Fees

Children who are 3 or 4 years old are entitled to 15 hours free funding (from the term after their third birthday), which is paid for by the Local Authority grant. For those children who like extra sessions, there will be a charge of £ 4.16 per hour.

For children who are 2 and not entitled to funding there is a charge of £5.32 per hour.

We are registered to take children entitled to 30 hour funding



Health and Hygiene

Our pre-school promotes a healthy lifestyle and a high  standard of hygiene in its day to day work with the children. Parents are asked to provide a healthy packed lunch for their children. Information and advice on healthy lunches is always available. Children discuss the health benefits of healthy foods each mealtime at preschool.



Fund raising

We cannot survive on the fees alone so we undertake fund raising activities regularly. These vary from football tournaments, raffles, sponsored bike rides and different events organised for children and their families - not only from our pre-school, but including the wider community. Our Committee works really hard and has made fundraising an important part of our Preschool - this has had an amazingly positive impact on the environment and equipment we have available for your children to enjoy! We wouldn't be able to do this without help of so many people, and again ... baking a cake for raffle, or coming for an Easter Hunt ... it is all about support - always appreciated!

Parental Partnership

We believe that parents are the experts on their own child, therefore working together with them is  an essential part of our job.
