Green Hedges follows the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS)

The nursery and preschool is managed and owned by Carol Morley who has more than 25 years experience in early years. Gaining HNC and Foundation Degree in Early Years Policy and Practice, has developed integrated activity schemes throughout Scarborough with Playlink. Established out of school clubs through North Yorkshire Training and Enterprise Council, and is a lead practitioner for North Yorkshire County Council supporting other settings.

We believe that children are natural learners with ability, curiosity and imagination. We are here to help nurture their potential by providing the opportunities and tools to enable them to grow into happy and secure individuals. All the staff understand that parents are the primary educators of their children; therefore, we will work conscientiously with you in partnership to give your child the best possible start.

Whilst your child is in our care we aim to create a stimulating home from home environment where they will feel entirely comfortable. We have an open door policy and actively welcome you to share your thoughts. Two way communication is important to us and we value this to ensure comparable routines when you child is with us.
