Hygge in the Early Years

We’re so excited to tell you that over the next year Pinvin Community Preschool will begin a brand new journey as we study for the Hygge in Early Years Accreditation.

Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) is the Danish approach to life that focuses on having a happier and more simple life. Using elements of warmth, cosiness and nature to make the most of every day of the year. As we move through the training we will learn about changes we can make to our learning environments, outdoor provision and daily rhythm to bring in more calmness. 

A big part of our training will also look at supporting the wellbeing of the preschool team and the children. We will gain an understanding of how we can promote more self care and some activities we can try to connect with nature.

As we progress with this journey we will keep you informed of the changes we’re making. You’ll be invited in for our family hygge workshop and we shall share other updates on our facebook page and newsletter. We will share some hygge tips to help you too!

Our vision
We have been very busy behind the scenes making some big changes to our newly condensed preschool and are very excited to welcome the children back.

We are excited to share our vision of changing our environment and the way we work with your children to support and nurture their wellbeing and thought the best way to do this would be to include our vision boards with you!

A big focus will be taking the children's learning outdoors on a daily basis, come rain or shine. This is partly to do with minimising infection risks but also the direction we are moving as an early years setting.

We are very passionate about making these changes and can't wait for the children to be submerged into the world of hygge.
