Seedlings Preschool is a small, friendly, dynamic, child orientated pre-school offering a fun learning environment for children aged 2 ½ to rising 5s. We are open 5 days a week 9.00am to 3.00pm, term time only. It is run by a dedicated staff team as part of Sutton Primary Academy.
We offer a variety of sessions each day and accept government funded children from 2-5 years. Non-funded hours are charged at £3.65 per hour.
Situated in our own room with outside play area, we have access to all the of the school facilities such as the teaching kitchen and the large, secure playing fields which include the forest school, pond area and adventure playground. Children do not need to be toilet trained to attend as we have nappy changing facilities available. Our fully qualified staff play alongside the children and encourage them to make choices and extend their learning through child-led play.
There are limited spaces available to preschool children aged 3 and over at Breakfast Club (8.00 – 8.45am) and Afterschool Club (3.05 – 5.30pm). These sessions are run in the preschool room and managed by HMFA Enterprises. Each session needs to be booked in advance to ensure ratios. Parents need to be aware that extended school is not pre-school based as there will be a proportion of older children attending from the Primary school.
There are certain criteria that need to be met before a preschool child is admitted to the extended school provision.
1 Aged over 3
2 Dry and able to use the toilet confidently.
3 Confident with an older age range of children.
Priority is given to children with siblings in the school.
