Fees and admissions

You can contact us to book your child’s place here. We would be delighted to welcome you for a visit to the Pre-School.

We have a maximum of 26 children at each session. Some children come to us for five days per week, others for fewer depending on the child’s and the parents’ individual needs and the availability of places.

If you have a younger child wish to pre-register, you can do this for free. Your child will be offered a place at the age of 2 years once places become available. Vacant places are initially offered to children already attending Pre-school and once these requests have been satisfied then any remaining places are offered to the children on the waiting list in birth date order (i.e the eldest first).

When emailing us to request a place, it would be helpful to us if you could include your child’s name, date of birth, home address and telephone number.


Ecclesall Pre-School offers Free Early Learning (FEL) for those that are eligible.

Sessions not covered by FEL are charged at a rate of £5.20 per hour. There is no reduction for holidays, illness or closure due to bad weather.  Fees are reviewed annually.

In addition you will be invoiced termly for the provision of a snack for your child at a rate of 50p per child per day. Aside from this, there are no further charges for “extras.”

Please also let us know whether there are medical, social or educational conditions that we need to be aware of before you child starts Pre-school or if there are any changes in your circumstances.
