Baby & Toddler

We would like to express our great thanks to both Jo and Wenting for providing our Baby & Toddler sessions over the past school year. Unfortunately due to the current situation regarding the COVID-19 pandemic these sessions have been brought to a somewhat abrupt end. We would also like to thank all of the Babies, Toddlers & Parents that attended these sessions, your support and engagement is, and will continue to be, greatly appreciated.    

Toddlers is a group for all babies and children under school age.  We welcome all parents/carers to join us for a chance to socialise with other adults, while the children enjoy playing with toys and meeting other small children.  At Toddlers we will be happy to answer any questions you may have about Pre-school.

When the children arrive there will be a variety of toys and activities set out for them to choose from.  The session encourages free play, and usually includes a craft activity, sand table and playdough.  It is appreciated if everyone contributes to tidying up before snacks and drinks are served.  We all encourage the children to help tidying up too!

Jenny - 

'My little girl started going to the Toddlers sessions followed by pre-school. She was very nervous to start with and very much a mummy's girl. With the help of the Fantastic and patient teachers she has not only grown in confidence but her social skills as well. Everything has been taken at her pace and I'm always kept in the loop with what is going on and how she is learning, which as a parent is very important to me. It's definitely a great place to learn, grow and have fun.'


Fiona - 

'My son has thrived since starting at HPS and he looks forward to preschool every day. It has been great to watch him learning and building his confidence, and to hear how much he loves his teachers. I am looking forward to his sister starting in the coming year because I am sure she will have the same wonderful experience.'
