Settling in

We offer settling in visits to enable you child to get used to coming along to pre school. Please speak to the manager to arrange your visit.

Parking/Drop off

Dark lane is a private road and we sometimes have complaints from the residents about inconsiderate parking.

Please note the following rules to help ease congestion:

  • Share lifts whenever feasible
  • Walk to school, perhaps using the cricket pitch and spinney
  • Park for as short time as possible
  • Consider using the village car park and walking across the cricket field
  • Do not obstruct driveways or park on the grassed area opposite
  • Please park on the school side of the road - this means you need to wait your turn and drive up to the turning circle and drive back down the lane into a space
  • Do not use the school car park or gateway for turning around
  • Please use the pedestrian gate entrance to the school.

We require a minimum of 6 weeks written notice if you wish to decrease the number of sessions you need or if you no longer require your child's place.



Invoices will be left in your child's tray and must be paid within two weeks of being issued otherwise your child will not be admitted into preschool. Late payments will incur a £15 charge and £5 per week thereafter. If payment is not made after this your child's place may be withdrawn in line with the powers of the committee in section 3.1 of the constitution.



Children will receive their 15 hours government funding the term after their 3rd birthday and you will need to fill out a form to claim this which you can get from the Manager. We currently offer a limited amount of places for the 30 hours free entitlement, please enquire with us to check if we have space for the sessions you require. To find out if you may qualify for this entitlement please see the childcare choices website. We provide places for 2 year olds who are government funded - please ask for more details.
Early Years Pupil Premium is an additional payment made to us on your behalf if you are in receipt of certain benefits (income support, job-seekers and tax credits) so do let us know if this applies to you.


We ask parents to provide resources to help us keep costs down, keep an eye out on the door for things we need.
