The children have full and exclusive use of the village hall which has a library, computer access and a flexible array of play equipment, climbing frames and themed table top play zones. We have a kitchen, toilet facilities and an enclosed outdoor play area which we make the most of in the warmer months. The children often enjoy walks in the village and the surrounding area.
We have an experienced and committed staff team who are qualified to ensure that every child is treated as an individual and achieves their potential though the delivery of the Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum. They have experience of supporting children with special educational needs and are skilled at meeting the needs of the younger children who attend. One of the benefits of the community setting is that staff are all local and often build relationships with the children that endure throughout their younger years.
Hickling Pre-school is run by a small team of local people who form the committee. All parents are extended a very warm welcome to join us and we encourage you to get involved so that you have an influence on your child’s pre-school. If you don’t want to join the committee you can still come along to one of our regular meetings and your comments are always welcome.
