"Education is the most powerful weapon which   you can use to change the world". Nelson Mandela
2-4 year olds


Our 2-4 year olds are learning the skills to communicate, socialise and play with and alongside other children.  Learning to interact with others, building relationships and turn taking are key to being successful at school.  The children are able to practice, independent skills such as, pouring their own drinks, toilet training, and practicing dressing themselves, all at their own pace and with support from our practitioners.

The characteristics of effective learning are greatly used to support all aspects of learning and development.

Rising 5's 

Rising 5's is our special preschool session.  One session per week, specifically for children who are due to go to 'big school' the following September.  The session has a slightly more formal learning, with activities such as getting changed for PE, sitting at group activities and thinking critically.  We spend some time at Hellingly School, reading stories in the Reception class, this particularly supports the children with transition.  A small taster for homework will be bringing an item in for show and tell, and books are sent home to share with the family.

Breakfast Club

Our breakfast club is available for children 2-11 years, the morning begins at 7.45am with cereals and toast for breakfast.  The children are then able to chose their activities.  Children attending Hellingly School will be taken via 'walking crocodile' into school, whilst preschool children will begin their daily activities on site.
