Our preschool is located in the Harefield Primary School site. It is a separate expansive room with a large play-loft and areas for different group activities - a cosy book corner, craft area, sand and water play, physical activity and construction areas. There is easy direct access to the outside area enabling children to choose easily where they would like to play.

Manager's Message

Hi, I'm Dawn - I am the manager here at Paint Pots at Harefield. I have an NVQ Level 3 Diploma for the Children and Young People’s Workforce (QCF)

I have worked at Paint Pots for 5 years and have a passion for providing high quality and stimulating childcare and always ensure that our ethos of ‘love, laughter and learning’ is at the heart of all we do. As a Mum myself I know how important this is.

 My team and I are enthusiastic, hardworking, nurturing and dedicated. We range from being newly qualified to being Grandparents and really do feel as though we are part of a Paint Pots family.

We use a ‘Curiosity Approach’ style of learning. This is a modern approach to early childhood, taking influence from Reggio, Steiner and Te Whariki. We provide children with a natural environment in which they can discover the world around them.

Please do come and say hello, and don’t forget your slippers!
