Children join our Pre-School in the September that they have turned age 3.

Entry in Pre-School for September 2019:

Our 3+ Assessment is on Friday 15th March 2019. The deadline for registering is Monday 4th March 2019.

There are 40 spaces to fill in our Pre-School for each academic year – the biggest intake of children into one year group at Edge Grove. Click here for more information about Edge Grove Pre-School.

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.


How can I apply for a place in 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 admissions@edgegrove.com 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 £2,000 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.
