Hedgehogs Room

Our Room

In Hedgehogs, we take children from the age of 18 months until around their 3rd birthday, and have a maximum of 12 children with us at a time. Our aim is to give children the best possible start to their early education, and help their development at their own pace.

The room is set up with a child led craft/messy area, role play area, a cosy quiet space where children are given the opportunity to rest or sleep if they need to, and a new, stimulating sensory space. Children have the opportunity during their daily routine to free flow the outside area, and access Forest School during the week.

We have a suitable and safe nappy changing area in our room, and toilet-trained children have access to the main toilets (situated through the Barn Owls room).

Our staff use Makaton to help children communicate.

We run regular Forest School sessions throughout the week in our woodland space on site. Suitable clothing is provided to enable the activity to operate regardless of the weather.

What Our Families are Saying

An absolutely fantastic preschool where they really do put the children first, they are always doing some creative activity whether that’s forest school, baking, learning a new language or creative tasks! All five of my boys have attended Seedlings and I would highly recommend this preschool for all budding adventurers!

The communication is excellent. They always make time to listen to any issues and more importantly they act on it if you have concerns about your child’s development. If you want your child to go to a preschool that not only cares for your child to a high standard but also moulds them for school so they get the best start possible, then choose Seedlings!

Seedlings is a fantastic place to see your children grow and learn. I love the fact that our children get to experience Forest School and can make use of the outdoor space when they want to.

My daughter loves Seedlings. From day one, everyone was very welcoming and she settled in quickly. Her speech developed rapidly, and now she’s a proper chatterbox! Seedlings have been brilliant at assisting with her toilet training too. I highly recommend it to everyone.
