Subject to availability…

Cholsey Pre-school currently accepts children from the age of 2½. It is our aim to group children together with those of a similar age.  In the term after your child has turned 2 ½ we offer 2 afternoon sessions at Pre-school.  The term after your child turns 3 they are entitled to 15 hours of Government funded education and they can use these at preschool subject to availability. The September after they turn 3 these can be spread between 3 and 5 days.
