Knowledge and understanding of the world.

  • Creative development.

  • Physical development.

In common with many local infant schools, we use the Oxford Reading Tree as part of our literacy programme. The children are encouraged to share a book once a week with a member of staff. We investigate a number and a letter everyday.

We follow the government guidelines for the foundation stage curriculum.

We hold parent evenings termly (three times per year.)

This gives you the opportunity to discuss your child's progress.
