Meldreth Preschool is currently accepting applications for new starters and we are keen to welcome children from the age of 2 into the setting. Although we currently have some availability, we encourage anyone who is considering Meldreth Preschool for their child to get in touch as soon as possible to ensure that they can secure the sessions that suit them best.
Our registration process is simple - you can either download our application form or come into the setting to speak to a member of staff and pick up a form there.
Meldreth Preschool is open on week days during term time, from 9am until 3pm. Our morning session runs from 9 - 12 and our afternoon session is from 12 - 3. Lunch is served in the afternoon session and provides an opportunity for the children to get used to eating a packed lunch with their friends.
We are a healthy eating setting and we encourage families to provide a lunch which helps the children to make healthy choices. We ask parents not to send their children in with nuts or products containing nuts and to let us know of any allergies or intolerances their children have to enable us to provide a safe environment for them.
Our fees are £5 per hour per child, but we are an Ofsted registered setting and we can claim the Nursery Education Grant Fundingfor 15 hours of preschool education a week for three and four year olds. Children are eligible for the 15 free hours from the term after their third birthday. We are also offering the 30 hours for qualifying children, so if you are eligible for this scheme then you can apply here.
We are also registered with a number of childcare vouchers schemes so if you use one of these to help save money on your childcare fees then let us know and we can ensure that the admin is in place to accept the vouchers from the scheme you use.
