Fees and funding


Childcare Choices has full details of the Government help available with childcare costs for parents.

Universal funded early education

  • We offer 15 hours a week funded early years education to children from the January, September or April following their 3rd birthday.

  • These 15 hours are offered as either mornings (3 hours) or full days (6 hours)

  • Sessions are allocated according to our admissions policy https://www.bradbourneparkpreschool.com/admissions

  • You may be entitled to a further 15 hours of 'extended' funding subject to you meeting the qualifying criteria - we offer 2 places.

  • If your child is only funded for the universal 15 hours but you would like additional hours over and above this, you may pay for additional sessions subject to availability.

Free For 2 (FF2) Funding

  • Some children receive funding after their 2nd birthday, we offer 2 funded places.

Entitlement to a Free Early Education place does not offer a guarantee of a place at any one provider or a particular pattern of delivery.

Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP)

  • Additional funding for Pre-school is available for some children after their 3rd birthday.

  • We will ask you to give permission for your eligibility to be checked on the parental declaration form for Free Early Education - we can apply on your behalf.


  • Additional sessions for funded 3 and 4 year olds 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 (the term after their 3rd birthday) sessions are charged at £7.00 per hour.

  • Invoices will be issued in advance, with the expectation of their being paid prior to the start of term.

Voluntary snack donation

  • Early years funding covers the care & education of your child, but is not intended to cover additional costs such as snack or consumables.

  • We ask for a £10 contribution at the start of each double term towards the cost of your child's snack please. This is a voluntary charge and all children will continue to be offered snack regardless of whether you choose to pay this. We are, however, very grateful to those parents who do choose to pay this small charge and help support Pre-school.

Tax free childcare

We are registered with the Government Tax Free Childcare scheme, where the Government will contribute £2 in every £10 spent on childcare.
