Before your child starts Kindergarten, you will be required to fill in an admission form. (Help will be given to fill it in, if required.) We enrol children when they reach 2-years of age. There is a waiting list and children are given priority based on the following:

1) Date of Birth.
2) Siblings.

We keep a place vacant, if this is financially viable, to accommodate emergency admissions. We will
try to be flexible about attendance patterns, so as to accommodate the needs of individual children
and families.


Your child is entitled for Government funding from the term after they are 3 years old. All parents will be given a Parent Provider Claim form at the beginning of each term, this is issued by Essex County Council from the Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership.

If your child attends another setting their funding can be split.

2 year old funding is available to those families that meet the set criteria please ask for details.
