Congresbury Community Pre-school

The Preschool was rated GOOD at our inspection in July 2017. We run two provisions in the grounds of St Andrew's C of E Primary School.

2 year old spaces

The portacabin (opposite the children's centre) provides a fabulous learning environment for our 2/3 year olds. We offer non-funded and funded sessions and are open Mon to Fri from 9am - 12pm and 12 - 3pm.

Children who do the morning session have the option of bringing a packed lunch or having a hot dinner and staying until 12.30.   This extra half hour is priced at £2.50. Alternatively, they can have a hot lunch for £3.50.

Non-funded/additional sessions are available, suject to availability and staffing. 

3 year old spaces

Our new Early Years provision in the school hall offers a fantastic spacious playroom for our 3-4 year old 'preschool' children. The hall is adjacent to St Andrew's primary school entrance.              

Funded session times in the hall are Mon- Fri mornings 9am -12pm and afternoons 12.00-3.00. We offer the universal 15 hours funding to all 3 year olds and if eligible an additional 15 hours free extended funding (making 30 in total).

Children have the option of having a hot school meal (£3.50). Alternatively they can bring a packed lunch at no extra cost.

Non-funded/additional sessions are available, subject to availability and staffing at a cost of £17.


We run wraparound care for all users of the preschool and St Andrews school. Hours are 7.30am until 6pm. Regular user charges are £6 for 7.30am drop off, £4 for 8am drop off, £5 for 4.30pm pick up and £10 for 6pm pick up.
