We still have spaces in pre-school for this academic year. Please contact the school for more details.

Information regarding pre-school for next academic year will be shared later in the year.

Pre-school - Key Information

  • Our pre-school follows the ethos, values and policies of St Margaret's lee School. The children are taught by a fully qualified class teacher and nursery nurse.
  • Pre-school follows the same calendar as the school, although some days are taken up for home visits and start dates in September are staggered. Full details of the nursery calendar is shared at the welcome meeting.
  • Children who do not qualify for 30 hour provision can attend full time using our 'top up' option. (see below for details)
  • Children attending full time bring a packed lunch 
  • Parents/carers must commit to either 15 hour funding or 30 hour funding e.g. the school cannot share the funding with another provider
