As a registered provider under the government’s Early Years Funding Scheme we receive funding for eligible 3 and 4 year olds, which is organised by the pre-school. Funding is available, up to a maximum number of 15 hours per week, from the term after a child is three. Top up fees will be charged for any hours over this entitlement or if funding is used up at another Early Years setting.  There is also funding available for some 2 year old children whose families receive financial support.
From September 2017 fees will be charged at £4.50 per hour.  Parents are invoiced at the beginning of each half term when payment is due for the upcoming half term. Payment can be made by cheque, cash or childcare vouchers.  Sometimes we are open for more days in a term than funding covers and you will need to pay top up fees for these at the current hourly rate.
