Fees are payable in advance and continue to be payable even if a child is absent.

Fees must be paid within the first 14 days to guarantee the child’s place or we must receive nursery education funding for your child.  



The individual hourly rate for non-funded hours and extra hours is currently £6.49 per hour. All hours must be paid for. 


The individual rate for resources and snack for Free Early Education (FEE) funded hours is currently £1.50 per daily session.*

(*Note that while fees for funded hours are supported by the vast majority of parents, it is possible to opt out of these before accepting a place at our preschool. These fees cater for the following:

•         Nutritious morning snack

•         Fun outings

•         Events

•         Visits from interesting people

•         Art supplies

•         Nappies and wipes


Please speak to the Preschool Manager to find out how you will be impacted if you opt out of the charge for FEE funded sessions. For example, if an outing or event is planned for the children you will be required to pay a fee to enable your child to participate or you will have to make other arrangements for your child for the specific day.



Free Early Years Education funding for 3 and 4 year olds – Extended entitlement (30 hours childcare)

Working parents of 3-and 4-year olds who are eligible will be able to apply for up to another 15 hours of early years education or childcare per week for 38 weeks. This is called the ‘extended’ entitlement.

For more information:


Some 2 year olds are also eligible for 15 hours free childcare, for example if you get certain benefits.

Settling your child in

We want your child to feel happy and safe at the pre-school. You and your child are invited to visit the preschool as often as you wish in the term before they are due to start. All children are treated individually and staff work closely with parents and carers to ensure a smooth transition.

Working together for your children

In our setting we maintain the ratio of adults to children in the setting that is set through the Welfare Requirements. We also have volunteer parent helpers and students where possible to complement these ratios. This helps us to:  give time and attention to each child; talk with the children about their interests and activities; help children to experience and benefit from the activities we provide; and allow the children to explore and be adventurous in safety.


You and your child will be introduced to your child’s keyperson when you first join the group. The keyperson will develop a meaningful relationship with your child and yourself ensuring that your child’s needs are being fulfilled within the group.

What to wear

Please dress your child in play clothes.  Some of our activities are messy and aprons are worn but children will play more confidently knowing that mum or dad doesn’t mind if they get messy. We do have sweatshirts and Polo shirts with our logo on which are available to buy but they are not compulsory. We do use the outside area in all weathers so the children need coats, wellies or sun cream as appropriate.

What happens if my child is ill?

It's unavoidable that small children catch all kinds of minor infections. For a speedy recovery and to prevent the other children from falling ill, children who are unwell must stay at home. Only when the fever has subsided for a whole day should you return your child to the nursery. If the disease is infectious, we'll need a doctor's note confirming that your child is no longer contagious.
