Our preschool has space for 40 children at each session. We offer 5 morning sessions each week from 9am to 12 noon, during term time.
We are a member of the Early Years Alliance (ELA) which means we are run and managed by a voluntary committee led mainly by parents and carers. We are very proud of our community led preschool, as we know when parents become actively involved in their child’s learning & development from an early age, there are clear benefits for the children.
Our children move on to lots of different primary schools in the community and beyond, including Greenmount Primary School, Holcombe Brook Primary School, Summerseat Methodist Primary School, Tottington Primary School, St Mary’s C.E. Primary School, Emmanuel Holcombe C.E. Primary School, Holly Mount Roman Catholic Primary School and Old Hall Primary School. Many of our children leaving for big school will already have formed friendships here in preschool that are going to the same primary school.
FEES & FUNDING
We offer fee paying and funded sessions at our preschool. As we are a charity, all income goes towards preschool and our children, not anyone else.
We offer funded places for children aged 2, 3 and 4. You can find out if your child qualifies on Bury Council’s website or ask us for more information.
Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding that early years settings can receive to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds. Children must receive free early education in order to attract EYPP funding. All 3 and 4 year olds are able to apply for the Early Years Pupil Premium, although not all children will be eligible.
