HELMDON ACORNS

PRE-SCHOOL

Register Now For Autumn 2017

(limited vacancies)

Helmdon Acorns

We are registered to accept up to 26 children from 2 years until they start primary school and operate from HELMDON ACORNS PRE-SCHOOL, Hintons Close, Helmdon, NN13 5QP. Our new building was completed in December 2010 and comprises a bright open-plan playroom, kitchen with low-level worktops for the children's cookery sessions, purpose-built children's WCs and ancillary staff area. Outside there is a fantastic space which includes an all-weather canopy to allow the children to play outside however bad the weather, a large grassed area with play mound and tunnel and a patio with steps for the children to use as a stage or however they want! There is also a vegetable and fruit garden as well as a general digging area. The children really love their treehouse with climbing wall and slide. At the rear of the school is our own enclosed woodland area which we use every week for Forest School sessions.

We follow the EYFS with the emphasis on learning through play but supplemented by adult led activities such as gardening, cooking, music and physical multi skills sessions.

We are open as follows:

Monday to Friday term-time only

 

Morning sessions:

  9:00 - 12:00

Lunch club

12:00 - 12:30

Afternoon sessions

12:30 -   3:30

 

Children may attend for any combination of the above, as long as we have space available.

We are a registered charity managed by a voluntary committee of parents. Children aged 3 years and over are entitled to 15 hours per week free education for the calendar block after their third birthday. Some children aged 2 years are also entitled to 15 years funded by NCC. Fees are payable for some children aged two years, or those enrolled for more than 15 hours per week. We set the fees at a level merely to cover costs and ensure that we can continue to fulfil our charitable aims. Full details are on our
website.

We employ a team of dedicated staff: Liz Hart, qualified Early Years Teacher, is Setting Manager, Kerri Seymour is  Supervisor, assisted by Kim Sadler and Susanna Morgan (Deputy Supervisors), Zofija Wilson, Gina Rayner, Victoria Webster, Emma Houghton and Rebecca Fletcher.

We are lucky to be located in a beautiful village setting which gives us the opportunity for many excursions - the children are taken on walks around the village looking at animals or seasonal changes, to visit the Primary School when there are special performances, or up to the Parish Church.
