Heronswood Primary School and Pre-School

Heronswood Tots - 2 Year Old Room

Heronswood Tots is our Pre-School for two-year-olds and early three-year-olds.  It is situated within a purpose-built classroom and is part of Heronswood Primary School. Heronswood Tots focuses on providing a safe, nurturing and stimulating learning environment for children aged 2-3.  We prioritise supporting children's social, emotional, physical, and cognitive development through play-based learning experiences.

We follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) curriculum, which includes activities and experiences that promote communication and language development.  Our range of experiences cater for the individual needs and interests of each child. This includes storytelling, art and craft, construction, phonics, music and movement, outdoor play, and role-play; ensuring our children are exposed to a wide and balanced curriculum. We also promote the development of early literacy and numeracy skills, preparing children for their transition to Pre-School and then Primary School.


The staff at Heronswood Tots are highly experienced in early childhood education, ensuring that each child receives the appropriate support and guidance in their personalised learning journey. They work in partnership with parents and carers to provide a holistic approach to children's development, and regular communication is maintained to keep parents and carers informed about their child's progress.  Our staff encourage and develop warm relationships which enable children to flourish and grow whilst developing their personal skills, communication skills and social skills; preparing them fully for their transition to primary school.
