under5s - about this site


Under5s is the site for everyone involved in pre-school education and childcare; teachers, nursery nurses, students, child minders, nannies, and of course, parents. We believe that pre-school is the most important stage for learning; positive experiences provided at this time having a lifelong influence. We also believe that education should be fun, and actively encourage learning through play.

Under5s has been reviewed by the NGfL and has been approved as a part of the National Grid for Learning, see the NGfL site for more information.

Who are we ?

The site has been created by Sarah and John Hampson to provide free learning resources, practical information and help on all aspects of education for the under fives. Sarah is a mother of two, and a qualified early years teacher who has worked in both the state and private sector. Until recently Sarah ran her own sessional daycare setting, so all of the materials on the site are 'tried and tested'. John provides technical and artistic support !!
