Our mission statement:


"To provide high quality care and education for children in a fun and stimulating environment. We work in partnership with parents and carers to help children learn and develop with a service that promotes equality and values diversity of each individual child"


Dear Parents/Carers,

We are very excited to announce that we are relocating ‘Hardings Pre-School’ into the Nursery building in the grounds of Springmead Primary School this coming September 2020.

 This move will allow us to continue offering an ‘Outstanding’ 32 place Nursery and Pre-School provision for children aged 2 years to rising 5.  The purpose built and secure building has its own designated garden area, with lots of storage and exciting play and climbing equipment for the children to enjoy and our exclusive use allows longer term security for the setting.

 We will now be able to offer a more flexible approach to childcare including morning, afternoon and full day sessions for families, five days a week.  We will continue to offer 2, 3 and 4 year old funded places and 30 hours childcare for eligible families. We will also be asking you shortly about possible interest in a breakfast club provision going forwards for the children.

Jane and the staff team are very excited about the move this summer and we are confident this is the beginning of a happy and successful partnership at Springmead Primary School.  We will, of course, continue to support our children and families with future transitions into Springmead’s reception class as well as into the other local School nurseries and/or reception classes as we currently do.

 We will be in touch shortly with all our families who have already applied for a nursery place at Springmead for September 2020 to discuss ideal hours and will be asking the rest of our Pre-School families about their preferred days and sessions from September also.  We plan to host an open day to showcase the new building at the end of August 2020.

 If you have any questions in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us on 07910361175 or 07766407317 or to speak to Jane and a member of the team.

 Kindest regards

 Claire Mason and Tina Covill
