Fees and Registration

Fees

We charge £4.15 per hour.

At least two sessions must be attended per week (this is to ensure that your child settles fully).

We accept all voucher schemes. Payment can be made via BACs.

Funded hours 

Tax Free Childcare 

Parents/carers can sign up to a government Tax Free childcare scheme.  For every £8 a parent pays in childcare costs the government pays £2.

To find out more about the scheme please see Extended hours below. 

Please note: 

  • You cannot make use of the Tax Free childcare scheme and a childcare voucher scheme (usually through your employer).

Funding for children aged three and over 

Universal hours

All children aged 3 – 4 years will receive the universal 15 hours per week government funding the term after their 3rd Birthday. Children who attend for more than 15 hours each week will receive an invoice for all additional hours.

Parents/carers do not need to do anything to qualify for the universal hours.  The setting will claim this on your behalf.

Extended hours

Some parents/carers may be eligible to receive extended 15 hours per week government funding for their child after their 3rd Birthday.

Parents/carers can check whether they could be eligible for a range of government childcare offers, including 30 hours, via Childcare Choices at: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk or the Childcare Calculator at: https://www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator.

The eligibility criteria for 30 hours and Tax-Free Childcare are broadly aligned. For a more detailed guide to the 30 hours eligibility criteria see: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/30-hours-free-childcare-eligibility.

Parents will be able to apply for both 30 hours and Tax-Free Childcare at the same time by entering their details once. HMRC will check parents’ eligibility for both schemes at the same time. 

PLEASE NOTE:

  • You can only register for and make use of the Tax-Free Childcare/voucher scheme OR extended hours.
  • You must check your eligibility for the Extended hours the term prior to your child receiving his/her funding.
  • You must register and receive your extended hours eligibility code the term prior to your child receiving his/her funding. 

 Two-year-old funding 

In some circumstances children aged 2 -3 years may be eligible to receive 15 hours universal government funding.
