Funding & Payment

FUNDING & PAYMENTS

Funded Children are entitled to some FREE sessions

 

All 3 and 4 year olds (and some 2yr olds) in England are entitled to 15 hours of free Early Years Education each week for 38 weeks of the year. This begins the term after the child's 3rd birthday.

 

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.

 

Some 2yr olds are entitled to funding the term after they are two (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.


Childcare Vouchers

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 www.inlandrevenue.gov.uk/taxcredits

 

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

 

'Stretched Funding'

 

We can work with parents to take up a pattern of hours which "stretches" their child's entitlement, for example by taking fewer free hours a week, over more weeks of the year. If not all 15 hours are taken each week in term time they can sometimes be used during Holiday Club. Please see Jackie for more details.

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

Payment

 

DISCOUNTS

 

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.

 

 

PAYMENT

 

We invoice payments on a regular monthly basis in advance. 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.

 

 

PAYMENT PLANS

 

If you are concerned about payments please speak to us and we will try to arrange a payment plan for you.
