Minimum starting age

The group is registered with OFSTED to take children from 2½ years.

Under our registration, we can only offer a maximum of two sessions per week for the age range 2½-3 years. If you wish to increase the sessions after your child's 3rd birthday, please make enquiries with the Admissions Co-ordinator who will advise you on availability.


With effect from 1st January 2018, fees will be increased by 5% to £5.00 per hour, at preseent our fees are £4.75 per hour and have been since 1st September 2016. Fees are invoiced per half term in advance and should be paid within 10 working days of date of invoice. Children are funded by the Local Education Authority for up to 15 hours per week from the term following their 3rd birthday. This funding is paid for all 38 weeks that The Donkey Field Pre-School is open in the year.

Progression to school

During the child’s time with us we will do everything appropriate to prepare them for "big" school; this includes visits to the school during their last term. Please be aware it is not compulsory to progress to the village school in order to be accepted to Donkey Field, nor does attendance at Donkey Field automatically entitle your child to a place at Crawley Down Village C of E School.
