Our core hours are:

The preschool operates a lunch club every day, this runs at the following times:


Monday  12.15pm-1.15pm

Tuesday  12.15pm-1.15pm

Wednesday  12.15pm-1.15pm

Thursday 12.15pm-1:15pm

Friday 12.15pm-1.15pm

The running of the lunch club is dependent on sufficient numbers of children attending it. For those children who do not attend the lunch club, parents will need to pick them up at either 11.45am or 12.15pm. Parents should provide a healthy packed lunch for their children to eat, please see our Food and Drink policy for further information.


We also offer afternoon sessions three days a week, which include lunch club and run until 2.45pm.


        Monday  11.45am til 2.45pm or 12.15pm til 2.45pm

        Tuesday  11.45am til 2.45pm or 12.15pm til 2.45pm

        Wednesday  11.45am til 2.45pm or 12.15pm til 2.45pm


The new afternoon sessions give children a chance to experience longer days at preschool before they start infant/primary school and also offer parents more flexibility in how they choose to send their children to preschool. Afternoons have been introduced as a trial in April 2016 and we hope will prove popular and continue in the future. Afternoon sessions can either start at 11.45am or 12.15pm and run until 2.45pm but must include lunch club (see above) to make the session length worthwhile. Children are also welcome to start at 09.15am and stay a full day until 2.45pm.
