Our Pre-School admissions policy is available for you to view in Pre-School and online here.
Any child seeking a place at Cholsey Pre-school is eligible to register to start at two and a half years old dependent upon available places.
If there are more children than places available priority is given to children who, turn four years old within the academic year (September to September, FS2 year), live within the school’s catchment area and do not attend another preschool or nursery.
Our waiting list is ordered by date of birth within school year cohorts.
In exceptional circumstances (following advice from other agencies) places will be offered at the discretion of the staff and pre-school management committee.
We reserve the right to accelerate the admission of the children of Committee members in order to fulfil our legal obligations of parent participation, especially in the key roles of Chairman, Treasurer, Secretary, Health & Safety and Fundraising. This is to be limited to those Committee members who are actively involved in the running, administration and policy making of the Pre-School. Children will not be accelerated out of their cohort and joining the Committee will not guarantee an accelerated place for any children of the person joining the Committee.
The term after their 3rd birthday, we aim to offer 5 sessions.
Our current policy is subject to review and change according to need and financial restraints.
