Session Times

Fortrose Pre-School offers sessions from Monday to Friday.


Morning Sessions:          9.00am – 12.00pm

Afternoon Sessions:      12.00pm – 3.00pm


Your child is entitled to 600 hours of government-funded childcare per year.  This equates to 16 hours per week or 5 sessions


Since November 2016, children are now able to attend a morning and afternoon session on the same day.  Children attending for a full day will have their lunch during the session changeover with parents providing their own child(ren) with a healthy packed lunch. 


We are currently offering families the opportunity for children to attend up to 5 additional sessions per week.  This would allow a child to attend the pre-school for a maximum of 8 sessions per week.


Anything above the 16 hours of government-funded childcare (including lunchtime crossover periods and additional sessions) will be charged at £3.45 per hour.  Please be aware that

  • additional sessions will be invoiced monthly or termly, depending on the amounts to be invoiced
  • all booked sessions must be paid for.


In line with the Pre-School’s Admissions Policy and Highland Council guidelines, priority will always be given to children accessing their 5 government funded sessions.  We will do our best to meet your needs for additional sessions but cannot guarantee everyone will get their preferred choices.
