About Us‎ > ‎

Session information

Sessions run Monday to Friday from 08.45 am to 11.45 am and 11.45 am to 14.45 pm. Children are welcome to attend both sessions in a single day. Your child will automatically be offered a place as soon as a vacancy becomes available following your child becoming 2 ½ years.

Lunch club

We run a lunch club on Monday to Friday (11.45 am – 12.15 pm).  Children who attend an afternoon session bring their healthy packed lunch with them and lunch club is included in their session.  However if you wish your child to stay for lunch club and it is not included in the session there is an extra cost of £2.50 per day for this facility.  You will need to pre-book space for your child, please speak with a member of staff for further information.

Cost

The current cost per session is £13.00.  Government funding is currently available in Oxfordshire for children starting at the beginning of the term following their 3rd birthday, until they go to school.  This means the Local Education Authority provide a free place for your child to attend a recognised early years education provider for up to 5 sessions per week.  We are, of course, a recognised early years education provider.

A donation of £7.00 per term will be requested per child to cover the cost of fruit provided by the pre-school for the children’s snack time.

Staff/child ratio

The staff/child ratio is at least 1 adult to 8 children, 3 and over and 1 adult to 4 children, under 3.  Our staff are trained and experienced early years workers.  We welcome parents coming in to help at sessions and any other family involvement in the running of Pre-school and fund-raising events.

Term lengths

We are open over 6 terms per year, normally covering 38 weeks.
