Booking in & Fees

We welcome all children from Corfe Castle and the surrounding areas.

We welcome children of any race, religion or background. We are very proud of our experience in catering for children with special needs, and will always do our best to accommodate every child.

Confident children can be booked into any session without their parents from the age of 2. We encourage parents who are thinking of sending their children to us to visit and see for themselves what we have to offer. Prospective parents are welcome to come to our taster sessions, or just drop in anytime. Please contact us for more information, or to arrange a visit.

It is a legal requirement that children are registered with us before they can attend the pre-school. Basically this just involves filling in a short booking in form, and signing your name! Once your child is registered you are free to bring them to taster sessions or start full sessions.

Waiting List
You can put your child's name down for the pre-school whenever you want to, we don't currently have a waiting list, but we do have some sessions that are full.

Fees can be paid by cash, cheque or bank transfer, childcare vouchers, tax free childcare or funded hours.

We accept funded hours, these are currently as follows;

All children are entitled to 15 funded hours weekly from the start of the term after their third birthday.
Some 3- and 4-year olds are entitled to 30 funded hours weekly from the start of the term after their application is successful.
Some 2-year olds are entitled to 15 funded hours weekly the term after their second birthday.
Our morning session is 3 hours, our afternoon is 2.5 hours or our full day is 6 hours. You can use your funding over these sessions however you wish. The half hour lunch is not covered by funding unless you book a full day. If you add lunch on either at the end of a morning session or the start of an afternoon session, it is charged at £3.
