Our morning sessions run from 9:15 to 12:15, Monday to Friday, term time only. We also offer a Lunch Club from 12:15 to 13:00 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Fees & Funding
- £19 per Session for 2-year-olds
- Free sessions for funded 3 and 4-year-olds + a voluntary fee for snacks
- £5 for our Lunch Club
Our fees are currently £19 per session, payable in advance at the beginning of each term. Two-year-old children normally start on 2 sessions a week (the minimum) and subsequently increase the number of days. Lunch Club is currently £5 per session if booked in advance and £6 if paid on the day.
If you are unable to pay the full fee in advance, we will accept half-termly payments, beginning at the start of each half-term. No discounts or refunds are available for holiday or sickness absence, special events that replace the normal session (usually held on a Friday), or closure due to severe weather conditions. Please also be aware that sessions are not transferable - an absent child cannot give their session to another child or swap it for another day.
Free Early Education
Children become eligible for free sessions in the term following their 3rd birthday. More precisely, they must be 3 before the 1st of the first month of term: - to qualify for the Spring term they must be 3 before the 1st of January, for the Summer term before the 1st of April, and for the Autumn term before the 1st of September.
So we do need to see your child’s birth certificate. Without this, or similar evidence, we cannot claim your funding. With it, all we will need is your occasional signature on a Parent Declaration Form.
Please also note that, to cover the cost of the morning snack and other consumables, we ask funded parents for a voluntary contribution of £1.50 per session.
Although we are only open for 15 hours per week, parents can still claim 30 hours funding by sharing it with a childminder or another setting. As it's all rather complicated, please see the Childcare Choices website for more details.
Childcare Vouchers / TFC
Childcare Vouchers are now closed to new entrants - they have been superseded by Tax-Free Childcare. To pay your fees using this method, you will need to sign up for a Tax-Free Childcare account, as described on the Childcare Choices website.
