‘Free for 2’

If you are entitled to free Early Education for your 2 year old then this is supplied totally free of charge up to a maximum of 15 hours per week (dependent on what spaces we have available).

 

Free Early Education

The term after your child is 3 years old they are entitled to up to 15 hours of free Early Years Education.  Please note that we are not currently offering the extended 30 hours to eligible parents. This is offered as 5 x 3 hour sessions spread over a week (dependent on what spaces we have available).  If you choose to access this via full days there will be a conditional charge for each ½ hour lunch period, this is currently £2.80.  Should you wish to access more than your 15 hours of Free Early Education, this will be charged at £13.70 / 3-hour session.

 

Not Yet Entitled to Funding

Your child will be offered morning sessions and the current price for this 3 hour session is £13.70.

 

What Else Might be on my Invoice?

Once you have accepted a place for your child we ask for a non refundable £30 Registration Fee.  If you are accessing your 15 hours of Free Entitlement, but with no other wraparound services, (i.e. lunch time) this becomes a voluntary contribution.

An early start from 8.30am is available with limited spaces at an extra cost of £5 per day.

We provide a contact bag for children to take their work home in and for you to send information in to us.  Should you choose to have one for your child a charge of £4.50 will be added to your first invoice.

We offer sports activities during some of our afternoon sessions, and should you wish to take advantage of these, a contribution towards the costs of running these will be added to your invoice at a cost of £4 per session.

There will also be a consumables charge added 3 times per year of £30.00 to cover the costs of snack, nappies, sun cream, cooking ingredients, craft supplies etc.
