About Us

Harrietsham Preschool is an established term-time setting, temporarily based in Hollingbourne village. 

We are a registered Charity serving the local community and its workforce.  

Our Preschool is set within the grounds of Hollingbourne Village hall and benefits from a large grass outdoor area.

We provide stimulating activities and exciting experiences for children from 2 to 5 years old.  

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and record securely via Baby's Days to share with our families.

Our energetic, qualified and experienced team are all proud of the nurturing and warm service we provide.

Great care is taken to tailor our service to meet the individual needs of each and every family.  

Curriculum & Learning Stories

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage, which is the national curriculum for children from birth to Year 1 of Primary school. As we plan activities to promote a child’s development, we observe and record their progress using a digital Learning Story called Baby's Days. Parents and carers are given a secure login to gain access to this system, which also records attendance, medical notes, accident forms and their child’s photo gallery. Parents and carers are strongly encouraged to contribute to this by adding their own photos and observations, which helps to build a holistic view of the child.

Uniform

We have an optional uniform at Harrietsham Preschool which includes t-shirts, jumpers and fleeces. This helps the children to know that it’s a 'school day' and also protects their other clothes, as we do get very messy sometimes!  We have introduced a new green uniform from September 2018.  Please go to our Useful Links page to purchase your uniform.

Lunch

We provide healthy morning snacks for every child and each child attending the afternoon session brings a packed lunch from home. We give all our new families an information sheet about suitable contents for a healthy lunch box, this includes a strict exclusion of any nut or chocolate products.  Please take a look at our Healthy Eating page for healthy lunch ideas.
