The term after your child turns 3 you are entitled to 15 hours of free childcare per week, you are welcome to take additional sessions for your child.  Additional sessions will be charged at the normal sessional rate. We do not ask for top ups or voluntary donations.

 

30 Hour funding

We are able to offer a limited number of 30 hour funded places. Please call to discuss.

 

Invoicing

We invoice termly, however this can be paid in two instalments each instalment must be paid 7 days before the start of each half term. We would appreciate payments being made before the start of the new half term to avoid late payment fees. Any additional sessions can be paid by cash or cheque in advance.

 

Registration and Waiting list

To register your child with our setting or to place them on our waiting list an application form must be completed and returned with a registration fee of £35. This is a non-refundable fee.  Once a place comes available and we are able to offer your child a place you will have 14 days to make a refundable deposit of £200 to reserve your child’s place in our preschool.  This will be deducted from your invoice on the last month before your child leaves the preschool.  This deposit is not refundable if you decide that you no longer want the space prior to starting.  There is no reduction in fees for absence due to holidays or sickness.

We are registered on many different childcare voucher schemes.  Let us know which scheme and we will forward you the details.
