Admissions

Pre-School Places

Admissions Egerton Pre-School is open to children from 2.5 years old until they leave to go to school. The starting dates will change depending on the school term dates. All children are placed on a waiting list. If more children apply than the number of places available, children will be placed in order of age (oldest first) and then priority will be given to:

1) Children who have older siblings who attend Egerton County Primary School

2) Children living in its catchment area.

3) Children living outside the catchment area.

A place at Egerton Pre-School does not guarantee the offer of a place at Egerton Primary School. Pre-school will be in touch approximately a half term before the starting date and a visit will be offered. If the place is accepted, then one induction visit is arranged during the half term before the starting date. The induction visit allows children and their parents/carers to meet the staff and their new playmates, see the routine and become familiar with the pre-school.

Initially 2-5 mornings only (9am – 12pm) will be offered, sessions available will depend on numbers at that time. (2 year olds)

Full day care (9am-3pm) is only available once children turn 3 years old and are ready for full days in our busy pre-school environment. The hours offered to these children will be over 15 hours (over 2.5 days) Any extra sessions/days in addition to these full days will be offered subject to demand and/or availability.

Children in their last year with us before moving on to Primary will be offered up to 30 hours (5days), of which any half day has to be an afternoon to allow morning sessions to be available for our younger children.

NB. Children are prohibited to attend for one day a week only.
