Where practical, children are encouraged to prepare their own snacks, to support their independence and understanding of healthy food options.
Please do inform the group of any allergies your child may have. The setting also provides sunscreen and outdoor waterproof clothing is available to ensure children can access the full range of outdoor activities available.
All fees are payable termly in advance; invoices will be issued at the beginning of a 6/7 week term, for payment. Monthly or weekly payment terms can also be arranged for you if this is more convenient. Unfortunately, we are not able to refund fees for occasional sickness or holiday absence and we do require a terms notice (or money in lieu) of a child leaving. In the event of long term illness alternative arrangements can be discussed.
Free early education
The pre-school is registered to receive Free Early Education Entitlement for 2, 3 & 4-year olds. Eligible children can receive, up to 30 hours a week free early education from the funding period following their second (if they qualify) or third birthday. For those children whose sessions are affected by Bank holidays, please note alternative sessions will be offered.
Funding periods run from:
- 1 September to 31 December
- 1 January to 31 March
- 1 April to 31 August
Parents are free to use their funding at any registered setting, and may choose to use their child’s entitlement between settings. For example, parents may choose to use their child’s 15/30 hour funding entitlement between a childminder and a pre-school setting.
Children in receipt of the Free Early Education entitlement are entitled to a maximum of 30 hours of funded pre-school education per week for 38 weeks a year. We offer the Free Early Education in 3-hour blocks, Monday to Friday 9am – 12 noon & 12 noon – 3pm. Any additional non-funded sessions can be paid for by cash, cheque or Bacs. We also accept childcare vouchers available through your employer, or educational establishment.
