Visit Freshford Preschool
We welcome all prospective parents/carers to visit our preschool, meet the staff and familiarise themselves with our setting. Please telephone the preschool on 07928 013998 during session times to make an appointment.
You can register your child for Freshford Preschool via our online registration form.
Please contact us to check session availability before completing the registration form. We ask that all children attend a minimum of twelve hours each week, which can be taken as two full days (9am-3pm) or as three morning sessions (9am - 1pm). This helps children settle into the preschool quickly and get the most from our weekly programme of activities. Our full Admissions Policy is in our policy document and explains our criteria for offering places at Freshford Preschool.
Please take the time to review our Policies and Procedures before completing the registration form as you will be asked to confirm your agreement to some of our policies, such as our Fees and Donations Policy within the registration form.
We invite all new applicants to consider making a voluntary registration donation of £30. This donation covers the costs associated with new children joining the preschool. We offer at least one free taster session in term 6, prior to your child’s start in September. We also arrange a home visit from your child's play partner (key worker).
All these activities involve extra staff time which is not covered by the Early Years Entitlement Grant. We must emphasise that this donation is optional, and you will still be offered the same introductory sessions whether you have made a donation or not. If you would like to make a donation then please do so through our Mydonate account.
Primary school links
While the majority of our preschool children transition to Freshford Primary School attendance at Freshford Preschool does not guarantee a Reception place for your child at the school. Parents are required to apply for a place at Freshford School through their local authority via the annual school applications process. If you have any queries about this process, please contact Freshford Primary School or your local authority.
Applications to join Freshford Preschool are now being taken for September 2019
