About Us

Welcome to Hormead Hedgehogs!


‘Outstanding Provider in all Areas’, Ofsted January 2019

Hormead Hedgehogs is situated within the school grounds of Hormead CofE First and Nursery School in Great Hormead. It is a separate charitable organisation, run by a committee made up from the parents/ carers of children who attend as well as Hedgehogs staff. We have very close links with the school and many of the children who attend Hedgehogs then attend Hormead School, although not all. We pride ourselves on linking with all schools in the local area to ensure that children are supported through any transition between establishments.


We are OFSTED inspected and copies of our latest report are available on request. We are registered for children from the age of 2 years, and are able to take children on 15 free hours funding for both 2, 3 and 4 year olds and 30 hour free funding for 3 and 4 year olds. This funding can also be shared between settings.

Our staff are all dedicated members of a small team. The manager is trained to Level 3 and currently studying a Degree in Education Studies, with all staff trained at level 3. We feel that having a small consistent staff team is important so we know and understand the needs of all the children that attend the setting. We have over 20 years of experience in child care and education and pride ourselves on meeting the needs of all our children, supporting them to develop holistically and as individual’s.
