Head of Nursery
The Nursery years are a magical time for any little boy or girl. Their world grows enormously and it can be daunting at first, for both your child and you, but very quickly their sense of wonder and natural curiosity joyfully and voraciously emerge.
Our Nursery, first and foremost, is a safe and caring, homely environment where the wellbeing of every child is our utmost concern. Second only to that is our dedication to their rounded development, and testament to this is the advanced level at which they join Reception, compared to those without the Hydesville headstart.
What do we offer?
Excellent Nursery provision for children from the age of three.
Children can join us as soon as they have celebrated their third birthday and almost all progress into our Reception when they are 4+.
Children with autumn birthdays will spend almost two years with us, joining Reception just prior to their 5th birthday. Children who turn three in July or August enjoy our nursery for just over a year. Wherever their birthday falls, you can be confident that your child will have an exceptional start to their educational journey.
