Joining Pre-school

Registration Fees Starting Pre-school


Our prospectus contains all the information parents might need to know when deciding to enroll their child and is sent out to all new parent/carers. It gives details of how, when and where we operate. Our aim is to ensure that families are fully aware of what Pre-school has to offer. The prospectus is also updated annually.

You will find a copy of it on the notice board at the Pre-school or you can click here to download a copy.

Admission Policy

  • Our pre-school offers education and care for children below school age and over the age of 2 years 10 months.  Toilet-training is encouraged but is not a requirement for starting pre-school.
  • In most cases children will be initially offered 2 sessions per week. These could be mornings or/and afternoons.
  • Session fees from September 2017 are: for children not eligible for grant - £10.00 per session, for children who are eligible for the grant £14.00 per session for any chargeable session. Lunch club is available @£2.00 per session for 3 years+. Fees will be reviewed in July 2018. 
  • Pre-school requests 4 weeks notice if your child is leaving Pre-school for any reason (except when leaving at the end of the Summer term to attend school).
  • Pre-school must be kept informed at all times of changes in details such as addresses and telephone numbers.
  • Morning Sessions start at 8.50am and end at 11.50am ; Afternoon sessions start at 12.20pm and end at 3.20pm ; Lunch club runs from 11.50am to 12.20pm everyday.
  • Pre-school needs to have seen proof of your child's date of birth when he/ she starts Pre-school.  Please bring appropriate proof (e.g. birth certificate, passport, benefits book) with you when you attend your child's induction session.


You can register your child with the Pre-school at any time. Please download and fill in the provisional registration form and return this to either the Pre-school or the admissions secretary.  To help meet initial administration costs, a registration fee of £10 is required when you register your child with the Pre-school.  Please do feel free to contact the pre-school or Michelle Medlicott, the admissions secretary for any further information.

Admission / Home Visit

Once you have provisionally registered your child with the Pre-school, the admissions secretary will contact you to arrange a Home Visit as there are quite a few forms to fill in and some paperwork to go through prior to your initial session. This is also a good opportunity for our Supervisor, Dawn Gibson to meet with your child before they start pre-school. You and your child will then be invited for an induction session as close to their expected start date as possible.
