Enrolling at our pre-school
Children may start at Maiden Erlegh Preschool from age 2 years 6 months. Registrations forms can be downloaded from our Forms & Documents section. Please complete and return the form when your child is at least 18 months old in order for their name to be placed on our waiting list. We primarily serve the Earley/Reading area of Berkshire but also welcome children from further afield.
From the start of the term following their child’s 3rd birthday, parents are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare per week, which is funded by local borough councils. These hours may be taken in any combination, subject to availability. Hours taken over and above the free entitlement are payable.
For families where both parents work for a minimum of 16h per week and both earn under £100,000 per year, children may be entitled to 30h funding per week, during term time.
