To gain a place on the Pre-School waiting list, a non-refundable registration fee of £5 per child is charged (unless your child is already eligible for a funded place and is starting immediately). Ideally, please pay by bank transfer, sort code: 30-90-38, account number: 02817953 using your child’s name as reference.

Places are offered to children from the age of two according to the Pre-School Admissions Policy, subject to availability. We will notify you when a place becomes available.


Below are the sessions we currently offer at Pollyanna for the Autumn Term 2023 and Spring and Summer Terms 2024. We ask that all children attend for a minimum of 2 sessions or one day per week. Please indicate below your required sessions.


Under the current funding entitlement, some 2-year-olds and all 3 to 4 year old children are eligible for up to 15 hours of free (Universal) funding per week from the term following their 2nd/3rd birthday. In addition, working parents of 3 and 4 year old children may be entitled to an additional 15 hours of free (Extended) funded childcare per week. For more information and to check your eligibility, please visit

Pollyanna offer a maximum of 28.75 funded hours per week. We endeavour to offer as many places as we can, however, places may be limited. You are also able to split the entitlement over 2 providers. Hours above the funding entitlement/non-funded hours will be charged at our hourly rate of £5.60 per hour. In accordance with our Fees Policy, unpaid fees will result in your child being unable to attend their additional sessions.
