We are members of the Pre-School Learning Alliance, which has over 40 years experience, and through its membership we are constantly in touch with new thinking in the field of child education and care.
With the support of the Wiltshire Early Years Team, staff receive regular, up-to-date training in all areas of skills and knowledge. All staff are trained in first-aid and child protection.For children not covered by the Governments funding, the fees per hour are £3.50, payable on the day or in advance, this will still be payable should your child be absent for any reason. From September 2010 the way children are funded is changing. 15 hours per week will be paid for by the Government beginning the term after their 3rd birthday.
Funding is available for all ages please ask for details. Each child’s attendance at the group is conditional upon continued payment of any necessary fees.
We will provide milk and a snack during the session but you are welcome to bring a drink of your own. Toys brought into the Pre-School must be at the parents/carers risk. If your child has to take medication i.e. allergies/asthma, please bring the medication with you and sign the medication book, giving consent for staff to be able to administer it if needed.
Please let us know details of all persons collecting your child, it is especially important if this changes for any reason on any session.
