We are open Tuesday-Friday term time only, and try to link our term dates with our local primary schools.
3 & 4 year old Universal Funding
A child is entitled to receive Universal Funding for 15 hours preschool education per week, from the school term following their 3rd birthday. These funding vouchers can be used across our opening hours as you wish. If your child attends Pre-School for more than 15 hours per week then you will be invoiced for the extra hours they attend. Invoices are sent out half termly, although we are happy to set up payment plans on request.
If your child is not yet eligible to receive Early Years Education funding vouchers, you will be invoiced for the whole cost of their Pre-School education for the amount of hours/sessions they attend.
Extended 30 hours funding
Some children may qualify for additional funding up to 30 hours per week. This is entirely dependent upon family circumstances. Please click here to find out more.
2 Year funding
2 Year funding may be awarded by the Local Authority, depending upon family circumstances. You can find out if you qualify by clicking here.
Funding can start the term following the child’s second birthday (1st January, 1st April or 1st September whichever applies).
If you have any queries please call the Family Information Service on 01305 221066.
We charge an hourly rate of £4.65 for 3 and 4 year olds, and £4.85 per hour for 2 year olds. Fees are reviewed by the trustees annually, however we reserve the right to change fees at any time in the school year in exceptional circumstances.

Session Start Time
Morning only, afternoon only and all day sessions are available with start times according to you and your child’s need.
Afternoon sessions on Thursdays and Fridays start at 12.00 noon (before lunch) and finish at 3.00pm. This is at the discretion of the Leader and based upon spaces available.
We have Toddler bed mats / cushions within a quiet area / section for those little ones who need a morning or afternoon nap. We also have a buggy available if this would suit your child better.
Lunch club is included in all morning and all day sessions, and also in the afternoon session that begins at 12.00 noon. (Please see welcome pack download for lunch recommendations.)
We offer a snack mid morning and mid afternoon, which is provided by the pre-school. This consists of a selection of fruits (which we buy from the local farm shop) and sometimes savoury snacks such as crackers and breadsticks, or perhaps some home cooking the children may have prepared themselves! There is an additional voluntary charge of 25p per session for snack which we will invoice you for.
We do sell uniform, which is recommended but not compulsory. Our uniform consists of red polo t-shirts and fleeces with our Pre-School Logo on.
Uniform is advised in order to stop your child’s home clothes getting messy and grubby during play! We recommend old clothes to be worn to Pre-School.
A red polo shirt costs £8.00
A red fleece jacket costs £12.00
Pre-School book bags £5.00
Please ask about ordering uniform if you are interested.
