We operate Monday to Friday, following John Hellins Primary School term dates.
08.45 - 11.45am
11.45 - 12.15pm- Optional lunch club
**We also offer early starts and late finishes, subject to availability. Please get in touch with pre-school to make a request.**
Children are welcome to attend from the age of 2 years and 9 months, up to 4 years old, when they will leave to attend school.
As part of our learning strategy, children between 2 years, 9 months and 3 years old are offered places in our afternoon sessions.
This gives us more scope to manage age differentiate activities.
Once your child is 3 years old, they may graduate to the mornings sessions, following a completed change of session request form (subject to availability)
Morning sessions are more targeted to benefit the older children in their transitional journey towards their first year in reception at school.
From the first full term your child is 3 years old, they are entitled to government funded sessions, 15 hours a week until they start school, or 30 hours per week if you work 16 hours or more (based on 38 week term time). You will need to signup online to obtain a code from the government, and any additional sessions are subject to availability.
For those who don't qualify or for additional sessions our fees are as follows:
There is also a £15 admin fee when you register. This is only applicable for those children not eligible for funding.
Morning or Afternoon session: £12.50
Lunch session: £ 2.00
Early Start or Late Finish session: £ 2.00
Full Short Day (morning, lunch and afternoon sessions): £27.00
Full Long Day (Early start, morning, lunch, afternoon and late finish sessions): £31.00
