Latest Pre-School News

Preschool is now on their Christmas Break. We will return on Tuesday 7th January and would like to take this opportunity to wish all of our children and their families, a very Merry Christmas.

Applications for primary school places close on 15 Jan
If your child is due to start primary school in Devon in September 2020, the application process will close on 15 January 2020. This doesn’t include children in Plymouth or Torbay, so parents of children in those areas need to apply directly to their local education authority.

It’s easy to apply online or you can fill in a hard copy of the application form, which can be requested by calling our Education Helpline on 0345 155 1019.

Don’t miss the deadline for free childcare!
If you want 30 hours free childcare for your three or four year old in January 2020, you need to apply for your code before the Christmas holidays or it could be too late. Don’t miss out!
