Registration, Fees and Funding

Our current registration is £30. However this does not apply if you are accessing the free entitlement. We are a community preschool and voluntary donations are appreciated.

You will be invoiced on an itemised bill termly in advance. No refunds will be made for short term or occasional absences due to sickness or holiday.

Funding is available for 2 year olds that meet certain criteria to see if you would be eligible please refer to the following link here

If you wish to apply for funding applications are completed on-line via the West Sussex website which can be accessed here or alternatively contact a member of pre-school staff.

The Universal Funding is available from the term after your child turns 3 for 15 hours per week for 38 weeks a year. We will inform parents when their child becomes eligible for this and will provide a parent declaration form to complete to secure the funding. Children claiming Universal Funding must be attending by “head count” day.

If you would like to visit the pre-school for a tour and meet the staff please contact the pre-school on 01342 325515 or via email and we will be happy to arrange a visit and discuss enrolment.

Before your child’s first day you will be sent a welcome letter including the registration, terms and conditions form, also consent forms and the latest newsletter

We have optional Pre-School T-Shirts for sale please contact the staff for available sizes and prices.

We ask for each child to bring a named set of spare clothes, Wellington boots, slippers and nappies/trainer pants etc. if required and dress appropriately for the weather as we do go outside all year round.

We require 6 weeks notice if your child will be leaving AWCP for reasons other than going to school.
