Just wondering if anyone knows what the rules are and who I need to approach about it in the first place (ie, school, council, pta?).

All I know at the moment is that there isn't one at the school but am going to go and do a bit of investigating online to try and find out more!

I would approach the head teacher or the govenors

The regulations for running them will be from Surestart/OFSTED have a look at their websites

Insurance can be Morton Michel or Pre-school earning alliance (I think)

There maybe grants available - you need to contact your Extended Schools officer at the council

It isn't that hard to set up - but sustainability and staffing will be your biggest worries
