Useful Information

Starting at pre-school

Children are expected to attend a minimum of two sessions per week, unless they are unable to do so for medical reasons, as they settle more quickly and build up stronger relationships with both the staff and other children. Our records show a direct link between sessions attended and levels of performance achieved in personal, social and emotional skills. For the last one or two terms (at the discretion of the staff) children may have the opportunity to join rising 5’s session, which is slightly more structured to ease their transition into school life.

Pre-school closure

If the Pre-school has to close due to an emergency or bad weather (e.g. heavy snow) parents will be advised, where possible, through a phone cascade system by a member of the committee between 8.15am and 8.30am.

Parking – friendly reminder

We would ask you to be conscious of the local residents when parking and request that you do not park in front of the driveways around Pre-school when dropping off or picking up children. Thank you.
