About Us

Hartford Preschool


We have experience working with children aged between 2yrs and 4yrs. We understand the importance of encouraging children's learning through play by providing many opportunities for children to explore, ask questions, enjoy activities and socialise with other children in a safe and clean environment whilst supporting equality and diversity. Experiences are always varied so that children can enjoy and explore different materials and resources, with everything easily accessible allowing them to follow their own interests. Skilled staff can then help them build upon these experiences. We provide a balance of adult-led activities, such as stories and “circle-time”, with child-initiated play, ensuring children can take the initiative in their own learning.

Children are offered a wide range of activities  to give experience of number, shape and colour, to strengthen manipulative skills, and foster imaginative and cooperative play. A great choice of construction materials, sand and water play, play dough, and opportunities for activities with glue, paint, and some cooking activities are offered. There is a generous supply of books and a cosy corner for stories, rhymes and conversation. 



Our Aim is:


To enhance the development and education of children under statutory school age in a parent-involving community-based group.


To provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment


To work within a framework which ensures equality of opportunity for all children and their families.



We offer your child:


  • Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum based learning  leading to approved learning outcomes.


  • Individual care and attention made possible by a high ratio of adults to children.


  • Fun and friendship with children and other adults.


  • The support of a personal keyperson.


  • Opportunities for you and your family to be directly involved, in the activities of the group and in your own child’s progress.


We place a huge emphasis on getting the settling in process right so your child can get the most out of their time with us.

We are always led by you and your child and what YOU feel comfortable with.  As we’ve mentioned, we believe that a successful settling in is the cornerstone of your child’s time here so we will work with you to make sure your child starts with the best foundation for enjoying their time at Hartford Preschool.
