Ridgeway Under Fives pre-school is based at the Sports and Social Centre in Ridgeway. We care for children in an educational setting which is safe, happy, stimulating and caring. By creating such an environment, we can help all our children develop to fulfill their potential.
We aim to provide high standards of care and education for all children regardless of their race, ability or gender. Our approach is to develop close working partnership with parents in order to support a child’s individual needs and interests.
The pre-school is open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, 8.30 am – 12.30 pm during term-time only. The contact number during session times is 07773633846.
The government provides funding for all children from the beginning of the term after their 3rd birthday. Whilst there is no charge for children who receive a government funded place; we accept a voluntary contribution of 25p per session towards the cost of providing the children with a snack. For 3 year old children who do not receive a government funded place, the cost per 3 hour session from April 2017 is £12.
Depending on uptake of places children may be able to start pre-school from the age of 2 years. If this is the case the cost per 3 hour session from September 2017 is £16.00.
In accordance with government guidelines we are registered to care for 26 children per session. Places are allocated in accordance with our admissions policy.
