Children will be allocated a place at the Piglets pre-School once the registration form and fee is received. An initial registration fee of £30 is payable via cheque or bank transfer, which is not refundable.
Allocation of Places
Children are allocated places on a first-come, first-served basis. We currently have limited places available but should we become full again in the future, a waiting list will be held to allocate places fairly. We are unable to offer your child a place at the pre-school until a registration form is completed and the registration fee is paid.
We welcome visits anytime during the school term. If you’d like to arrange a taster session, please contact us and our manager Suzanne will be glad to arrange a time with you.
Free Funding Applications
To register, please contact us prior to the start times in September, January, and April.
For further information, please feel free to ask the staff or visit the following websites:
SELECTING A PRE-SCHOOL
Selecting the right pre-school is important so
we welcome you and your child to visit our setting,
to meet the staff and see a session in progress.
You child will enjoy:
- Stimulating indoor/outdoor activities
- Role play
- Arts and crafts
Please contact us to arrange a session.
Declining Place Offered
If you decide to decline your child’s place once allocated and confirmed in writing, please write to the manager as soon as possible so that place can be offered to another child. The registration fee is not refunded.
Children generally settle in very quickly and attending a taster session or two really helps them to become part of the Piglet’s family. However, if they are unsettled, please consider increasing their sessions, rather than reduce them. We find that the more sessions they attend, the more familiar they become with the daily routines. We recommend that children attend a minimum of 2 sessions a week on separate days.
If for any reason you need to change your session days on a permanent basis, please talk to us about availability. Requests are subject to staffing and availability but we will do all we can to help.
A written notice period of 2 weeks is required if you wish to withdraw your child from Piglets pre-school. If they are in receipt of funding and you are switching to another childcare provider, please be aware that you will not be able to transfer that period’s funding session to another setting until that funding block expires.
