We require a minimum of 6 weeks written notice if you wish to decrease the number of sessions you need or if you no longer require your child's place.
Invoices will be left in your child's tray and will state the payment due date. Late payments will incur a £15 charge and £5 per week thereafter. If payment is not made after this your child's place may be withdrawn in line with the powers of the committee in section 3.1 of the constitution.
Children will receive their 15 hours government funding the term after their 3rd birthday. You will need to fill out a form which you can get from the Manager.
As of September 2017 we will be offering the 30 hours free entitlement, this will be offered depending on availability of sessions. This is available to working parents who meet the criteria and can be used at more than one childcare provider.
To find out if you may qualify for this entitlement please see the Childcare choices website. www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
If you require more than 15 hours and do not qualify for the 30 hours entitlement, you will need to pay and will be invoiced at the start of each term.
We do provide places for 2 year olds who are government funded - please ask for more details.
You may also qualify for additional funding (early years pupil premium) Please see the link below.
We ask parents to provide resources to help us keep costs down, keep an eye out on the door for things we need.
