We are authorised for children 2yrs to rising 5’s. Early years funding is currently available from the term after your child’s 3rd birthday for either 15 hrs per week (570 hrs per year) or 30 hrs per week (1,140 hrs per year). We also accept 2yr funding.

Cost and times
We are extremely flexible with our start and finish times and parents can book times to suit, rather than having to book sessions. We also tailor our opening and closing times to suit the cohort of families we have each year and we have extremely competitive hourly rates. We also do not charge extra costs for the service we provide and as our times vary they are available on request.

Food In Pre-School/Allergens Guidelines:
We ask parents to provide snack to be shared during the session, consisting of a variety of fruit, breadsticks, plain biscuits, bread, cereal etc. Any foods/drinks shared within Pre-School for snack/birthdays/celebrations etc. must be in original unopened packaging. Due to the regulations which came into effect in December 2014 from the Food Standards Agency.

Parents must inform us of any allergies/intolerances their child or immediate family may have.

Lymington Centre Pre-School.

My son settled in very quickly after starting here when his previous pre-school closed. The staff worked with me to ensure inclusion in all activities taking into account food allergies and skin conditions. Staff were approachable and friendly, and my son loves attending here.


Brilliant Pre-School would highly recommend my oldest grandson went and now my youngest grandson has just started made to feel very welcome . Keep up the good work x


All the staff at the pre-school are incredibly warm, friendly and engaging. My son particularly enjoys the themed activities and the ‘People Who Help Us’ visits.
