Moving on to Nursery/School

At Hardings Pre-School we have good, strong links with our local Primary Schools. Children generally move on to a Nursery class in the September after they are 3 but you can choose for your child to remain at Hardings for their nursery year and then go into Reception class. If you choose for your child to remain at Hardings for their Nursery year we have allocated small group time to do more focused activities around phonics, counting, colours, shapes etc.


Our local feeder schools are Springmead, Watchlyes and Panshanger but we will link up with all schools that our children move on to and invite staff in to the Pre-School to meet the children and view their learning journeys in the Summer term before transition. We use the local Transition Record form to ensure consistency in handing over information to families and other settings.



At the end of the Autumn and Summer terms we have a special "Graduation" celebration for children who are moving on and we invite families to join us for these. All children receive a "Pre-School Diploma" and get to wear our special graduation outfits to celebrate their achievements!
