The Hendreds Pre-School meets in purpose-built premises at Snells Hall in East Hendred and provides a safe environment in which children from aged two can thrive and progress.
The staff ratio of one adult to three two year olds and one adult to six children over 3 years old helps to ensure that we meet the individual needs of your child. The staff are highly qualified and experienced; both the manager and her deputy are Level 6 and the other staff members are qualified to Level 3. The manager also holds Early Years Professional Status. All members of staff have up to date First Aid certificates and are regularly trained in Child Protection matters.

The pre-school works in accordance with the newly revised Early Years Foundation Stage and so ensures that the children gain the skills that they need in order to be ready for school.
Key Person System: Each child is allocated a key person who will be your main link with the pre-school and form a supportive relationship with your child to help them settle in and gain the confidence to try activities and socialise with others.
Funding: All 3 and 4 year old children nationally are entitled to 15 hours of funded early education per week. Children who turn 3 between:
1 April – 31 August are eligible for free funding in September
1 September – 31 December are eligible for free funding in January
1 January – 31 March are eligible for free funding in April
Funding is applied for on your behalf from the Local Authority in September, January and April. If your child’s s not yet eligible for funding, you will be required to pay for the sessions until free funding begins. If you attend Hendreds Pre-school for more than 15 hours a week or if you split your hours between two different pre-schools and have more than 15 hours, you will be charged for the extra hours. Please contact the Membership Secretary for further information and fees.
