Children are funded by Hampshire education from the full term after their 3rd birthday. This funding covers up to 15 hours of education per week for a maximum of 570 hours per eligible birthday year. Fees for children who are not funded are charged at an hourly rate of £5.95 (for the year 2020-21).
We are open on Monday to Friday 8.45am to 3.00pm, during term time only. We offer a choice of start and finish times to give flexibility for parents/carers and children can attend for whole or part of a day. If your child attends all day, we ask you to supply a packed lunch.
We are located in the heart of the village of Hook, Hampshire in the church hall of St John’s Church. We are a very short walk from both the Hook Infant and Hook Junior schools and have parking facilities.
Our adult to child ratio is better than 1:6 which exceeds the legal requirement. This allows us to ensure a high degree of individual attention. We aim to have a limit of 20 children at any one time.
Parent 1-2-1 Meetings
At various points during the year we invite parents into the setting to speak with their child’s key worker to discuss progress, next steps and anything else important for each child. We strongly believe that the relationship we have with parents and carers plays an essential part in a child’s development.
Parents Advisory Panel
We have a volunteer support group of 3 parents/carers who meet once a term with staff to review practices within the setting and discuss suggestions proposed by parents. If you would be interested in being part of the group, please get in touch.
Parents – School Transition Information evening
This important meeting is held during the summer term for all parents with school starters. During the evening we discuss what we do with the children in setting, plus lots of top tips to get the children ready for school. It is also a lovely chance for parents/carers to catch up before their children head to school.
