Children aged three to four are entitled to 15 hours of free early years education.

There are three intakes during the year – September, November and January.

We will visit you and your child at home before your child starts with us in Pre-School. This is to allow you to ask any questions you have and to allow your child to meet us in an environment that is familiar to them.
