NEWS FLASH: From April 2013 you may be eligible for free childcare for your 2 year old at Dacre Banks Pre-School Playgroup!

Funding is being made available to families with a child aged between two and three years, available for up to 15 hours per week for up to 38 weeks per year if the family meet certain criteria.

Planning and support will be put in place to enable a positive transition into the early years setting. This can include parent and child visits to the setting, enabling staff to get to know your child and family by completing the ‘All About Me’ record and a reassuring phone call to let you know how your child is settling in during their first sessions.

Families are supported completely throughout the process.

Please feel free to call us (07875 283 281) or call in if you wish to speak to a member of our staff.
