Sessions & Prices

Preschool is open on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9.15am until 12:15pm. Preschool is only open during term-time (Solihull LEA) and may close in accordance with the local primary school inset days to enable staff training and development. 24 places are available, with ratios of one adult to four children (under 3) and one adult to eight children (over 3).

From January 2023, fees are £20 per 3 hour session and are reviewed annually. There is a non-refundable £30 registration fee payable upon registration.  The registration fee includes a Preschool t-shirt which you will receive on your child’s first day.  We also request a voluntary contribution of £1 per week towards snack time, this is added onto your invoice.  You will receive an invoice in advance of each half-term, which is payable within 7 days.  Unfortunately, due to staffing requirements, fees remain payable in the case of a child’s absence including illness and holidays.


Funding is available for 3 year olds (from the term after they turn 3) and we offer free places for 2 year olds who are eligible – please ask for more information. Funding is also available via and at the discretion of the Fentham Trust.
