Pre-School Hours and Fees
All our sessions run in accordance with the term dates for Haselbury Plucknett First School. We close for the school holidays and INSET / training days. Our session times are:-

We run an optional Lunch Club from 12-1pm every day, where the children bring a packed lunch from home.
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. Each child is eligible for 15 hours of free pre-school per week from the term after the child is three. Some families may also be entitled to an additional 15 hours per week. Please refer to the Childcare Choices website or speak to the pre-school supervisor for eligibility. 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 15 hours funding per week during term time available for eligible 2 year old children whose families receive financial support.
Fees are 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, BACS payment or childcare vouchers.
