Friary Preschool is affiliated to the Catholic Parish of Crawley. As such, we support and promote
the ethos of the Catholic Church.
In the day-to-day life of the Preschool, we celebrate the principal Christian feast days and
encourage the children to pray in a manner appropriate to their age. We also participate in liturgies and other community celebrations in the adjoining Primary School of St Francis of Assisi.
WELCOME TO FRIARY PRESCHOOL
EVERY CHILD WELCOME
We opened our brand new, purpose built setting in September 2016, enabling us to offer spaces for more children.
Please see photos of our fantastic new building on our Gallery page.
We welcome any enquiries for spaces from Catholic and non Catholic families.
We accept children from 2 and a half years of age, with or without the 15 free hours of Universal Government funding.
For this we do have limited spaces available. All 3 and 4 year olds are eligible the term after they become 3 years of age.
We accept the new 30 hours extended funding for 3-4 year olds. Spaces will be prioritised to children who will have turned 3 beforethe start of September. We will try to accommodate as many other applications for intake during the school year, as places become available.
Fees are still due if a child is absent. Notice must be given before moving a child to a new setting, the fee is still due during the interim period.
