The Totstars Pre-School accepts children from the age of 2 years old up to 5 years old (before they start school). Children will be considered for entry to the Totstars Pre-school once the registration form has been completed and returned to us.
An administration/registration fee has to be paid when you take up a place. This will include a Tots tars uniform (smock) bag and water bottle.
All 2 year olds and non-funded children places are charged at £16 per session (9.15am – 12.15pm) which includes a healthy snack and sports coaching.
All 3 year olds are funded the term after their 3rd birthday. The Government funding entitles your child 15 hours a week until the age of 5 years.
Upon registration, a fee of £35.00 is required, which will include a uniform (smock), water bottle and bag for your child. Please ensure your child comes into preschool with a pair of plimsoles to change into, and appropriate clothing, i.e. wellies and rain mac/ sun hat etc.
The fees are payable half-termly in advance. Fees must still be paid if children are absent. For your child to keep her/his place at the setting, you must pay your fees on time. We are in receipt of nursery education funding for three and four year olds this is deducted from your fees; where funding is not received, then full fees apply.
Some children settle in almost immediately and others take several weeks.
It is important that your child feels completely comfortable in pre-school before they are left. Staff will work closely with each parent/carer and child to ensure a smooth and happy transition into pre-school life.
We hope that you and your child enjoy being members of our setting and that you both find taking part in our activities interesting and stimulating. The staff are always ready and willing to talk with you about your ideas, views or questions.
