Admission Criteria

Parchmore Pre-School is open to ALL families in the community. We welcome children regardless of gender, class, family status, disability, colour, ethnic origin, culture or religious belief. Children with disabilities or learning difficulties are considered a priority for admission whenever possible. We admit children from the age of two years (only 50% can be under 3 years old.) Once the Pre-School is full, we operate a waiting list arranged according to the date of birth of your child, rather than a first-come, first-served basis.


If your child is eligible for the two year old funding or is three/four years old they are entitled to receive 15 hours a week the term after their birthday.

To receive 15hours of free funding you may do 5 morning/afternoon 3 hour sessions or 3 full day 5 hour sessions (9am to 2pm or 10am to 3pm). The hours have to be used weekly and cannot be carried over to the next week. e.g. Your child can’t attend for 10 hours one week and then 20 hours the following week.

Your child will receive funding for 38 weeks in a school year, which runs from September to July.

There are no admission fees, the only extra costs would be if you wanted your child to attend for more than 15 hours a week, please see previous page for the charges.

Parchmore Pre-school    Term time 30 Hours offer

We offer 3 hour packages of education and care in the morning and afternoon, for children who will only access 15 hours a week we will be able to offer 3 hours for 5 days or 5 hours for 3 days.

Parents who require sessions not listed must speak with the manager to see what is available.

The morning and afternoon sessions are funded, children staying for lunch along with a morning session pay £4.75. Three of the 5 hour sessions are funded in a week.
