Fees and Funding
The fees are £25 per session for 3 or 4 year olds for a 3 hour session and payments are required in advance. Payment methods can be arranged. Fees must still be paid if children are absent. The Nursery should be informed as soon as possible if your child is unable to attend and you should inform us when your child will be returning. If your child has to be absent over a long period of time, talk to the Nursery Manager.
Will I receive funding for my child’s fees when they are 3 Years Old?
Because the Nursery is inspected by Ofsted, we receive funding for all eligible 3 and 4-year olds. When your child is coming up to the term after they are 3 you will be given a ‘Funding Form’ to fill in so the Pre-school can claim funding for your child which is paid directly to us. Along with legislation that comes with the funding we would need to see a copy of your child’s original birth certificate. Any problems, then please see a member of the management staff, who will be happy to help you.
How many sessions does this funding pay for?
Currently, you can claim for eligible 3 and 4 year old children for fifteen hours per week for 38 weeks of the year. These sessions do not have to be taken at one Child-minder, Nursery or Pre-school provider, but you will have to fill in a ‘Funding Form’ at each setting your child attends and you can only claim for up to 15 hours a week in all. When you fill in a ‘Funding Form’ all this information will be given to you by a member of staff. Please see a member of staff to explain about the eligibility for two year old funding, 30 hour funding or Early Years Pupil Premium Funding.
How do I know if I am eligible for funding support?
Part time 3-year-old places are free to all families and are funded by Nursery Education Funding. We also offer 30 hours of free day care for eligible families. This criteria can be found in our Admissions Policy or on the Childcare Choices website.
Families who are not eligible for 30 hour funding can still request a full-time space for their child, which is payable at £25 per day.
