Pre-School

Great Denham Pre-School is a school run Pre-School. This means that the Headteacher and Governors of the school are responsible for running it, however the day to day running will be the responsibility of the Pre-School Manager, Mrs Bev Wilson. The Pre-School is open for children aged three and above until they start in Reception and there will be an adult to child ratio of 1-8 as outlined in the Early Years Foundation Stage guidelines. Learning will be planned and delivered by experienced staff in accordance with the Early Years Foundation Stage and there will be close links and liason with the Reception staff to ensure there is a smooth transition for those children that move onto Great Denham Primary School.

Government funding means that all three and four year olds not in school are entitled to 15 hours funding from the term after their third birthday. Extra sessions will be available for parents to book for which there will be a charge of £11.10.  The morning session runs  from 8.45am until 11.45am and the afternoon from 12.15pm – 3.15pm.
