Registered with OFSTED, Hedgehogs provide inclusive childcare provisions that aim to offer parents a quality service. Hedgehogs work in co-operation with local schools and Hampshire County Council, although we are a separate organisation. 

Hedgehogs provide a range of indoor and outdoor activities in each setting to suit the ages of children. We also include in our offering, breakfast, afternoon snacks and refreshments. 

Hedgehogs aim to:    

  • Provide an inclusive and happy environment, that is safe, warm and stimulating  for all children so they can play, learn and develop freely.
  • Cultivate and develop childrens social skills and self confidence in a play environment.
  • Encourage children to have a positive attitude and respect for both themselves and other people.
  • Promote a positive relationship with parents and work in partnership with them to provide high quality play and care for their children.
  • Offer inclusive services that are accessible to all children.
