All Children are Welcome
We are registered to accept up to 28 children each session, with 1 member of staff for every 8 children over three years and 1 member of staff for every child aged two-three. Children are welcome from the age of around two and a half years. Crawshay Pre-school is accessible to all children and families from the local community. We offer flexible sessions and we do not have a catchment area.
Our Admission Process
We operate admissions and allocate sessions to new children through our Waiting List. Our Waiting List is generally arranged in date of birth order with oldest children taking priority, usually regardless of the time spent on the Waiting List. A completed Registration Form must be received in order to add a child to our Waiting List. We generally accept new children into Pre-School at the start of each Autumn (September), Spring (January), and Summer Terms (April). However it is possible to join mid-term. We endevour to allocate session according to parents preference, but is subject to available spaces in each session.
