The pre-school is registered to accept up to 28 children at each session and parents are encouraged to visit the pre-school with their child before they start so that they are familiar with the pre-school.
We take children from the age of 2 and places are charged at £18 per session. For children over 3 years old we can offer up to 15 hours free funding per week from the Government, with any unfunded sessions charged at £5.70 per hour. This may be taken how parents choose, providing we have enough spaces available in the sessions requested.
As part of Early Education Funding, funded children are able to attend a morning session 9am – 12pm, an afternoon session 12.30pm – 3.30pm or all day, 9am – 3.30pm with lunch at 12 noon. Funded children who are attending a morning or afternoon session may also stay for lunch.
We have an Admissions Policy and priority is given to families in Marlow Bottom. If we have space available we will take children from outside of Marlow Bottom, and will consider the following factors, sibling at pre-school, length of time on waiting list, distance to pre-school, family connection or sibling at Burford.
Available Sessions 2019/2020
How to Apply for a Place at Pre-School
Please note that we recommend that 2 year olds attend at least two morning sessions per week and 3-5 year olds up to five sessions per week. We prefer afternoon sessions to be attended only by children who are due to start school the following September, although we can be flexible. Choice of sessions is subject to availability.
