Pre-school

We are so excited to be able to offer pre-school care at our Forest school site. We will be providing opportunities for children, aged 2.5 to 5 years, to explore and discover their natural world. We have a trained Forest School leader who will be on-site with the children.

 

 

Our Sessions

 

We will be offering pre-school sessions from Monday-Thursday, during term time only, 9.30am-2.30pm.

 

Due to the nature of Forest School, we offer full-day sessions, 9.30am-2.30pm. This is to allow children to get the full benefit of what we offer and to allow them ample time and space to explore, without time constraints.

 

Children will need to bring a packed lunch with them, drinks and snacks will be provided.

 

 

 

Fees

 

Registration Fee

To register your child at our Pre-School we ask for an up-front charge of £50. Included in this price is a brand new pair of Didrikson’s high quality and durable waterproof trousers. You will receive your new starter information prior to your child starting with us.

 

 

Tiddlypeeps Fees (2-3 years)

Our daily rate is £38 per day for our five hour session, 9:30am – 2:30pm.  This includes a morning drink and snack plus a range of enrichment activities and trips.  

Muddypeeps Fees (3-4 years)

Our daily rate is £33 per day for a five hour session, 9:30am – 2:30pm. This includes a morning drink and snack plus a range of enrichment activities and trips.  

 

Government funding

Your child can access 15 hours of universal entitlement, 570 hours of free entitlement hours funded by the government from the term after their third birthday. Working parents of 3 and 4-year-olds are able to obtain an additional 15 hours of funded childcare provided that they meet certain eligibility criteria.  

We accept the funding for all children. We have a couple of fully funded places available; once the fully funded places are booked, we are still able to accept the funding, however, there is a service charge of £10 per day that pays for the forest school activities, enrichment activities and snacks that isn't covered by the funding. 

The funding can also be split with other settings, provided that the other setting is happy with the arrangement.

 

Fees will be invoiced monthly in advance, payable by the 1st of each month.
