Admissions

 

Turvey Pre-school is an excellent provision and we would be delighted to be able to offer your child a place here.  

We offer spaces for children aged 2, 3 and 4 years of age.  

We will try to offer places suited to you, your family and your child’s needs. 

From the term after your child is 3 years, we offer 15 hours of funded hours. These can be used over the week subject to availability. 

For working parents, you may be eligible for 30 hour funding for your 3 /4 year old. We can assist you with this, so please talk to us.  

For further information and to check your eligibility please look here: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk 

We also offer spaces for funded 2 year olds. There is eligibility criteria to claim 15 hours funded space. You can find out more information and how to check whether you are eligible via the parent portal : www.bedford.gov.uk/funding . Please talk to us and we again can support you with this.  

Sessions for 2 year olds or extended hours required would be chargeable. Please see our fees page / policy 

Once you have made your enquiry, we will be in touch as soon as we can to discuss a place for your child. 

Alternatively please feel free to arrange a visit to come and see our pre-school in action and get an inside view of how we run. 

Thank you for your interest. 

 

Sessions and Fees

A £25 registration fee is charged for all new starters, payable before your child starts to confirm their place. It is refunded to you after your child has started or offset against fees.

The time your child spends at Pre-school is charged by the hour, where fees are payable, at a rate of £6.33 per hour (from April 2023). This is reviewed annually.

Fees Policy Oct 23

 

We aim to offer flexibility with the range of sessions available – mornings, afternoons or all day. We are always happy to discuss how we can best meet your needs with regard to sessions for your child.  We usually offer two available drop-off times in the morning (9am or 9.30am), for a session of either 2.5 hours or 3 hours. Afternoon sessions run from 12 noon until 3pm (this includes lunchtime). Please see timetable below for the various possibilities available to you.

Your child can attend an extra session or lunch on top of their regular attendance if wanted, eg if you have an appointment or change to work hours, provided we have space. To find out, ask a member of staff who can check and confirm if there is a place available and will book your child in for that session.

 

Uniform


Uniform at Turvey Preschool is optional, and all we ask is that children come to preschool in clothes which are comfortable, practical and you are happy to get paint and glue on!  We do have our own Turvey Preschool uniform available for purchase.

Sweatshirts £11

T-shirts £5.50

Should you wish to purchase uniform, please speak to a member of staff who will arrange this for you.
