Dolphins is a Pre-School (not a nursery) and is open during term-time. We accept children from 2 to 5 years old. Our session times (Monday - Friday from September - July) are:
9.15am - 12.15pm Morning Session**
9.15am - 2.30pm All-day Session**
12.00pm - 2.30pm Afternoon Session **
** "Bolt-On" Early (8.45am - 9.15am) and Late (2.30pm - 3.00pm) sessions available at extra cost subject to availability
The minimum number of sessions any child may take is two per week (taking just one session per week makes our Key Person approach untenable and also the child never properly gets to know his / her peers).
The vast majority of children join at the start of the Autumn term (September). Starts may be available at other times of the year subject to availability (E.g. beginning of Spring & Summer term)
Places at Dolphins are highly sought-after and we recommend that you apply early. We advise parents/carers of prospective new children visit our setting before enrolling. Virtual viewings are also possible.
Our fees are modest. All children are eligible for a total of 15 hours funding per week from the term after their 3rd birthday. Some three and four year olds may also be eligible for additional hours of free childcare per week (30 hours scheme). Further details are available.
