Every Parent / Carer is able to claim for free entitlement from the term following their child’s 3rd birthday.

Children are entitled to up to 15 hours per week free entitlement for 38 weeks of the year, term time only (September to July).

Free entitlement sessions at Dormans Pre-school are:

Monday’s  9:00 till 12:00

Tuesday’s 9:00 till 12:00 or 12:30 till 15:00

Additional Sessions not within the free entitlement sessions cost £13.50 per 3 hour Session.

It is possible for 2 sessions to claim funding on your behalf, providing that no more than 15 hours are being claimed for in total.

If you wish to receive and invoice and are claiming free entitlement, please speak to Clair or Hayley. Invoices are sent for hours that go over the 15 hours free entitlement.

You will receive your invoice at the beginning of each half term.

Once you child is entitled to 15 hours free entitlement the Pre-school manager will discuss this with you. It is a requirement that the manager see’s the original copy of either your child’s birth certificate or passport and takes a copy of the reference number.

Applications recieved are immediately dated and put directly on to our waiting list in order of priority and reciept.

At Dormans Pree-school we give priority in the following order:

  • Local Authority Request
  • A child with SEN
  • Two/Three year old free entitlement funding
  • Children and/or sibblings already within the setting
  • Proximity to the pre-school

Thank you
