Fees and eligibility for funding.
All three and four-year-olds are entitled to 15 hours per week of FREE early education, for 38 weeks of the year (known as the free entitlement or Free Early Education Entitlement). Children become eligible for this funding from the beginning of September, January or April following their third birthday. Please see the chart for further information.
In addition, some children may be eligible to the extended funding of 30 hours per week. Term time places may be available for funded children. We can advise on any aspect of the fee structure; and submit claims on your behalf as appropriate.
Fees are payable for 50 weeks of the year – we are closed for specified periods annually around Christmas and Easter. Fees are due monthly in advance. Fees are usually reviewed annually in the summer. Please contact us for current fee rates.
