Information for Parents

In general we follow the school term times as published on the Essex Schools web site, see here for details.


The main difference between our dates and the school dates are that we only operate a 38 week year, and schools are funded for 39, plus they have teacher training days that they can take. As a result we do sometimes start later or finish a week earlier.

Our first day back will be Monday 10th September. If your child is starting with us we will be holding an Open Day on Friday 7th September from 9-1, you will have  receive an invitation to a timed slot to chat to your child's key person for the Open Day, please call if you are unsure of your time. 

Our uniform has been very popular the burgundy t-shirts can be purchased for £5, sweatshirts for £8 and fleeces for £12.50, all have the Richmond pre-school logo on. This takes away the problem of what clothes to send your child into pre-school in, but please remember to label them as they are all the same! We recommend children wear dark coloured leggings or joggers on the bottom.

Please ensure all your children's clothing is labelled, especially the sweatshirts and fleeces.
