Council funding is available for all children from the start of the first funding period after their third birthday. The funding entitles each child to a specified number of hours per term of free childcare. We are now pleased to offer 2 year old funding also, subject to certain criteria.  Please speak with a member of staff if you are unsure.

The pre-school fees are only payable for your child’s place throughout the school terms, we do not charge for these places during school holidays.  If you need your child to attend during the holidays then they can be booked into the holiday club.  This is run by the staff of the pre-school during every school holiday (except Christmas).  Please see holiday club for fees etc.

Fees continue to be payable if a child is absent through ill health or holidays. In case of prolonged absence, parents should consult the supervisor about reduced fees. Each child’s attendance at the group is conditional upon continued payment of any necessary fees.

We accept Childcare Vouchers and will accept Tax Free Childcare payments once this scheme has started.
