Fees and Funding

Fees are payable on a half termly basis, our sessions are £15.00 per session. Fees must still be paid if children are absent without notice for a short period of time. If your child has to be absent over a long period of time, please contact the chair of the committee or the leader of the Pre-school. For your child to keep her/his place at the Pre-school, you must pay the fees.

We are in receipt of nursery education funding for three and four year olds; where funding is not received, then fees apply. If you are in receipt of any non-working benefits you could be eligible for a free early learning and childcare place for your two year old.
