Here are a few snapshots of life at Hayling Community Preschool over the last few months March-August 2023.
During that time we have had trips to the local shops including Hayling Hardware Ltd, and the Coop, visited Northney Farm which was an amazing experience for the children 🀩
The children collaged a crown πŸ‘‘ for Hayling Island Arts Trail. It was then displayed at Hayling Island Library πŸ“š.
We said farewell to our leavers by having a graduation πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ“ Madhatters tea β˜•οΈ party.
We visited Mengham Infant School reception play area during our lead up to transitions to school, held our Children’s summer party and ran a summer club with lots of fun activities including sports ⚽️
We are now settling our new starters into the daily routine and enjoying seeing our returning children come back full of confidence and building new friendships 😌


Due to the sad news about the closure of Cherry Island Nursery we have been inundated with calls and emails about availability for parents needing childcare.
We are doing our best to accommodate as many families as we can but as of close of business yesterday we can confirm we now have limited availability for afternoons only. But please still make your enquiries and we can add you to our waiting list.
Availability can change as time goes on.
From all the staff at Hayling Community Preschool we hope that the parents can find suitable childcare and the staff are offered/find alternative employment very soon πŸ€—
Note: Services for Young Children are also actively supporting these families and staff and have been in contact with all local preschools and nurseries to ask about our availability ☺️


Hayling Community Preschool’s Summer Raffle was a huge success! 😁
This wouldn’t have been possible without the kindness and generosity of local businesses, our parent Committee, family and friends 😁

Apologies we have been a bit quiet on our public page for the last month. It has been a very busy time at Hayling Community Preschool for many reasons some of which you will see from the photos below ⬇️
Our children have been developing their self help skills, independently cutting up their own fruit 🍌 at snack times, pouring their own drinks and washing up 🧼 their own cups and plates.
We celebrated Pancake πŸ₯ž Day with savoury and sweet pancakes from around the world 🌎.
The children have enjoyed lots of sensory play, using their curiosity to find out what happens next and using their senses to touch, πŸ–, see πŸ‘€ , hear, πŸ‘‚, smell πŸ‘ƒ and sometimes taste πŸ‘… the ingredients they mix and explore together.
They have also investigated mixing paint 🎨 and colours to see how they change using different tools, their hands πŸ™Œ and feet πŸ‘£.
They have been enjoying lots of building and construction 🚧🧱 to make dens, enclosures and other environments to β€œlive in”. 😊


If you would like to work term time only and are a NVQ 3+ qualified and experienced Early Years Practitioner please get in touch 😊

They sang 🎡and used makaton signs πŸ–πŸ» to Baa πŸ‘ Baa black sheep, Twinkle twinkle little star ⭐️ and Happy Birthday πŸ₯³ to Jesus amongst other Christmas πŸŽ…πŸ» songs β€œWe wish you a merry Christmas 🀢🏻, Jingle Bells πŸ”” and When Santa πŸŽ…πŸ» got stuck up the chimney” 🎢

Over the last half term the children have been busy enjoying Halloween cooking activities, experimenting- making an erupting volcano, making sensory play dough adding scents, colour and texture, exploring cornflour goo, dressing up, role play, construction and lots more.
Our families have also been generously donating tinned and packet foods for harvest festival ready to be donated to Hayling Library food pantry. Donated clothing for children aged 2-5 years for the Stop Domestic Abuse Charity and supporting WAVE-Hayling Island i.e. volunteering, being part of their committee and our next step is to set up day time support groups for parents, carers and grandparents.
We have also made some improvements to Hayling Community Preschool, our corridor has been transformed into an area of calm for quiet, sensory and calming activities ☺️

We are now in our 4th week back after the summer break. It has been a busy time settling in our new children and their families along with welcoming back our 2nd year preschoolers 😊
The children have been getting to know their key person by having stories read πŸ“– to them, making playdough, mixing paints, exploring the outdoors, small group work including Boogie Mites and more 😊.
