The preschool is open for 38 weeks a year and closely follows the Surrey school term dates. We are closed for all bank holidays and some polling days.

We are an extended day preschool that mainly offers care to children attending 'full days' with us, however we do have a limited number of morning only spaces available, which may be ideal for younger children. We ask that 2 year olds attend a minimum of two sessions over at least two days, and that children in their last year before school attend a minimum of four sessions per week and would strongly recommend at least one full day in preparation for school.

Full Days (9.00am - either 3.00pm, 4.00pm or 5.00pm depending on days)

For children staying with us all day we ensure that their needs are met through providing a wide range of activities and resources throughout the day, opportunities for outdoor play in the fields, woodlands and playgrounds, quiet cosy areas for children to rest, separate sleeping areas for children who require a nap, and that their Key Person will be with them all day for reassurance and any emotional support that they may need. We provide a healthy, bento box style packed lunch for a small cost or if your child's session is fully funded parents canprovide their own. For children staying until 5.00pm we provide a cooked meal at teatime which is included at no additional cost.

We also provide sunhats and suncream for afternoon top-ups. 

Parents will need to provide a bag with a complete spare change of clothes, a refillable drinks bottle and two pieces of fruit or vegetables for snack. In the summer months parents will need to apply suncream to children before they arrive at preschool. 

Morning sessions (9.00am - 12.00pm or 1.00pm)

These shorter sessions allow children to begin to socialise in groups, and to join in with our morning activities that are on offer and enjoy our enclosed outdoor area. Children have the option to either stay until 1.00pm and join us for lunch, or go home before lunch at 12.00pm. If staying until 1.00pm we provide a healthy, bento-box style lunch for a small cost or if your child has a fully funded session parents can opt to provide their own. All morning children will need to bring either a piece of fruit or vegetables for snack.
