Thurrock Adult Community College

Pre-school childcare

We have pre-school facilities for children of ages 2 to 5 years. Rated 'Good' by Ofsted, activities are carefully planned to provide learning through play, education and care. The pre-school is a bright, warm environment with a fully-equipped outdoor play area where the developmental and social needs of children are met.

The pre-school opens from Monday to Friday, 9am to 3:30pm. You can book a place for your child or children whilst attending courses at the Grays Adult Education Centre. Contact us to check availability as pre-booking is essential.

You can visit the pre-school during term time and speak to our childcare supervisor, then complete a registration form and pay the £15 registration fee to register your child.

Our fees

Pre-school fees for 2018/19 are:

  • registration – £15 per child
  • 2 to 3 year-olds – £17.25 per 3 hour session
  • 3 to 5 year-olds – £15.80 per 3 hour session
  • lunch session – £3 per session, child must bring their own lunch

For example, if you enrol onto a 30-week course, 2 hours per week, and have a 3 year-old child, the fees would be:

  • 30 sessions at £15.80 per session = £474
  • registration fee = £15
  • total crèche fee = £474 + £15 = £489
