Pre-School

Kinderley School accepts children into pre school from the age of 2 years old. We have a separate building on the school grounds where our children thrive in their learning and development through play and the support of our qualified, caring staff.

All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours a week of free early learning from the term following their third birthday. Some 2 year olds are also eligible for 15 hours a week of free early learning. Subject to available places we offer fee paying places for 2 year olds not eligible for a free place. 30 hour funded places are also available for eligible 3-4 year olds. We can accommodate up to twelve children each morning and afternoon session.


Comments from current parents include:


“Kinderley is a great school. Our daughter started in the Nursery year and now is in the Pre-School year and she absolutely adores going and has a fantastic relationship with all the staff who are so friendly and always encourage her to try new things. We have seen her truly thrive, not just her learning, but her personality and confidence too. Staff have always been on hand to give support and advice when needed and always willing to give feedback about our daughter’s session.”


“Our son has been so looking forward to coming back to school and was telling me all about his day. We feel so lucky to have such a wonderful school that makes him want to be there and inspires him to learn”


We have grown from strength to strength since opening 4 years ago to the point that we are full to capacity this year. So, if you are interested in your child joining us for September 2021 or in the future, please contact us to avoid disappointment. We will add names to our waiting list from age 18 months.


Please contact us on: 01945 870374 or office@kinderely.cambs.sch.uk for more information.

If you wish to apply to our pre school which offers provision for children who are not yet of statutory age, you must complete the Council’s Parent/Carer declaration form which is available by clicking here, or requesting a form from the school office, or the Early Years Funding team.


Our Pre School Environment has had a make-over!


Things to do with your under 5s:

50 Things To Do Before You’re Five gives you 50 activities that parents and carers can support their children to try out and repeat. Each of the 50 Things have been carefully developed by education experts and early years practitioners following consultation with parents, and we’ve made sure that children with special education needs are included and that each of the 50 Things means something across our culturally diverse communities.
