Pre School

The Pre-school opened in 1973 and is a voluntary group affiliated to the Pre-School Learning Alliance.  We are a registered charity and are managed by a committee and financed by fees and fundraising activities.

It is held in Sutton Village Hall, which has a safe and secure play area and is situated in a lovely position.

Its rural location means that it has a large catchment area, attracting children from outlying villages.  Parent/Carer help and involvement is very much encouraged and appreciated.

The Pre-School provides 24 - 26 places per session and is open 39 weeks of the year.  We open 5 days of the week in which we provide care and education for young children between the ages of 2 and 5 years. These are our opening hours:

Monday to Friday mornings from 9 to 12

Monday, Tuesday and Thursday afternoons 12 to 15 

We provide 15 hrs of free funding for all 3-4 years olds. If you are eligible we also offer free funding spaces for under 2yrs and up to 26hrs of your 30hrs free funding entitlement (you don't need to use all your entitlement in one setting).

We adhere to a ratio of

  • 1 staff to 8 children age 3 & 4 years
  • 1 staff to 4 children age 2 years
