Information about the setting

Hambledon Nursery School has been operating for over 20 years and re-registered in 2013. It operates from a building that was formerly the village school, in the rural village of Hambledon, Surrey and serves the local community and the surrounding area. The nursery is registered on the Early Years Register. There are three separate classrooms, a small quiet room and a large, secure outside area, which is fully utilised, all year round for children’s play. There is a separate drive into the nursery car park for parents. Trustees and a management committee run the nursery and there are 18 members of staff including the head teacher and a secretary. Of the 17 staff working directly with children, three staff hold qualified teacher status and the manager is qualified to level 5. All the remaining staff, apart from one hold a recognised qualification in early years. The unqualified staff member is embarking on a qualification in early years. The nursery operates during term time only, Monday to Thursday from 9am to 3pm and on a Friday from 9am until 12:30pm. There are procedures in place to support children with special educational needs and/or disabilities and children with English as an additional language. What the setting needs to do to improve further To further improve the quality of the early years provision the provider should: extend activities further to promote children’s growing awareness of flat 2-dimensional and solid 3-dimensional shapes.
