We are in receipt of Nursery Education Funding (NEF) for three and four year olds for up to 15 hours a week. From September 2017, we will also be in receipt of additional funding (30 Hours Entitlement) for a further 6 hours which some children will be entitled to and can be applied for by parents. For those not yet eligible for funding, fees are charged at £12.03 per session. Once your child is eligible for NEF funding, but not the 30 Hours Entitlement, additional sessions are charged at £13.03. All fees are invoiced and payable at the start of terms 1, 3 and 5. Fees must still be paid if children are absent, however, if your child has to be absent over a long period of time please talk to the Chairperson.
In addition to the above fees we ask all parents for a pre-school fund donation of £30, this money goes towards activities eg. cooking, celebration activities, additional craft materials and resources. We also ask for a donation of £20 for those children who attend Forest School to help cover costs incurred. We continue to fundraise throughout the year to provide additional funds which help with replacing or buying new equipment, refurbishing the pre-school rooms and garden, etc. The pre-school and committee welcome fundraising ideas and rely on the involvement of parents and carers.
We charge a one off non-refundable administration fee of £15 when you submit an application form for your child to join pre-school.
