We are a preschool, situated on the Wheatfields school site and, in our school, children are currently able to join our Preschool at the age of 3 and start in Reception in the year they turn 5.


Opening times and session times:

Preschool is open from 8.25am to 3.00 pm.  We run 2 sessions and a lunch club:

Morning session (3 hours):  8.25am to 11.25am

Lunch Club:   11.30am to 12.00 noon (please provide your own healthy packed lunch)

Afternoon session (3 hours):   12 noon to 3.00pm 



Preschool charges £4.50 per hour.

Once your child is 3 years old, they are eligible for 15 hours free funding. If both parents are working and circumstances allow, you can apply for 30 hours.


Please see the links below for information on funding:

Free provision (15 hours) for all 3 and 4 year olds can be found here

Eligibility criteria for 30 hours of free childcare can be found here


If you are accessing this funding, your child is eligible to join our lunch club if you wish, at an additional charge of £4.12 per day.

For those children who have 30 hours funded and wish to attend Preschool full time, (5 days x 7 hours = 42 hours per week), then we charge for the additional 5 hours @ £4.12 per hour.

Snacks are provided at Preschool and parents are charged a sum of £10.00 per term for each child as a contribution.
