"Langtoft Pre-School, where learning and fun are wrapped up in one".
Admissions Criteria​


It is our intention to make our Pre-school genuinely accessible to children and families from all sections of the local community. Children commence on a minimum of 2 sessions per week over a period of 2 days. Our waiting list is arranged in order of date of birth, with preference given to those children eligible for Early Years Funding, Two Year Old Funding or starting school the following September. We take children from the age of 2 years. Contact the Pre-School on  01778 348189/07926 355187 or email for further information. Parents may put their child’s name down at birth, however we are unable to guarantee places as our intake is based on age and being on our admission list does not give priority over older children, only those of the same age. A registration fee of £30 is payable when an offer of a place has been made which will secure your child’s place. If your child will only be accessing their Early Years Entitlement however, parents will be asked to make a voluntary payment of £30 towards the cost of registration.

Entitlement for Two Year Olds

​Langtoft Pre-School is able to take children who qualify for 2 year old funding. This provides up to 15 hours of free childcare for parents who are entitled to certain benefits and it can be accessed as soon as your child starts Pre-School. Please contact us if you would like further details regarding the criteria and the application process or visit

30 Hours Free Childcare

​Langtoft Pre-School can offer 30 hours free childcare to those three and four year old children who are eligible. Parents can check their eligibility online at and, if eligible, submit an online application. Once approved, parents will receive an eligibility code that will need to be submitted to Pre-School for validation. Parents should be aware that the entitlement begins from the term after the code is received and should speak to the manager regarding sessions if they intend to access these hours.


​For those that are not eligible for the above, the fees are payable monthly in advance and from January 2020 will be £5.75 per hour. There is usually an increase in fees in September each year. Fees continue to be payable even if a child is absent. In cases of prolonged absence, parents should consult the manager about payment. Each child’s attendance at the group is conditional upon continued payment of any fees due. Our current fee structure is shown below:

  • Standard hourly rate£5.75 per hour

  • Full day rate (6 hours)£34.50

  • Morning session rate (3 hours)£17.25
