Hedgehog Nursery

Take a Tour of our Early Years Setting

We offer 52 sessional places for children commencing the term after their third birthday. Your child will be able to access 15 hours across five mornings or five afternoons (depending on space) during term time.


  • Our session times are 8.30- 11.30 and 12.15- 3.15

Children learn through play and grow in confidence and self-esteem as happy members of a group.  We aim to provide a safe, caring and stimulating environment and are committed to fostering supportive relationships between home and Nursery.


Activities and experiences are planned around the seven areas of learning and development which guide the staff in supporting your child’s progress.

  • Communication and Language

  • Physical Development

  • Personal, social and emotional development

  • Literacy

  • Mathematics

  • Understanding the world

  • Expressive arts and design


Each child has their own Key person whose role is to create a consistent and trusting relationship with the family so the child can feel secure with themselves and others.


We ensure that all children have equal access to diverse and rich curriculum. The key person does this by observing, engaging with and extending children's interests.
