Our philosophy and approach
Our motto is learning through play and we aim to provide all our children with the opportunity to build and develop the important skills needed throughout life via play.
We follow the Early Years Foundation Framework (EYFS), ensuring that all our children develop and learn to their full potential. We deliver a wide range of fun, challenging and stimulating activities which help children to make progress in each of the key areas of learning and development.
We are a small village Pre School which is a member of the Pre School Learning Alliance. The Pre School is run by the Managers with a parent supporters committee working very closely to raise extra funds for outings and other resources.
Prospective parents are invited to make an appointment to view the Pre School and meet the team whilst it is in session. Please contact us at [email protected] or telephone 01664 474412.
Admissions & Fees
Government free early years places are available for eligible two year olds and all three and four year old children, covering 15 hours a week and a minimum of 3 hours a session. We will apply for this funding on the parents behalf. The government is also offering 30 hours funding to children who has both parents working (within certain criteria); and tax free childcare. To see if you are eligable for either of these please go onto www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.
Our fee's are £5.00 per hour for non funded two year olds, and £4.50 for three and four year olds who do hours over and above the 15 hours government funding if they arent eligible for the 30 hours.
We operate several childcare voucher schemes, so please ask when you register your child.
