Welcome to Early Years at Holmwood House in Colchester, which is an incredibly exciting place for your child to make an excellent start on their learning journey. Our Early Years starts at 2 years old in our Preschool and continues through until the children have finished their Reception year.
Holmwood House Preschool
In our Preschool we understand the importance of creating an exciting and engaging curriculum that is based on the interests of your child to spark their learning journey
Aged 2-3 Year Olds – Sparking Curiosity
We believe in nurturing the natural curiosity of 2-3 year olds and fostering a love for learning, so they have the foundations in place to become enthusiastic and self motivated learners
Aged 3-4 Year Olds – Igniting Learning
We are dedicated to igniting a love for learning in our 3-4 year olds and preparing them for their transition to school. We understand that this age is crucial for building a strong foundation of knowledge and skills. By providing a nurturing and stimulating environment, we ensure that our 3-4 year olds are school ready and equipped with the necessary tools to excel in their educational journey.
In Reception we carry on all the excellent learning that has taken place in our Nursery and Preschool and the children achieved a successful transition to Reception. Our beautiful setting provides a secure and nurturing environment where children feel comfortable to explore and discover. Our small class size and access to specialist teachers enable the children to make rapid progress during their Reception year. We empowered the children to express their ideas, build their confidence, become independent learners and embrace a passion for learning that extends beyond the classroom.
