We will accept children after their second birthday, however every child is different and some may find it harder to cope, so each child will be assessed individually whilst in session and this will be discussed with the parent. Children can attend from two to five sessions per week if places are available. In most instances, children attend for two or three sessions per week (we will not consider less than two sessions per week).
We can offer 2,3 & 4 year funding as well as 30 hour funding.
A non-refundable registration fee of £30.00 (to include t-shirt) is also required to secure your place for pre-school and should be returned with the slip below. Please make cheques made payable to St Margaret’s Pre-School. ONE MONTH’S NOTICE MUST BE GIVEN IF YOU WANT TO WITHDRAW YOUR CHILD.

Late pick up policy
If a child is not collected at their expected collection time and this becomes a regular occurrence a late charge fee will incurred.
If a child is not collected within 15 minutes a charge of £10.00 will be applied.
After the first 15 minutes a penalty charge of £20 for every15 mins thereafter. Plus, the relevant session charge e.g. lunchtime or afternoon session charge or After School Sessions will be applied in line with our charging policy.
We have a uniform at Pre-School, but it is not compulsory. We have sweat shirts and polo shirts available if any parent wishes to purchase them (although you will receive a polo shirt upon registration). Some parents find that the wearing of a Pre-School uniform allows their child to fully explore and experiment with a range of materials and not worry about their clothes being damaged.
