Pre-School entry (3+)

Children join our Pre-School from the age of 3 years and turn age 4 during their academic year in Pre-School (September - August).

Our 3+ Assessment for entry in our Pre-School in September 2018 is on Friday 23rd February 2018.

There will be up to 40 places available. 

If you would like your child to attend the 3+ Assesment you must register with Edge Grove by Friday 16th February 2018.

At our 3+ Assessment we invite children to participate in a number of age-appropriate activities in small groups, split by age. During the 30-minutes session the children are observed by our teaching staff and offers of places are made on the basis of this assessment. 

Applying for Pre-School:

Stage 1
Contact Mrs Morrison, Marketing and Admissions Manager, for an initial conversation and to add your child's details to our list for Pre-School entry. If you require one, she will send you a prospectus or you can request a prospectus online.

Step 2
Arrange to visit Edge Grove to tour the school. You can visit at our Open Mornings or alternatively we offer small group tours of the Pre Prep and Pre-School every Wednesday morning from 9.30am, led by Mrs Gill Emmerson, Head of Pre Prep. These tours must be pre-booked with Admissions so please contact Mrs Morrison if you would like to book a small group Wednesday morning tour, by emailing or calling 01923 855724. 

Step 3
Following your visit, you will need to register your child for a place at Edge Grove. You can download the registration form here and post it or email it to Admissions. The non-refundable £100 registration fee can be paid via cheque or bank transfer and the details are on the registration form. 

Step 4
You'll be invited to attend the 3+ Assessment for your child's year group and beforehand we will also contact your child's current Nursery (if applicable) for their confidential feedback. 

Step 5
Following the assessment, if your child is offered a place you will be asked to accept it within two weeks by paying the non-returnable £1,000 deposit to secure the place. Your child may be added to a waiting list and you will be notified if/when a space becomes available.
