Any additional sessions are charged at £6.00 per hour, with the funded sessions taken at the start of the week. Until they are eligible for this funding, children are charged at £7.00 per hour.


As our funding isn’t sufficient to cover the cost of the snacks we provide, we ask for a contribution please - £10 at the start of each double term.


Some children receive funding after their 2nd birthday, if you think you may be eligible, the following link has more details -
