Our Policies

Admissions Policy

Your child’s details will be taken and you will be contacted when your child reaches the age of 2 years provided a place is available. Alternatively you are welcome to call in for a visit any time leading up to your child starting. This allows your child the opportunity to become accustomed to the setting and get to know the staff and children. Places will be given on a first come, first served basis, although priority has to be given to children already attending the pre-school, who turn 3 years of age and are then entitled to the nursery education funding. Places can only be held if they are paid for. We will make it clear that our Pre-school welcomes Fathers, Mothers, other relations and carers and people from all cultural, ethnic, religious and social groups with or without disabilities.

Special Educational Needs

All children are welcome in our playgroup. We will endeavour to accommodate special educational needs wherever possible and work with children, parent/carers and any external agencies to help with the child’s development.

Nursery Education Funding

Our pre-school is in receipt of Nursery Education Funding. Your child will be able to access the funding the term after their third birthday when they will be entitled to five free sessions at our group.

30 Hours Funding

Our pre-school offers the 30 hours entitlement. Please call in for more information or visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk

2 Year Old Funding

We offer funding for 2 year olds. Please speak to  member of staff who will happily provide you with more information. Certain criteria applies.

Fees

If your child is under the age of three, there will be a charge per session. A bill will be given to the parents/carers on a half termly basis.
