Information

Funding

All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free nursery education for 38 weeks of the year. This applies until they reach compulsory school age (the term following their fifth birthday). Your child can therefore attend pre-school free of charge for 15 hours per week from the term following their third birthday, subject to availability of places.

Some families may also be eligible for an additional 15 hours funding (30 hours total). For more information or to check eligibility please visit: https://www.gov.uk/apply-30-hours-free-tax-free-childcare

Fees

The current fees are £12.50 per session for 3/4 year old children and £15 per session for two year old children. 

Fees are payable every half term; you will receive an invoice at the start of each half term, which is payable by the end of that half term.

Please note that 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, please talk to the chair.

Please provide a packed lunch for children attending afternoon sessions. Morning snacks are provided by preschool.
