Our pre-school is located within the grounds of Modbury Primary School. We cater for two to five year olds and are open five days a week, enabling your child to receive full day care or to attend for various sessions through the week. From now on all eligible working parents of 3 and 4 year old children will be entitled to extended entitlement funding. Please check eligibility at https://childcare-support.tax.service.gov.uk/

About Modbury Pre-School

Modbury is a small town in the beautiful countryside of the South Hams in Devon. Our pre-school benefits from being part of this friendly and active community. Throughout the year we are involved in community events and we have links with local play groups and businesses.

We are closely linked to Modbury Primary School. Our location makes it easy for us to share experience and gives our children a great opportunity to see and mix with pupils at the school. We are often invited to join in with key events in the school calendar and, once a week, our children join in with the school reception class.

To provide an introduction to Modbury Pre-School, we hold stay and play session on Thursday afternoons from 1:00p.m. to 3:30p.m. (pre-booking is essential as numbers are limited).

Modbury pre-school child care funding options – See Times & Fees page for more information.

We are a registered provider of the extended entitlement of 30 hrs free childcare for eligible working parents of 3 and 4 year olds.  The deadline has passed for the Autumn term 2017. If your child becomes eligible next term you can register now to be contacted by the HMRC when it becomes available to you: at https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/. You can apply at https://childcare-support.tax.service.gov.uk/par/app/applynow  .  If you are eligible you will be given an 11 digit code which we will need to process your application.  If you are not entitled to extended entitlement you will still receive the universal entitlement which is 570 hours funding per year: 15hrs per week, 38 weeks a year (term time only). We will also be excepting the 2gether funding for eligible 2 year olds.
