The next step is to bring your child into St Andrews Preschool for a visit. Contact Anne (Head Teacher) or Elspeth (Administrator) on 07 573 6903 to arrange a time. You are welcome to pop in at any time but by making an appointment we can ensure that we have a team member available to spend some quality time with you.

* Meet our Head-Teacher and friendly teaching team
* Introduce your child to our teachers.
* Help your child experience our centre environment in a relaxed way.
* Join in playing and learning activities with your child.
* Ask us any questions or discuss any concerns.



During your visit to St Andrews Preschool you will receive our Enrolment Pack. If you would like to proceed, someone from our team will make a time to fill out the forms with you and arrange start dates, fee payments and settling-in sessions.


We require children to have a minimum of two visits accompanied by a parent or guardian before they officially begin. This helps ease your child into their new environment and to have the safety of your presence while he or she begins to build secure relationships with our teachers. We provide up to three visits free of charge.
