Pre-School

We are very excited to be opening our Pre-School for 3 - 4 year olds in September 2018.

We promote an approach to education which is based on the core values of mutual respect, self-esteem, dignity and critical awareness.The inclusive nature of our unique ethical curriculum ensures no child is ever placed in a position in which they feel themselves an outsider. Our pre-school will be based in our temporary building, sharing a wonderful outside learning space as a unit with our Reception class.

Our pre-school will offer:

-A qualified teacher working in our EYFS classroom with the support of a teaching assistant.

-A unique ethical curriculum.

-A place where no child is an outsider.

-A well-resourced indoor and outdoor learning environment.

-The option to purchase additional sessions if required.

Please call Steve Davis (Headteacher) or Nikki Buglass (Development Officer) on (0117) 379 0777 or e-mail info@parklandset.org.uk if you would like to find out more about our ethos and pre-school provision.

Frequently Asked Questions

Please send us an e-mail or call us if you have any questions regarding our pre-school. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions.

Q: I need some help with choosing sessions for my child.

A: Please send us an e-mail at info@parklandset.org.uk if our current offering does not suit your situation. We can then look at this on an individual basis.

Q: Can my child start pre-school from as soon as they turn 3?

A: We are currently accepting children in the term after their third birthday. Our intake points each year will be September, January and April. Please see our Admissions Policy for more details.

Q: Will my child have lunch at school if they attend half-days?

Children who are only attending in the morning will not have lunch at school. All children who are attending in the afternoons, and all full-time children will have a hot dinner cooked by our chef at a cost of £2.50 per meal. Alternatively children can come with their own packed lunches.

Q: I am interested in wrap-around care.

If there is enough interest, and parental demand, then we would look into offering extended care. This would be at an additional cost and we would anticipate that it would include breakfast and after-school club. We would only be able to offer this is there was enough demand to make it financially viable. We have included a question about this on our application form.

If your application is dependent on the availability of wrap-around care, you can complete an application and ask to be put on our waiting list.
