Working in Partnership

At Hardings we are proud of our strong and secure links with our families and external professionals.

We have regular Open Sessions where you can come in and look at your child's Learning Journey and see what they have been doing at Pre-School. Learning Journeys are out and accessible at all times for both you and children to look at whenever you want as well.

We use WOW sheets to show specific and special things which have happened - these are used from home and also by our practitioners within the setting so that things are shared between home and Pre-School.

To enhance the learning and development opportunities we provide at Hardings, we have created "Home Learning Packs" - these contain books with activities linked to the Ages & Stages sheets we use to monitor progress and attainment within the EYFS curriculum that we follow.

Some examples of the packs can be seen here and here


Hardy Bear


Hardy is our Pre-School mascot. He loves to travel and will come to stay with you during your time at Hardings! Hardy has a special book which travels with him where you can share photographs/drawings etc of your time with him.

We also hold regular social and fundraising events at Hardings which are always well supported and attended by our families.  Our quiz nights in particular are very popular and you have a chance to win the coveted Hardings Cup!
