Welcome to Farnsfield Pre-School. We hope you enjoy looking at our site.
If you require any further information, please contact us using the details provided in our 'contact us' section.
We offer fantastic childcare and education from age 2 1/2 to five years in a safe, caring and stimulating environment.
We open from 9.00am till 3.00pm Monday to Friday during term times.
We now use the Tapestry app which is where you will find your child's key working files. Once your child starts, you will be provided with login details.
You can then activate your account and see what your child has been up to. Your Key person can also communicate directly with you via Tapestry and you can add your own comments, photos and feedback!
It's never too early to get your childs name on our waiting list!

We open from 9.00am till 3.00pm Monday to

morning (9 am till 12 noon) or afternoon (12 noon till 3pm) session or a full day to suit your needs.

Children are entitled to claim 15 hours (5 sessions) per week from the start of the term after their 3rd birthday. If you are claiming the extended entitlement (up to 30 hours funding), this starts
the term after you made your claim. Further details can be found at:
All new bookings are subject to a one-off £20
admin fee to secure your place, once your sessions are confirmed.

Our latest risk assessment is here for your information.
As the pathway into Pre-School is very narrow,
please ensure you leave enough room for people
to pass safely and maintain social distancing.
The use of a face mask in this area is advisable. We also ask that you try and maintain a safe distance from other parents in our playground when dropping off and collecting your child.
We would love to see any photos you have of you and your child sharing a story.
Photos can be brought in to Pre-School or emailed to our usual address.
We would welcome any photos of your child enjoying their time at home or in the holidays. We put these on a display to encourage the children to talk about what they did which helps develop language skills.
Term time calendar can be found on the downloads page.
Little Explorers - all parents/carers will be informed before their child takes part. You will get a message via Tapestry.
All children in blue group will get a chance to do this on a rota system.
If you claim the extended entitlement funding, please ensure you apply during the term before your child turns 3 years old and let us have your completed funding claim form. We need to verify the claim online before the term starts in order to claim the funding. If you already claim up to 30 hours, please ensure you verify your details with HMRC when asked to do so.
If your child has an upset tummy, please ensure they are clear for at least 48 hours before returning to Pre-School. This helps to stop any bugs spreading and also gives your child time to recover.
