The fees are £13.80 per session for non-funded children. However children over three years old are eligible to receive government funding and will therefore have the majority of their sessions free (a small top-up fee may be needed to be charged to cover any non-funded sessions). Funding is available for some 2 year olds provided you meet certain criteria set out by the Education Department. You can check to see if you meet this criteria here.
Children over three years old are eligible to receive Universal government funding and will therefore have up to 5 funded sessions. Funding is available for some 2-year olds provided you meet certain criteria set out by the Education Department.
When your child is eligible for universal funding, we will give you the necessary forms to complete and ask for evidence of your child’s date of birth. We will do the rest for you.
Extended entitlement funding (30 hours) for working parents is offered subject to availability and evidence of eligibility should be provided to Pre-School Leader by the dates set out in the government guidelines. To check if you are eligible for the Extended entitlement go to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
Payment of Fees
Payment is due at the beginning of each the month in advance, however arrangements can be made to pay either weekly. You will receive an invoice at the end of each month detailing the amount due via My Baby’s Day’s. Fees must still be paid if children are absent without notice for a short period of time. If your child has to be absent over a long period of time, talk to the manager. For your child to keep her/his place at the pre-school you must pay the fees or we must receive nursery education funding for your child.
