Lindal Pre School and Toddlers runs during school term time. Our sessions are largely child led and child initiated; we believe that the best education for young children comes with watching children play and planning around things they enjoy. This gives them the best opportunities for exploration and development. For those children aged 3-4 in their pre-school year, "school readiness" is vitally important and we ensure they have some tailored sessions to help with preparation for entering school reception.
Our setting is directly opposite the village green and we spend many of our sessions outside in all weathers learning from the natural world, where the children are encouraged to explore nature in a safe environment. We also have an enclosed outdoor yard that has been newly renovated and provides opportunities for independent outdoor play.
We offer the children a healthy snack and milk or water during each session, but children attending for lunch will need to bring a packed lunch. Our sessions are quite flexible and your child can attend as many or few as you wish, but we do ask you provide at least 4 weeks written notice to reduce their hours in order to adequately change our staff rota. Most children attend the same sessions every week, but we are able to accommodate changes; for example if you work a shift pattern.
Our fees are £4.20 per hour
Please note: if you are unable to collect your child before the session finishes please let us know, otherwise you will be charged the session rate.
