Harbour Bear Admissions 2020

If your child is starting pre-school or primary school in September 2020, you can apply online between Tuesday 7 January 2020 and 12.00 noon on Thursday 30 January 2020.

Harbour Bears Pre-School can facilitate both funded and fee paying pre-school children and fee paying playgroup children. If your child has been allocated a funded pre-school placement the daily fees will be met by the Department of Education but, as per your letter of offer, you are requested to pay £15.00 per child per month to assist with the provision of healthy snacks. (This payment is also due during absence). Please bring this money, in the envelope provided with your monthly newsletter, on the first day of each month or on the next day that your child attends. Envelopes should be placed in the box in the Hallway and the sheet signed accordingly.
Please note: The attendance of all children in receipt of a funded place is monitored on a monthly basis by the Education Authority; therefore casual absences should be avoided.
