Many thanks to all the families and friends that came to support the children singing. The children were fantastic! We would also like to thank all those that sponsored the children. You raised a massive £573.65 for the Pre School! With the funds we have purchased equipment for the children including a giant caterpillar play centre, a wigwam and cosy wicker boat reading corner.

ST ALBAN'S PRE SCHOOL
St Alban’s Pre School was established in 1981 and has continued to thrive and develop since then. Our fully qualified and very experienced staff meet the needs of all our children in promoting their independence and developing their skills for the future. We operate a Key Person system with a high ratio of staff to children.
At St Alban’s Pre School we aim to offer a safe, stimulating, fun, warm and friendly environment. Children are able to enjoy learning, promote their independence and grow in confidence.
AIMS AND OBJECTIVES
We aim to provide:
At St Alban's Pre School we endeavour to provide an opportunity for every child to learn through play in a safe stimulating environment, use their imagination and creativity and gain confidence by developing their skills and abilities.
St. Alban’s Pre School is a happy, thriving community of Pre School children and staff. The group are housed in a classroom in the grounds of St. Alban’s School. The premises are well stocked with a range of quality equipment. The Pre School also has a wonderful outside classroom with free access.
The hard-working and committed staff are employed by the governing body of St. Alban’s School – the school to which we hope the children will transfer when they become eligible for full-time education.
St. Alban’s Pre School is not directly funded by the Local Authority. From the term after their third birthday, Pre School children do receive grants from the Local Authority for up to 15 hours. For the younger children fees will be chargeable – please contact Mrs Mercer for details. For the 2017/18 year fees will be £12 (3 hours) per session.
In order to promote a high quality Pre School education for our children we have formulated a number of policies which are available below.
Pre School sessions are as follows:-
Mornings: 8.45am – 11.45am
Afternoons: 12.15pm – 3.15pm
All Day: 8:45am - 3.15pm
Lunch Club 11:45 - 12:15pm
In the event of any problems, difficulties or worries about your child at Pre School, a member of staff will be available for you to speak to at any time during a Pre School session. Mrs Mercer is available at all sessions and your child’s key person will be available, if not working that day, by appointment at the earliest opportunity.
If you are unsure about any aspect of how Pre School is run, please ask. Pre School is always looking for help in many different ways, perhaps you are just the person we need.
