How do I enroll my child?
Children can start pre-school once they are 2 years old, depending on spaces. Children should be registered as soon as possible to ensure you guarantee your place. To register simply contact school for a registration form or download one from the Contact Us page complete and return.
How much does it cost?
We charge £4.70 per hour which is invoiced at the start of each half term.
All 3 and 4 year olds and eligible 2 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of funded nursery education for 38 weeks of the year. This applies until they reach compulsory school age. See below to see when your child qualifies for the free hours.
We also accept children who are eligiable for 30 hours funded nursery education. Please check childcarechoices.gov.uk to see if you are eligible
What Happens after I have enrolled my child?
Once we have received your Registration Form we will drop you an email to confirm receipt. Close to your child’s start date we will issue you with a Welcome Pack which will have all the information you will need and forms that need to be completed prior to start with important information about your child. Leading up to your child’s start date we recommend you come along and do some settling in sessions, you can stay for as long, and do as many of these sessions as you wish as all children are very different when it comes to starting pre-school.
If we have a waiting list we will add your child’s name onto the list and will email you to let you know your position.
On arrival the children are asked to find there name and post it in the post box next to the desk. Each day there will be a question that the children are encouraged to answer.
All coats are hung on the pegs in the corridor on arrival and bags are hung in our toilet area – please ensure these are clearly labelled.
Children arriving at 12pm will do the same as above but will then go through to the lunch room with there packed lunch.
What does my child have to bring with them?
During our sessions children have access to water, paint and outdoor play and can get wet or dirty so it is advisable to bring a clearly labelled bag with a clean set of clothes.
Adel Pre-School sweatshirts and t-shirts are available to purchase directly from us.
