Wendover Pre-School

Welcome to Wendover Pre-School

Are you looking for a family focused, child centred Pre-school that offers opportunities for children to prepare for the school years ahead?

When you take the big step of sending your little ones to Pre-school we understand that is an emotional time for everybody. At Wendover Pre-school the wellbeing of the whole family is important to us.  We work closely with parents and carers to offer a warm and loving environment and to form secure relationships that will enable children to grow and flourish.

As a nurturing and caring Early Years setting, which is run by a fully qualified, passionate and enthusiastic team, we aim for all children to feel valued, respected and cherished.  We are devoted to giving our children every opportunity to develop a love of learning and the life skills necessary to grow spiritually and morally.

  • Our sessions run from 9am – 12 pm, term time only for 38 weeks of the year and our high staff to children ratio enables us to offer that home from home atmosphere in which children flourish.
  • We are able to offer funded sessions for children who are 3, in the term following their birthday, for more information please see Hours & Fees.
  • We accept payment by Childcare Vouchers.
  • We offer free flow sessions with open access to a covered outside area.
  • We have an open admissions policy and welcome all families regardless of gender, culture, religion and needs.

We offer free flow sessions with open access to a covered outside area – thanks to The Harpenden Building Society who are the kind sponsors of our all weather canopy installed by Able Canopies.

About Us

We are a non profit making setting with charitable status. We are members of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, a national organisation formed to support groups that cater for the under fives. The Pre-school is run by a committee of volunteer parents and we actively involve parents in the decision making process at the Pre-school.

The Pre-school provides a safe and stimulating environment for children allowing the opportunity to join with other children and adults to “Love, Laugh, Play and Learn Together”. The Early Years curriculum values play as a necessity in order to develop emotionally, cognitively and physically. At Wendover Pre-school emphasis is made on play being a vital part of the learning and development process.

Our practitioners closely observe the children to determine developmental stages and identify interests and fascinations. Plans are then made to incorporate each child’s unique needs.

Parents as Partners, How We Work Together

At Wendover Pre-school we work closely with parents to support children’s development and wellbeing. Parents and practitioners share a joint interest in and responsibility for children’s development and learning. Both parents and practitioners play a fundamental role in building children’s self-esteem and dispositions to learn, although we bring different perspectives and expertise. Together we can provide the very best learning environment. We actively encourage you to talk to us; tell us about your child at home. Fill us in on the gaps and help us to create a bigger picture. In turn we share with you what your child is doing at Pre-school through discussion, the daily information whiteboard, learning journeys, letters and curriculum information.
