Admissions Policy

New starters will be required to attend 2 sessions, or more, per week. More sessions will be offered after their commencement at the pre-school or the term after their third birthday. Additional sessions will be offered providing there are spaces available and will be allocated in date of birth order.

Emergency places will be allocated wherever possible.

For more information, please see our admissions policy.


This is based on the current funding regulations set by the government that all children aged 3 years and over will be funded for a maximum of 15 hours.

We offer the 30 hours childcare scheme. Due to our current opening hours we are able to facilitate 24 hours per week for working families. Please go to https://www.bucksfamilyinfo.org/kb5/buckinghamshire/fsd/advice.page?id=2v7oIng2SVk& to see if you are eligible.

Funding commences in the term after the child’s third birthday. A child must be 3 before the 31st March, 31st August or 31st December to qualify for funding for the following term. Funding is also available for some 2 year olds the term after their 2nd birthday.

Please go to https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/education/early-years-and-childcare/free-early-education-and-childcare/free-childcare-for-2-year-olds/ to see if you may be eligible. Children under the age of 3, who are not funded, will be charged fees.

All funded hours will start from the beginning of the week and any hours over and above this will be charged as fee paying hours on the session after the funded hours expire.


Our fee per hour for 3 and 4 year olds is £5.50; for 2 year olds it is £6.00.
