Why Your Choice of Preschool is Important
There is a large body of research that shows that from the moment
of birth babies are thinking, making sense of their world and building a
view of life. As they grow these learning experiences get fine tuned
over time. Young children have a great capacity for learning, soaking up
every experience they see, hear and touch.
The environment our youngsters spend their time in, their interactions
with peers and adults, the stimuli from their surroundings and the
experiences they go through by exploring and experimenting through play
make a lasting impression on their lives. By the end of your child’s
tentative and tender first five years of life, 90% of his or her brain
connections will already have been made.

preschool experience. We think parents should be looking for a preschool
where the staff know how to provide a rich and stimulating environment
and where staff also have the experience to provide the children with
emotional support and nurture.
The knowledge to create the environment comes from staff having the
professional commitment to study and learn how to help the children in
their care learn through play. At Hambrook Hedgehogs we have one of the

with experience in thirteen preschools, nurseries and schools across
Bristol, South Gloucestershire and overseas.
Hambrook Hedgehogs exists because the staff have a passion to create a
stimulating and thriving place where we can help the children develop by
putting all of our experience and knowledge into action for their
