All funded children are required to pay a fee each session to cover the cost of consumables that are not covered by your free funding. We also request a donation every term, details of costs can be found in your starter pack.

Fees continue to be payable if a child is absent. Charges are made for late collection of £5.00 for the first 5 minutes and £10.00 per 15 minutes thereafter.

Please note, we require a half-terms notice if you wish to change the number of sessions your child attends. All fees associated with notice are payable.

In order to achieve this we have an established set of policies to ensure we meet the needs of the children, their parents and carers, as well as our financial and legal obligations.
