Lunch and Snacks
A healthy snack is provided for all children during morning sessions. Children who access the afternoon sessions can either bring a packed lunch or alternatively a hot meal can be provided from the school canteen at a charge of £2.30 payable directly to the school in advance.
The majority of our children are aged from 2 years to compulsory school age, however we do also have a separate baby room for a small number of children aged under 2.
Your child does not need to be toilet trained to attend the setting. We can offer advice and support when you choose to begin toilet training, or continue any routine you have already implemented.
There is no uniform policy at our setting, but sweatshirts and T-shirts with the preschool logo are available to purchase for those who wish to. Order forms can be obtained from preschool, payable via bank transfer. We ask that your child attends the pre-school in clothes marked clearly with their name. Wellies and slippers are also recommended for the winter months.

Flexible settling in sessions can be arranged for your child and you to familiarise yourselves with the preschool and get to know our staff.

Under 2s: £5 per hour
2 years plus: £4.50 per hour

We provide places for children who are eligible for government funding.
Your child will be eligible for government funding of up to 15 hours per week, a maximum of 9 per day, at the beginning of the first term after they reach the age of 3. Some children will also be entitled to 30 hours funding from this age onwards.
We are also providers of government funded means tested care for children at the beginning of the term after they turn 2 year old. This is for up to 15 hours per week.
The Childcare Choices government website contains lots of useful information and will help you to establish what funding your child is eligible for. Click the link here to be taken to this site.
Funding can be a confusing topic for many, so please feel free to contact playgroup staff, who will be happy to assist you.
Childcare Vouchers: Many companies provide childcare vouchers as part of their benefit schemes. We are already registered with many of these schemes, but can register for any that we are not already registered with.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or queries you have with regard to fees, funding or wraparound care.
