Early Years

Our Kindergarten is located in our separate nursery building right in the heart of the school. We provide a rural home-from-home environment in the Worcestershire countryside for your children to begin their early years education.

We invite you to come and see our nursery environment for yourself. Please give us a call on 01905 451292 or email hawford@ksw.org.uk

early years environment

Outdoor learning is at the heart of everything we do; our nursery environment even brings elements of the outdoors inside. The homely theme continues throughout the nursery with a large-scale playhouse where children learn transferable skills allowing them to work out for themselves, the many different ways in which tasks can be completed.

Award for Learning outside the classroom

Recently, King's Hawford was awarded a Gold Award from The Council for Learning Outside the Classroom, recognising the school as a leader in ensuring that all pupils have access to frequent, continuous and progressive learning outside the classroom. Find out more about one aspect of our outdoor learning on our Forest School page. 

Early YEars nutrition

Our youngest Nursery children are served their meal in the Kindergarten. At morning break, we offer fruit to everyone, along with milk or water. Those children staying after school are given a sandwich, cake or ‘treat’ to provide additional energy at the end of the day.

 

EARLY YEARS TRANSITION TO RECEPTION

The Nursery transition to Reception class presentation evening is usually held in the January preceding the move to reception class in the following September. This is an opportunity for parents to meet the staff, learn about the education style provided at Hawford and to ask questions to the staff involved with their child's care.
