Handsworth Pre-school

Pre-School

At Handsworth Pre-school, we are committed to providing excellent standards of childcare and pre-school education for 2 to 5 year olds. By working in partnership with parents and carers and by providing a safe and stimulating environment, we encourage children to develop as happy, imaginative, confident and independent individuals. 

We employ six dedicated and fully experienced staff who have the necessary qualifications and training to work in the pre-school. We are committed to ongoing continuous professional development (CPD) to help ensure all staff keep their knowledge and practice up to date.

We have a successful key person system. Each child is allocated a member of staff, who is responsible for supporting his/her settling in and ongoing development. Your child's key person also provides you with a first point of contact,

Whilst your child is with us, we support his/her learning and development. For each child we keep an Early Learning Record (ELR) that is available to you at any time and is discussed at regular points across the academic year. When your child moves on to the next stage of his/her education we will discuss with you how best to support your child through his/her transition to the next setting. You will receive your child's Early Learning Record to take home.
