About


We are a voluntary-managed group with over 30 years experience of providing pre-school education. Most of our staff members are Level 3 qualified, offering a high level of provision for pre-school age children in a caring and fun environment.

Previously we ran our group from the local village hall but thanks to lots of hard work, grants and generous donations from local businesses we now have our own building. We think it's great - and we hope you do too!

We are delighted that Hauxton Pre-School has been rated 'Good' by Ofsted in its latest report! You can read it here.

Practicalities

Settling in – most children benefit from visiting the pre-school for at least one session before starting. Following that we suggest you join the first session at 10am, which gives us a chance to get the other children settled. You are then welcome to stay as long as you feel your child needs you. Following this first session we can then agree how to manage future sessions, i.e. whether you wish to collect them early.

What to bring – as many children have different needs we ask that you provide them with a snack and a drink in clearly labelled containers.  In hot weather please apply sunscreen beforehand and ensure a HAT is worn!

Toilet Training – we DON’T require that your child is toilet trained before joining the Pre-school. For that reason we accept children from 2 years of age. Please provide nappies, nappy bags and wipes in a clearly labelled bag. The staff will change nappies as required but we do not have nappy bins so parents will be required to dispose of bagged nappies. Staff are happy to accommodate children through potty training.

Clothes – we suggest that your child wears play clothes as some activities can get messy, and although children wear aprons we cannot make any guarantees. We try to go outside most sessions, so in the winter make sure they have warm coats, hats and wellies if possible. A spare, labelled set of clothes should be provided where possible.

Safety – we are conscious of the need to provide a safe and secure environment for the children and to supervise them closely at all times. There are regular safety checks by the authorities on the premises and pre-school. At least one member of staff is trained in first aid and resuscitation.

Aims

The aims of the Pre-School are to enable each child to:

  • Enjoy and benefit from the company of other children
  • Learn to share and communicate
  • Behave appropriately in a group and follow instructions
  • Develop and explore ways of self-expression
  • Gain new information about the world around them

Fees

Fees are £4.60 per hour for those children who do not yet receive their free provision, or who are doing extra hours above their free provision.

We are registered to accept Early Years Education Funding (EYEF) for all children after their third birthday through to the term they turn 5.

Fees are generally payable half-termly but other arrangements can be made where necessary. If fees are paid late then a £10 late payment penalty will be applied.

We do accept payment via Childcare Vouchers, as operated by Kiddivouchers and Computershare for example. If you would be interested in paying in this way then please speak to the Pre-school Treasurer for more details.

Fees continue to be payable if a child is absent, due to either sickness or holidays. In cases of prolonged absence, parents should consult the Pre-school leader.

 

Sickness and holidays

Sickness - If your child is feeling unwell or is ‘under the weather’ we ask that you keep your child at home. Please advise us as soon possible when it turns out to be an infectious illness such as chicken pox or headlice so we can advise other parents.

A child with sickness and /or diarrhoea should not return to pre-school for at least 48 hours after the last attack, so they have a chance to fully recover.

If your child is feeling particularly tired after a full session then shorter sessions can be arranged by agreement.

There is space on the enrolment form for details of allergies and special medical conditions that a child may have. Please make sure you complete this and also keep us up-to-date with any changes.

Holidays – if your child will not be attending due to holiday please let us know so we can keep track of who will and won't be there on a particular session.

Cancelling a place

A £25.00 booking fee is required to register your child at Hauxton Pre-school and we do require suitable notice when cancelling a place. If you wish to reduce or cancel your child’s place at pre-school, a half terms notice will be required. During that time fees remain payable whether or not your child attends.


Events


We often have events associated to the pre-school, we also do fundraising events and are keen for input if anybody has any fresh ideas to come forward and suggest them.
