Our Fr Mathews' Early Years Hub was built in 2016 and consists of three brand new, state of the art classrooms which house Little Hearts Pre-School, Reception and Year One.
The Early Years Hub is fully resourced with new equipment and has an outstanding internal and external environment for children to learn in. In addition to this our children also access a number of our 'Outdoor Areas'.
When we are outside, the children are not ‘just’ playing out; as inside, they are learning through carefully planned play. We have spent a lot of time developing our indoor provision – which means the ‘learning through play’ opportunities we offer indoors. Now we want the same great quality for the children outside.
The build journey...
In the autumn of 2015 we were thrilled to secure a grant to build three additional classes at the back of the school. The project began with the mobile classroom that Little Hearts used, being craned and re-positioned at the end of the yard before works to adjoin the three classes to the back of school commenced.
The pictures below were taken from the same point and show the various stages of the build, the children had a fantastic time watching the structure grow and grow!
