Our commitment to you

We believe your child is about to enter the most fundamental stage of their development and their learning journey. Joining our nursery is your child’s first important step in becoming part of Happy Hearts’ learning community, where great care is taken to ensure that all our children engage in a stimulating, motivating and appropriate experience that will allow them to develop both holistically and academically.

As with all human endeavours, schools are places of constant renewal and development. That is why at Happy Hearts we have recognised the importance of integrated teaching and learning. We implement this by providing a structured approach underpinned by a combined curriculum of Early Years Foundation Stage programme, together with elements of Montessori Education, whilst simultaneously encouraging inquiry, exploration and first-hand experiences that will facilitate the development of each child at their own pace.

We recognise that you are your child’s first and most important educator and we are therefore committed to developing a close working relationship with you to ensure your child’s individual needs are fully met.

Our welcome handbook is intended to provide you with the information you require in order that you and your child settle in smoothly and get the most out of your time with us.
