More Details


Late collection fees will be applied where applicable






We offer a 10% discount for siblings when you have more than one child at the

same session at Breakfast Club, Pre-School, Lunch Club or After School Club.



We invoice payments on a regular monthly basis in arrears. We request payment within 7 days


Unfortunately we are unable to refund fees for absences, including holidays or sickness, due to the fixed costs we incur, such as staff wages.

If you decide to cancel your child’s place, we require one months notice in writing

of the cancellation





If you are concerned about payments please speak to us and we will try to arrange

a payment plan for you

Childcare Vouchers and Government Funded Places


Every child, from the beginning of the term after they are three, are entitled to

15hrs per week free Early Years Education.

Some 2yr olds are entitled to funding the term after they are two (conditions apply). Please ask if you think you may be eligible.

Some 3 and 4yr olds are entitled to 30hrs per week free Early Years Education,  from the term after they are three, if their parents are working (conditions apply). Please ask if you think you may be eligible.

From the first term that your child is eligible for this free childcare, we will need to see his or her birth certificate as evidence of age, and you will need to complete and sign an application for the free childcare. Then, every term from this point we will just need you to sign a renewal form


For more information about Funding please look on our Parents Zone page at the 'Funding' Section


Please note, that when your child starts school, if he or she is on a part time basis, the free child care sessions are automatically transferred over to the school


If you are not using funded sessions, such as Breakfast Club, Lunch Club etc, then you may be entitled to receive help towards fees via the Child Tax Credit. For more information phone their help line on 0845 300 3900 (8am-8pm) or visit


We also accept some Childcare Voucher Schemes, so please speak to either Jackie Grant or Sarah Barlow if you would like more information regarding childcare vouchers or wish to pay using one of these schemes
