Wellow Primary School


Sessions and Fees

Wellow Preschool is open to all children from their 2nd birthday and we recommend that children should attend a minimum of two sessions a week to aid settling and to maintain continuity.

We aim to be as flexible as possible, providing a range of sessions which offer half days, a 'school day' (with time to drop off and collect siblings) as well as a longer day for working parents. 

Additional hours may only be taken at the start or end of a session, and if not funded they will be charged at £7 per hour or part thereof.

 2 Year Olds

Ratios for 2 year old children are much higher to staff - they operate on a 1:4 basis and therefore their costs are higher.  

 Some children may qualify for 2 year old funded places.  This means that the government will pay for your 2 year old to receive some early Years Education for free.  There are strict eligibly criteria you must meet in order to qualify for the funding and we can help you with this, but as a guide, it is targeted to those families who have an income under £16,190 per year and who receive certain benefits.  It is also available for children who are, or have been living in care, adopted from care or those receiving disability living allowance.  Further details can be found at: https://www.hants.gov.uk/socialcareandhealth/childrenandfamilies/childcare/payingforchildcare/freechildcare/2yearoldoffer


3 Year Olds
From the beginning of the school term following your child's 3rd birthday, they are entitled to 15 hours of free Early Years Education (EYE) funding, during school term time. Working parents may be eligible to apply for 30 hours EYE funding.
