Dolphin School

Waltham Road, Hurst, Reading RG10 0FR

Dolphin has been providing a happy and secure environment for a child’s first steps into education for over thirty years. The atmosphere is exciting, colourful, orderly and inviting. The children work happily with purpose, care and competence.

The aim is to inspire in the child curiosity, a love of learning and to build self-esteem through a structured, hands-on, learning programme. There are different themes for every term, integrated into which is a long established programme of relevant day trips and visits.

Forming a Foundation Stage, the Nursery works closely with Reception to maximise flexibility for the children to tackle appropriate tasks, and to ensure a smooth transition to the Upper School.

The greatest resource at Dolphin is a highly qualified and dedicated staff. They are innovative and flexible and enjoy the challenge of teaching. They stay abreast of current trends in the teaching profession and of developments in their specialist fields.
