We take children from the age of 2 and places are charged at £18.00 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 £6.00 per hour. This may be taken how parents choose, providing we have enough spaces available in the sessions requested.
We also accept funding from working parents who are eligible for the extended entitlement, which provides an additional 15 hours of funding, and so a total of 30 hours per week (although preschool is limited to 29 hours per week).
We have an Admissions Policy and priority is given to families in Marlow Bottom. However, we regularly accept children from further afield, such as Marlow, High Wycombe and Flackwell Heath.
Early Morning Drop Off
Early morning drop offs are booked on a half-termly basis, for example, every Monday and Tuesday for the half term.
The fee for early morning drop off is £3.50 per session. As this is an extra service, it is not covered by government funding and is charged per half term.
Available Sessions 2020/2021
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.
