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 years 9 months to 5 years. Note that we accept sibling families from 2 years 6 months. 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 have an annual intake of children every September. If at the start of the Academic Year, we still have some spaces available, we may be in the position to accept children from January.
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.
All day sessions run on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 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). Please note that, with effect from September 2021, we will no longer be offering a Thursday Lunch Club and instead, we will finish at 12.15 pm on Thursdays.
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.
