Here at the Preschool we are all about teaching the children about health and hygiene. To encourage the children to eat healthily we provide a healthy snack at each session. Some of the things we have are breadsticks, cheese and grapes, ricecakes, cheese dip and pears and pitta fingers, hummus, carrots & cucumber sticks and apples. We do ask for a payment of 25p per session or £1 a week for the snacks. We also provide milk and water. On a Monday and Friday session, as the session is an afternoon session we will provide a lunch such as sandwiches/ crackers with cheese, vegetable sticks,  fruit and yoghurt. The snacks are set up in small bowls in the middle of the tables, so the children are encouraged to serve themselves and pour thier own drinks. This encourages hand eye co-ordination and gives children a chance to make thier own choices. The children sit at the table with others encouraging social interaction skills.

Session Information

The main aim of the group is to provide a safe, caring environment which promotes your child's health, individuality, dignity and an opportunity for fun, learning and socialising with adults and children from a wide range of cultures, free from any discrimination such as racism and sexism.
All our activities are appropriate for age and development of the children.
We offer a free choice group where the children decide their own activities and are encouraged to do them for themselves whilst being supported by the staff.
However, we do enjoy coming together as a group at story, singing and circle time.
Parents are welcome to come into the group at any time.
We would like you to discuss with us, your child's likes, dislikes, comfort toys, health problems to ensure stability for your child, whilst away from you.
Should your child require special medication whilst at pre-school, written consent will be required and appropriate consent forms filled in (please see a staff member).
If you would like to participate or have any suggestions you may wish to contribute to your child's well being and education, we would like to hear from you.
We have a number of students working in the group and encourage them to participate in all activities, concerning your child's welfare. The student's are under the supervision of a member of staff at all times.
The group operates under set policies to help guide us in our day to day dealings with the children.

We offer a mininum of 2 days a week to all the children. 2 year olds are initially offered 2 days a week until they are entitled to the 3 year funding IF additional sessions are available.
Admission age to the group is from 2 years upwards, however due to the ever increasing requirement for this type of education, we would advise you to register your child on our waiting list as early as possible.
Payment is due in the first week at the beginning of each term/ half term .
  • The Unfunded rate is £10.50 per 3 hour sessionpayment to be by cash or cheque. 
  • When a child is in receipt of NEF (Nursery Education Funding),  (which is for a total of 15 hours per week,) a Parental Statement of Undertaking is required each term (supplied by the group at the start of each term.) For more information regarding PSOU click here.

At the time of registration, a copy of the child's birth certificate must be supplied.
