We are open from 9-3 Monday to Friday in line with the school terms (more or less).

Sessions run from 9 – 12 and 12 -3 but there is the option for children to stay all day. Children starting at 12 or attending all day have lunch as part of their session. Afternoon and All day sessions need a packed lunch to be provided.

A snack is provided in both sessions.


All 3 and 4 year old's are entitled to up to 15 hours of free sessions a week from the start of the term after their third birthday. These are funded by the Government and the pre-school does all the work to claim the money. We’ll just need you to complete a simple form. If you would like your child to attend more sessions you must pay for these.  The current price is £12.75 for a morning or afternoon session. Some parents may be eligible to claim 30 hour funding (limited availability). For more information visit the website

Some 2 year olds are also eligible for up to 15 hours a week of Government funded sessions starting the term after their second birthday. If you would like your child to attend more sessions you must pay for these.  The current price is £12.75 for a morning or afternoon session.

Full details of Government funding can be found on the website.

We are very lucky to be able to use the school hall for PE twice a week on a Tuesday and Wednesday morning.

On a Friday afternoon we can also offer a ballet lesson. If your child already attends on a Friday afternoon you can send them to ballet. If they don’t normally attend on a Friday afternoon you can come in with them for ballet. In either case you need to book a place and their is a cost of £10 per half term.
