We hope we have been able to cover any questions you may have about the service we offer at Broughton pre-school. If not, do please feel free to contact us.
Your child can start from when they turn two years old.
No, we have nappy changing facilities and will work with you when it's time to toilet train your child.
Yes, we are a fully inclusive pre-school and will work with you and other professionals to ensure that your child's needs are met.
The government provides funding for 15 hours per week free for all children from the term following their 3rd birthday. For example, if a child turns 3 in October 2022 they will receive funding from January 2023.
15 hours free funding is also available for eligible 2 year olds.
Eligible parents can also claim up to 30 hours free for their 3 & 4 year olds (again from the term following a child's 3rd birthday).
Please see the 'News' article on the website for more information about eligibility for funding.
Unfunded time is charged by the hour, our current hourly rate is £6.75.
A healthy snack each day - fresh fruit or vegetables only please.
We will ask you to provide a water bottle to keep at pre-school.
If your child is in nappies please send in a supply of nappies and wipes.
A bag (not drawstring) with a full change of clothes, more than one if toilet training!
A pair of wellies to keep at pre-school is very useful.
We believe that to settle in effectively, form positive relationships and get the most from their time at our pre-school, children need to attend regularly. As such, we require that all children attend for a minimum of two sessions (on different days) per week.
Yes, lunch time is between 12 and 1pm. Your child can either bring a healthy packed lunch or order a hot school lunch.
School lunches are cooked on site in the Primary School's kitchen and cost £3.25 (inc. VAT) per day for a nutritionally balanced main and dessert.
Yes, by all means. A familiar toy from home can be comforting when settling in.
However we cannot accept responsibility for items from home, so please bear this in mind when deciding whether or not to send an item in, especially if it's valuable or irreplaceable.
We discourage the use of dummies in pre-school children as they can cause difficulties with speech and the development of teeth. They can also cause excessive dribbling resulting in sore lips and chin.
Yes, all permanent staff are qualified Paediatric First Aider's and renew their training every 3 years.
