Here are some of Weaverham PreSchool’s most frequently asked questions. If you have a question that you have been unable to find the answer to please use the Contact Us page.
Our opening times are 8.30am – 3pm. However, we can offer extended hours. Please speak to Helen, our manager.
We offer opportunities for each child and their parents to visit preschool together, meet the staff and play in the room and explore the outdoor areas too. Each child is allocated a Key Worker who will spend time getting to know you both. We tailor settling in plans for individual children and we will always work closely with you.
We offer 2 year old funded places. This funding provides 15 hours per week. There are a number of reasons that you may qualify for this. Helen our manager can advise and support the process.
The childcare grant is available for all children from the term after their third birthday. All parents can claim up to 15 hours per week, term time only. Some families may be eligible for 30 hours funding a week. These are known as additional 15 hours. As we are a provider registered with Cheshire West and Chester Council and OFSTED we are able to claim these hours on your behalf and will provide you with all the information and forms required.
We use Tapestry which is a secure online learning journal where staff share photographs, videos and diary entries. This builds a very special record of your child’s activities, experiences and development and provides lovely memories to keep for ever.
Parents can also upload pictures and videos and this communication between staff and parents helps build a shared understanding of how every child can reach their full potential.
In addition to this there is of course the day to day contact at drop of and pick up time.
