How do I join Pre-School?
It's never too early to get your child's name on our waiting list. Just complete our 'Application Form'. We will contact you approx 4 weeks before your child turns 2 years and 6 months old to discuss availability and agree a start date. You can also choose to defer your child starting until the start of the term after they turn 3, when they will receive funding of up to 15 hours per week.
You can book a morning (9 am till 12 noon) or afternoon (12 noon till 3pm) session or a full day to suit your needs.
Current cost is £14.50 per 3 hour session.
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 and the start of the term after your child turns 3. Further details can be found at: www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
All new bookings are subject to a one-off £20 admin fee to secure your place,
once your sessions are confirmed.
More information is available in our prospectus and registration documents.
Once your child has settled, you may need to add to or change their sessions. These changes can be accommodated at the start of each half term, providing we have availability. We do try and accommodate changes mid-term if we can.
We invoice each half term, so you are making a commitment to these sessions for the duration of each half term.
We do try and accommodate your preferred sessions but places are limited.
We offer places for up to 30 hour extended entitlement funding. Again,
places are limited and are offered on a first-come-first-served basis.
As we are getting full to capacity, we are unable to reserve spaces for a future term. Sorry!
