St Andrew's Pre-School

Our Pre-school offers a wide range of equipment both indoors and outside to cover the seven areas of learning and the Characteristics of Effective Learning.

Age range 2.5 to 5 years. Open 38 weeks of the academic year. Closed on Fridays. One-off non refundable registration fee of £20.00 and completion of registration form required to join our waiting list. 

We offer morning only sessions and all day sessions. We do not offer afternoon only sessions. All children must attend a minimum of 3 sessions per week. Attending all day equates to 2 sessions.

Morning sessions last 3 hours on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, with the option of staying for an additional hour for lunch on Thursdays only (a packed lunch provided by the child's family). All day sessions run on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Government funded sessions (both universal and extended funding) and an additional fee paying element paid directly to Pre-school. Please refer to our website for full details of our fees.

This setting has signed up to offer Tax Free Childcare.
