We care for children from 3 months old to 5 years old, from 8.00am to 6.00pm. We are open for 50 weeks of the year, giving you a choice of year round or term time only care and education. We are committed to the highest standards of childcare in a happy atmosphere where children can develop self confidence through play. Glenhurst is well stocked with large play equipment, art and craft materials, toys and books to support the carefully planned Nursery and Pre-School curriculum within the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum for children aged from 0 to 5 years old.
The Nursery caters for four groups of children:
* 3 months to 11 months
* 8 months to 20 months
* 16 months to 26 months
* 22 months to 36 months
Each age group is cared for by fully qualified and experienced Nursery staff. The Nursery building is brand new and purpose-built, with a layout that provides the children with lots of space, light and room for activity and quiet areas. There is a sleep room, a covered veranda, a playground with lots of cars, trikes and scooters and a large enclosed garden, all of which are used by our children daily for play and learning. We intend that your children should enjoy the best possible start in life. Glenhurst follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which focuses on four areas of a child’s early development.
The Pre-School caters for children from 3 years old to school age, and is based in two large bright classrooms within the main house with their own team of fully qualified and experienced staff. One classroom is a quiet area with a library, a computer, board games and puzzles, and tables for phonics, writing and number work. The other classroom is a busy area with a large space for music, dance, drama and circle time, construction sets for motor skills and coordination and a home corner and dressing up for role play and language development.
The children have access to the secure playground and garden, to an adjacent art room for arts, crafts, water and sand play, and to the dining room for cookery lessons and science. The children use I.C.T equipment regularly including the interactive whiteboard. Glenhurst Pre-School covers all aspects required by the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
We welcome children from Reception age (4½ to 5 years) up to Year 3 (8 to 9 years). We are open for 50 weeks of the year, which includes three educational terms per school year. As we are open year round, school children may access before and after school care and holiday club.

* Enabling Environments
* Learning and Development
The fourth area, Learning and Development, covers a further six areas of learning:
* Personal, Social and Emotional Development
* Communication, Language and Literacy
* Problem solving, Reasoning and Numeracy
* Knowledge and Understanding of the World
* Physical Development
* Creative Development
The National Curriculum is divided into the core subjects of:

and the foundation subjects of:
* Art, Design and Technology, Geography, History, Music, Physical Education, Science and Personal, Social and Health Education (P.S.H.E).
These subjects form the statutory curriculum, and our planning ensures comprehensive coverage. Many subjects are taught through a cross-curricular topic based approach. Where appropriate there is subject specific teaching. Teachers plan work together to ensure equality of opportunities, continuity and progression. Glenhurst School also gives children the opportunity to learn French, teaches swimming, music and recorders and provides visits and outings to the theatre, concerts, museums, historical sites and places of interest relevant to each class’s topic work.
