Our Aims

  • Enhance the development and education of every child under statutory school age within our Setting.
  • Provide a safe, secure and stimulating environment.
  • Work within a framework, which ensures equality of opportunity for all our children and families.


First and foremost, we are a pre-school and not a school. It is our belief that the Early Learning Goals as set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage are best achieved through informal & structured play with a high ratio of adults to children (1:6 in our sessions for 3 years plus & 1:4 for our younger children) combined with significant involvement of parents/carers.

Ferring Funtime has a clear set of policies (available in the Family Folder at Fledglings Lodge) covering the full range of issues affecting pre-school, which staff are always happy to discuss.

Parents/carers are free to visit the pre-school at any time during session hours, or to meet with a member of staff at an appointed time.

The constitution under which we are currently working is on display on the Committee Notice Board at Fledglings Lodge.
