About Us Pound Hill Pre-School is a registered charity which has been established for over 50 years and is a member of the Pre-school Learning Alliance. The Pre-School currently employs 15 dedicated and hardworking practitioners who all contribute to creating a safe learning environmentthat is fortified with enriched experiences that encompass the voice of the child in addition to meeting the needs of all attending children and their families. We are a fully inclusive community group managed by a committee of volunteers/ parents.
Admissions We aim to provide a placement for all children on our waiting list once they have reached their 3rd Birthday. If this is not possible a placement will be offered as soon as it becomes available. There are a limited number of spaces available for children aged 2 years for each session. We hold settling sessions and play visits for children joining. If you would like to register, please download and print our registration form (see below) or ask at the Pre-School for a copy.
Fees Every child is entitled to 'Nursery Education funding' the term after their 3rd birthday. Currently Fees for non funded children are £4.80 per hour for over 3's and £5.20 per hour for 2 year old's (this is reviewed annually). We also accept the free entitlement funding for eligible 2 year old's as provided by the Government.
Uniforms Uniforms are available for the children consisting of a T-shirt and Sweatshirt. This saves the children's own clothes getting too messy! Pound Hill Pre-School has an excellent garden so we strongly advise that children attending wear appropriate clothing and footwear (clearly named please!). We provide aprons for messy play but we advise that children wear uniform - or old clothes. If you would like to purchase any uniform, please download a uniform form and hand to a member of staff along with payment.
Parental involvement in sessions and donations... To all parents and carers! Please support us by putting your name down on the parent’s rota to help during sessions. Alternatively you could help out at fundraising events or even donate items for our raffles. We are always extremely grateful for any support you are able to offer.
