Funding and Fees
Q. How much will it cost for my child to attend playschool?
A. We charge £13.50 for each session your child attends. There is also a ‘paper & paint’ charge of £8 each half term to cover the cost of resources your child will use.
And an initial registration fee £30.
Q. Do you offer a discount to parents placing more than one child at playschool?
A. Yes, we offer a 20% discount on fees for the oldest child attending playschool.
Q. Can I book extra sessions?
A. We are very happy to accommodate a request for extra sessions if we have the places available and are within our ratios. Please speak to a member of staff for availability.
Q. Do you accept childcare vouchers?
A. Yes, we accept all childcare vouchers from employer schemes. Check with your employer if they offer childcare vouchers.
Q. My child is 3 years old – how do I get the free funding from the government?
A. All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free playschool education in the term following their 3rd birthday, for 38 weeks of the year. This applies until they reach compulsory school age (the term following their fifth birthday). We will apply for your free funding from the local authority for the term after your child reaches three years old and the funding will be deducted from your playschool fees.
Q. How often do you review your fees and when do we have to pay our fees?
A. Our fees are reviewed annually. Payment is made each half term, either by bank transfer or childcare vouchers. We also accept cash or cheque payments and have credit/debit card facilities.
