The first years of your child’s education are crucial to academic and life success.

At the Hampshire School Chelsea, we introduce our very young children to the thrill of learning in a warm, nurturing family environment. Our Early Years children develop outstanding social, language, aesthetic and academic skills. The children learn through play and the curriculum and play based experiences are purposeful ensuring each child is supported and challenged at their own pace.

Each child receives individual attention and is encouraged to learn, make friends and feel successful. The Hampshire School Chelsea Early Years curriculum follows the Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines whilst enriching learning experience with specialist teaching. 

Ages for joining

Children can join The Hampshire School Chelsea in Pre-Nursery class during the term they turn three. At Nursery level, we focus on developing social, language and physical skills while helping children settle productively into their new learning environment.

As children progress, they learn numeracy and literacy concepts, and explore creative and world topics. This early learning builds strong skills for Reception year. We aim to develop your child’s skills and confidence in all areas before they move to Year One.

Enhanced learning

Your child’s curriculum learning is enhanced by weekly French, gym, swimming, dance, ballet, music, art, ICT and library sessions with our specialist teachers.

Moving to pre prep level

We ensure continuity for your child with structured transition activities to ensure your child is prepared for Pre Prep both academically and emotionally.

Continuity with the Early Years section is maintained through regular moderation and transition activities. The children continue to make exceptional progress from the level of attainment reached at the end of their Early Years education.
