If you would like to register your child you can either phone or email Kathrine Davis on email@example.com for a registration form. During opening hours we operate an Open Door policy, the staff will be happy to show you around and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to meeting you!
Fees are £5.80 per hour, payable half termly in advance. We also offer a flexible payment system allowing you to pay your fees weekly. Fees continue to be payable even if a child is absent. In cases of prolonged absence parents should consult the Manager (Mrs Susan Millar – 07711776899). Fees must be paid within the first 14 days of each half term to guarantee the child’s place or we must receive nursery education funding for your child.
A registration fee of £50.00 is requested by the preschool. The payment will be requested upon registration of the child. This is to cover the admin costs associated with the registration and is non-refundable.
A deposit of £100.00 is required to secure the place once an offer is made. This is refunded upon request at the end of the child's placement. However, should the place not be taken up the deposit will not be refunded.
Free Early Years Education funding for 3 and 4 year olds – Extended entitlement (30 hours childcare)
Working parents of 3-and 4-year olds who are eligible will be able to apply for up to another 15 hours of early years education or childcare per week for 38 weeks. This is called the ‘extended’ entitlement.

Some 2 year olds are also eligible for 15 hours free childcare, for example if you get certain benefits.

We want your child to feel happy and safe at the pre-school. You and your child are invited to visit the preschool as often as you wish in the term before they are due to start. All children are treated individually and staff work closely with parents and carers to ensure a smooth transition.
In our setting we maintain the ratio of adults to children in the setting that is set through the Welfare Requirements. We also have volunteer parent helpers and students where possible to complement these ratios. This helps us to: give time and attention to each child; talk with the children about their interests and activities; help children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide; and allow the children to explore and be adventurous in safety.
You and your child will be introduced to your child’s keyperson when you first join the group. The keyperson will develop a meaningful relationship with your child and yourself ensuring that your child’s needs are being fulfilled within the group.
Please dress your child in play clothes. Some of our activities are messy and aprons are worn but children will play more confidently knowing that mum or dad doesn’t mind if they get messy. We do have sweatshirts and Polo shirts with our logo on which are available to buy but they are not compulsory. We do use the outside area in all weathers so the children need coats, wellies or sun cream as appropriate.
It's unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor infections. For a speedy recovery and to prevent the other children from falling ill, children who are unwell must stay at home. Only when the fever has subsided for a whole day should you return your child to the nursery. If the disease is infectious, we'll need a doctor's note confirming that your child is no longer contagious.
