From the term following their 3rd birthday, children attending pre-school sessions will be eligible for 15 hours of free childcare each week, as well as an additional 15 hours funded childcare for certain families. Funding may also be available for eligible 2 year olds. To enquire about this, please get in touch with the Pre-school Manager.
NOTICE PERIOD – A notice period of 4 weeks is required to remove a child from the setting. Fees remain payable during this time and, where applicable, the free entitlement will continue to be claimed from the Local Authority.
LATE COLLECTION – Parents/carers are advised that if they are more than fifteen minutes late collecting their child, there is a charge of fifteen pounds. This is because a child cannot be left alone and two members of staff would be required to stay until the child is collected, therefore the charge covers the cost of staff wages.
NON ATTENDANCE – Fees remain payable for non attendance due to child’s holiday/illness or short term absences.
SETTING CLOSURES – Fees remain payable during closures due to reasons that are beyond our control that may compromise children’s comfort or safety in the setting. Examples include extreme weather conditions such as snow closures, heating breakdown and multiple staff illness.
No fees will be charged for closures due to bank holidays or staff development days.
