sessions and costs

Children are required to attend at least two sessions per week (a minimum of six hours). Our sessions last between three and five hours; the later collection times given below include Lunch Club (children need to bring their own packed lunch and drink).

Our term dates run alongside Hampshire County Council term dates.

Opening times from 7 September 2020

Our standard opening times are as follows:

Monday to Friday

Drop off: 9.15am

Pick-up: 12.15pm or 2.15pm (before or after lunch club)

All current children attend based on these timings. Doing so allows them to really become part of the St Paul’s family and fully benefit from our pre-school structures and routines. 

However, in order to meet the 2020/21 Early Year’s funding criteria, we are able to offer a limited number of additional drop-off and pick-up times, as follows:

Drop-off: 9.45am*, 11.45am*

Pick-up: 11.45am*

* Spaces are limited for these additional times. Please contact the Pre-school Administrator for more information.


Our hourly rate is £6.25 per hour. Lunch Club is charged at the same rate.

Local Education Authority (LEA) funding is available for three- and four-year olds; details are available from the Pre-school Administrator.

Healthy snacks and drinks of milk and water are provided during the sessions, for a suggested voluntary contribution. 

If you would like to visit St Paul’s, please contact the Pre-school administrator to arrange a suitable time.
