Broadlands Sessions

The sessions at Broadlands are split by age into the following groups:

  • Rising Threes
  • Pre-Schoolers


Rising Threes

Rising 3 sessions take place on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 12.30pm until 3.30pm.  Children can join Rising 3 the term following their 2nd birthday. During our Rising 3 session, children are encouraged to develop their social skills and self-awareness through interaction with their peers and the adults who care for them. The session is a mixture of child-led play as well as structured activities with set learning goals.  

In addition, older Rising 3 children are able attend the Friday session alongside our preschoolers, either from 9-12 or 9-2:30pm.

 Session cost £12.75 (3 hours) 


Broadlands offers 5 pre-school sessions: Monday and Wednesday from 9.00 am until 3.30pm, Tuesday and Thursday from 9.00 am until 12.00pm and Friday from 9.00 am until 2.30pm.  The longer sessions include a packed lunch. Children move to Pre-school for the academic year in which they turn 4. Our pre-school sessions reflect the developing social, physical and academic needs of individual children. During the pre-school year, we aim to expand the confidence, independence and interest in learning which will facilitate an easy transition to school.

Session cost: Children are eligible for up to 30 hours funding per week.  Any additional hours are charged at £4.25  per hour.
