Children can join our Pre-school from 2 years and 6 months. Children can not start mid term, only at the beginning of a term after they are 2 years and 6 months. Unless exceptional circumstances.
Each session costs £12 until the term after your child’s third birthday (with the start date for these terms being the beginning of the school year in September, January and the beginning of the term after the Easter holidays).
We recommend that your child joins at the beginning of a term, however we try to accommodate other start dates. Please discuss this with the Registration Officer.
At the start of the first term after your child is 3 years old, he or she is eligible for government funding for up to 15 hours per week. This is equivalent to 5 of our sessions as each session is 3 hours. Additional sessions above your child’s 15 funded hours are charged at £12.
Complete an application to join form. This can be completed online (click here) or can be downloaded (click here) and sent to Registrations Officer, Aston & Cote Pre-school, Cote Road, Aston, Bampton, Oxfordshire, OX18 2DU. The registrations Officer will contact you via email to confirm receipt of the form.
The Registrations Officer will contact you approximately mid term before the term your child starts to confirm whether your requested sessions are available and that your child has been booked on them. If your requested sessions are full we will contact you to offer alternative sessions.
Once your child has started with us, we require a minimum of one terms notice to any change in sessions unless there are exceptional circumstances.
We invite you and your child to come for an introductory session before they start. This introduction usually happens some time during the last couple of weeks at the end of the term before your child is due to start. This gives you and your child the chance to familiarise yourself with a typical session and helps your child to feel more at home when they next visit and stay on their own. The introductory session is free.
