Welcome to the Kilnsea Pre-School Website

Kilnsea Pre-School was established in 1987 and we are located in the Community Centre at Maiden Place.

We have the use of a large, air conditioned hall, with children’s toilets, kitchen and office space; the building is accessible for wheelchair users and has a disabled toilet.  The Pre-School also has the use of an enclosed grassed outside area with a large paved patio with covered sand pit.

We have a maximum of 33 children in Pre-School with a staff to child ratio of 1:6 (1:4 for 2 year olds). We also invite one parent/ carer volunteer helper to each session. All our staff and committee hold Enhanced Disclosures issued by the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS).

We are a community run Pre-School with charity status, governed by the Pre-School Learning Alliance constitution. We are managed by a committee whose members comprise of parents/ carers.

Children are eligible to start Kilnsea Pre-School from the age of 2 . You can register your child on the waiting list from the age of 18 months. There is a non-returnable administration fee of £20 to pay when registering. Our current fees are charged at £7 per hour for unfunded 2 & 3 year olds and 2 year funded children going over their 15 hours.  £6.75 will be charged for funded 3 & 4 year old children going over their funded hours.
