Welcome to Yardley Gobion Pre-School
We try to ensure a friendly happy atmosphere, whilst at the same time encouraging learning for our children through the interesting, fun and enjoyable activities we offer. We are a committee-run Pre-School and a registered charity. We are a member of the Pre-School Learning Alliance. We are inspected regularly by Ofsted to ensure the children’s educational standards are met. We have a qualified staff ratio of 1:6 children, which is higher than the recommendations for the majority of our children as they are over 3 years of age, but we feel it is important for them to have a Member of Staff easily available. Children can attend Pre-School between the ages of 2 years, 6 months and 4 years, 11 months.
We currently run five morning sessions a week Monday to Friday starting at 9am and finishing at 12:00 and 1 afternoon session for rising five’s only (during summer term) 12:00 to 3pm. We also run extended sessions until 1pm for lunch Monday to Friday.
Fees are £11.55 per session. An additional fee of £3 is charged per lunch session. We accept most childcare vouchers.
Effective September 2018, we are going to lower our entrance age from 2 years 6 months to 2 years and we are also looking to offer a staggered start of 8:30am or 9am. (Please speak to a member of staff).
