When can my child start

Located at Piddle Valley CE First School, Piddletrenthide near Dorchester, Feathers Preschool is open from 9am - 3pm, offering morning, afternoon and full day sessions to include an extra hour for lunch if needed, designed to meet your child’s requirements.


Our starting age is from 2 years 9 months, and from the beginning of the term after your child turns 3 you can take advantage of 15 government funded hours.  We also accommodate those who are eligible for 30 hour funding, and you can also use these extra hours in our breakfast and after school clubs.  It is important to us to provide care and learning in harmony with child-minders and all other schools in the area, working together with parents to ensure your child's individual needs are met.
