Please note that if there is a waiting list, places will be allocated according to date of birth, and priority given to those that would like to attend all sessions (total 15 hours).

Children are initially admitted on a part-time basis. The sessions increase until they are more confident with the setting.
It is beneficial for your child to attend for a minimum of 2 sessions per week.
