Harcourt Pre-School aims to be a fully inclusive setting and aims to remove all reasonable barriers for children to attend the setting. Children will be offered a place regardless of their gender, culture, language, religion, physical or learning ability, parents’ ability to pay or home location.
Harcourt Pre-School operates a waiting list system and children are allocated places in waiting list order.
Parents are contacted in March/April to discuss places for the main September start. However, if a place becomes available, we will continue to contact parents throughout the year to offer a mid-term start.
Our usual intake is around 40 children; this includes approximately 25 three year olds and 15 two year olds.
We accept children from the age of two years old. Approximately five spaces a day are reserved for two year olds.
We offer flexibility in terms of the days and sessions a child attends, subject to availability.
Minimum number of sessions (a ‘session’ is half a day): children who are three years old on 1 Sept are required to attend for at least three sessions; children who are two on 1 Sept are required to attend for at least two sessions.
