Waiting List / Admissions

If you would like your little one be added to the waiting list to join Ladybird Forest Pre-School, please email or call the setting on 01525 406703.

Our waiting list is arranged by the children’s date of birth. In accordance with our Admissions Policy and our funding agreement with Central Bedfordshire Council, priority is given to funded 3 and 4 year olds, followed by funded 2-year olds, followed by all other 2 year olds. We accept children from the term after their 2nd birthday.

If you have any questions regarding fees, funding, sessions or wrap around care, please contact

Our minimum requirement is for children to attend 2 sessions per week, which can be half-days or a full day. During one of those sessions your child will attend a Forest School session.

Every session also includes circle time, in which children do phonics and wellbeing.

We offer parents/carers up to a maximum of 10 sessions per week and we accept the full 30 hours of NEF funding (15 hours ‘universal’ funding and 15 hours ‘extended’ funding). Funding can be used against the morning and afternoon sessions, and Lunch Clubs.
