You can register your child at any time. However, it is advisable to register them at least one year before you wish them to start, as places can fill up quickly. Please use the registration form located here:
We ask for a £20.00 deposit per child which is fully refundable when your child starts.
There are two intakes per term:
When your child is 2 years and 9 months they can start the half term after this age. For example is your child is 2 years and 9 months on 2nd October they could start after the October half term.
The Pre-school recommends your child starts with a minimum of two sessions per week, as we have found this helps the children to settle more quickly.
If you require full day care, the Pre-school offers 5 full days, if spaces are available. (i.e. one full day is from 9.00am to 3.00pm, including lunch club)
Should your child attend another early years settings as well as Puddletown Pre-school, we recommend they attend a minimum of two sessions with us, to help with integration, avoid disruption and to enable your child to get the most out of their time at our Pre-school.
The Pre-school will try and meet your requests as far as possible. In the event that a particular session is full, an alternative may be offered, subject to availability.
