Children who have passed their third birthday are entitled to a grant-funded pre-school place from the following school term. Springles offers pre-school places that qualify for the scheme and so are completely free for parents, with no top-up fees or extra charges.

These places involve attendance for up to five 3 hour sessions per week during school term times.

Morning sessions run from 9:00am to 12:00 pm. Afternoon sessions are held from 1:00pm to 4:00pm. If your child attends morning and afternoon sessions on the same day, you may find a paid-for lunch very convenient.

Similar 3 hour sessions are available during the school holidays for a small fee.

Places can be booked all year round to start after the next half-term. In particular we are currently taking bookings for children whose third birthday falls prior to September 1st to start in the Autumn. These places are filling up rapidly, so we strongly advise booking early.
