Fees and Funding
All Saints Wise Owls is open Monday to Friday 9am to 3pm, 38 weeks of the year (during term time).
We offer an additional pick up time of 3.15pm to those who need it (primarily those children who have siblings in All Saints School). More information will be shared on booking.
We are a small pre school with a maximum of 15 children at any one time, this enables us to create very close, supportive relationships and truly get to know all children individually.
We accept children in receipt of the 2 Year Old Funding, 15 hours Universal Entitlement and also the 30 hours Extended Entitlement. Parents/Carers of children in receipt of funding will be asked to complete and sign a Provider Agreement declaring the number of hours claimed at settings your child attends.

Links with the Community
There is a partnership between All Saints Primary School and the pre-school. We have regular meetings to exchange information and ideas. We often take a walk in the village to enjoy nature or to visit the school. Children are taught road safety procedures and are strongly encouraged to wear reflective clothing.
Helping for the Day!
We enjoy and encourage the link between parent and pre-school. We welcome parent's help during pre-school sessions at any time. Most parents find this very rewarding allowing them to see their child within a different surrounding and to see how they are progressing. There is a parent helper policy which explains the role in more detail.
Although not compulsory, we do have uniform which you can purchase. £6 for a t-shirt £14.50 hoody. To view our uniform, please see: Cupine Embroidery Please place orders with Nic or Sarah or contact Jennie directly.
Things can get quite messy so we discourage children from wearing their best clothes! It is handy to keep a pair of wellies at the school but we do have lots of spares. All clothes must be clearly named.
Lunchboxes are kept cool in our fridge. We encourage the children to eat the most nutritious parts of their packed lunch first. We have a healthy eating policy that we hope parents will adhere to. We recognise that some of our children may have special dietary needs and we are careful that these are observed. Please note: Due to nut allergies we have a strict NO NUT policy.
Pre-school outings are taken whenever possible. They are a wonderful way for children to explore the big, wide world and experience new things. We go to places such as The Donkey Sanctuary, seaside, farms, and fire stations, etc.
