Ditchling Pre School Group

Ditchling Pre School Group

A friendly, community pre-school formed in l969, to meet the needs of families with young children in the village and surrounding areas. The sessions, run by a team of qualified, experienced and nurturing staff, led by a qualified teacher, aim to help each child (from 2 to 5 years) gain confidence, independence and social skills, and enhance their development in all areas of learning through play.

Ditchling Pre-School Group is a registered charity and is managed by a voluntary elected committee predominantly made up of parents.

The group provides up to 24 places per session and meets at the Scout Headquarters, East End Lane, Ditchling, which has a spacious wooden floored hall and a large sensory garden.  We run on weekdays in term time. We start each day at 9.15am with an option to leave at 12.15 each day. The later finish times are: Mondays and Tuesdays, 2.45pm, Wednesdays to Fridays 1.15pm. Tuesday afternoons are reserved for the older children who will be moving on to school the following September.

We also run an Early Bird session on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 8.55 and 9.15 at a cost of £2 for each 20 minute session.

Children are funded for 15 hours per week from the term after they become 3 years old.  For younger children and hours above 15 hours, our rate is £6.00 per hour, rising to £7 per hour in April 2017.

Please contact us to arrange a visit with your child.
