Hixon Preschool offers education and care for children from the age of 2 to 4 years old. We are located at the back of St Peters Primary School and run Monday to Friday, 8:45am to 3:15pm during term time.
The Preschool is Ofsted registered and a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance, from whom we receive much support and information to ensure that we are constantly up to date with new initiatives in the field of preschool education and childcare.
We adhere to all guidelines set by the EYFS framework and have devised policies and procedures such as; Safeguarding, Equality of opportunity and inclusion, to ensure that we follow these at all times. We are a registered charity and have a committee of elected parents who support the staff with the overall day-to-day running of the setting.
Every child comes to Preschool with a unique family background which we are aware of and respect difference in upbringing, religion, language and are committed to work in partnership with parents/carers and other agencies.
The equipment and toys within Preschool will promote equality of opportunity and positive roles for children of all racial, cultural, social backgrounds, gender, and for people with disabilities.
