St Joseph's Early Years Hub

Early Years Hub Prospectus

Our Early Years' Hub has 3 key groups: Maple for 2 and 3 year olds, Elm for 3 and 4 year old preschoolers and Holly for 4 and 5 year old Reception children. Elm and Holly share a large indoor and outdoor area, working together as a Foundation Stage Unit. We play together, learn alongside one another and help one another. We value and celebrate the uniqueness of every child, and nurture the foundations for lifelong learning by providing exceptional early years education experiences.


Children can move through the Foundation Stage curriculum at their own pace, with Reception children getting support at an earlier level if needed, and pre-school children progressing through to later stages if they're ready. Continuity and progression are assured. Groupings are more flexible to benefit the children, and staff can provide opportunities that are challenging and meet individual need.


Come and visit us to see the Hub in action!

We accept 2 year old funding, as well as the universal 15 hours funding for 3 and 4 year olds and the extended 30 hour funding. We are also happy to invoice you if you are self-funding, or for sessions above and beyond your funding. Please see the links below to find out more about your entitlements:
