Fees & Funding

Fees

Fees are charged per session and are currently under review.
If your child is not eligible for funding, you will be given an invoice half termly and payment will be due within 14 days.
If you do not pay your fees on time, you may be charged a late fee.
Failure to pay your fees could result in your child losing their place.

Afternoon sessions (Tuesdays & Thursdays) are only available for children who are 3 years or over. These sessions are charged, as these can only be used in addition to FEEE 3/4 funding, which does not cover them. If you receive 30 hours funding, then you may be able to use this for the additional hours, if your child is attending all morning sessions.

Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) 3 & 4 year old funding

All children are entitled to Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) from the term AFTER their third birthday.
Parents must complete a termly parental declaration form to access this funding, which is applied for by the Pre-School.
A maximum of 15 hours per week can be claimed, but please only claim for the amount of hours that your child actually attends.
The 15 hours can also be split between 2 providers, but any hours over 15 that your child attends must be paid for by the parent.

2 year old funding

If your child is under 3 years old, you may be entitled to 2 year old funding.

Please be aware that this must be in place BEFORE your child starts.
