Butterfield Pre School is open 47 weeks of the year. We will be closed on all public bank holidays, 2 weeks at Christmas and 3 weeks during the summer school holidays.

Please do not bring your child before the session starts – 7.30 for Early Birds, 9.00 for morning session etc. If you do need to bring them early for a particular reason, let us know beforehand. We will do our best to help. This allows us to adhere to our correct staffing ratios. Please allow your child to stay until the end of the session if possible; otherwise they may be missing out on a particular activity. Please try not to be late collecting your child, as they often get upset. Children will receive a light snack at 10am / 2pm and 4.15pm this will consist of a savoury selection and a choice of fruit.

FOR YOUR CHILD PROTECTION – ALWAYS tell us if you will not be collecting your child yourself, and who it will be. This should be someone named on the registration form that staff have been introduced to.

New Starters

Your child will be invited to visit our group along with parent/carer before they start
We would like parent/carers to stay with their child until they are both happy about the separation.

Parents are welcome to stay with their child for as long as is necessary. Time spent together now will make your child feel secure, and pay dividends later.


Fees must be paid fortnightly or monthly in advance, for the sessions booked, with no credits for absence. Our preferred method of payment would be a monthly in advance direct bank payment to:

a/c 31094076    s/c 40-47-51

HSBC account name Butterfield Pre School Group

As we realise this is the easiest way to pay your fees we will offer an incentive saving of £10.00 per quarter which equates to £2.50 per month. However for those of you who prefer the fortnightly in advance bills we will be able to issue these.

We expect all bills to be paid in the first week of issue.

We do have to impose a penalty for late payments this is as follows:

If the bill is not paid in within the first week of issue there will be an extra charge of £1.00.
If the bill is not paid in the second week and the balance rolls over there will be an extra charge of £5.00 for each subsequent week it is unpaid.

We accept payment via cash and cheques (made payable to Butterfield Pre School).
And don't forget, a large percentage of your childcare costs could be ofset by your working tax credit. We also accept Childcare Vouchers which could save you even more. Please ask us for further details.
We accept the following child care vouchers

Busy bees / Computer share     Eden red
Fair care Sodexho pass
Say care pass    


If your child is ill, please keep them at home. You are the one they need to give them comfort and love. If they are unwell or have an accident at Pre School, we will take care of them until we can contact you (or someone nominated on their registration card). If your child will be absent for a prolonged period, please let us know.

It is important that we have up to date contact telephone numbers, both for home and work.

Admissions Policy

Places are open to all children from 2 years old to 11 years old. If we have children on the waiting list, they will be allocated places according to their date of birth, or need, rather than ‘first come first served’ basis. We would always try to find a place for a child whose need was urgent.
