Children may start at Maiden Erlegh Preschool from age 2 years 6 months. Please contact the pre-school for a registration form and return it when your child is at least 18 months old in order for their name to be placed on our childcare 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.
During a typical session the children will have the opportunity to participate in the following activities:
Each week children are given the opportunity to borrow a book from the Pre-school to take home and share with their family. Each child has their own library folder and is encouraged to participate in this activity.
