Fees & Funding
Our fees are reviewed on an annual basis. Currently:
Childcare fees are £4.10 per hour and there is a suggested sustainability donation of £1 per hour for daily fruit, art materials, washing costs etc.
From August 2021 childcare fees will increase to £4.15 per hour (in line with government funding amounts) plus the sustainability donation.
All Children who are 3 years old can access 15 hours of funded childcare and may be entitled to up to 30 funded hours and will only be asked to pay the sustainability donation. Eligible 2 year-olds may get 15 hours of funding too. This funding is known as FEEE.
To receive FEEE funding parents are required to check eligibility at https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs
Some parents will be eligible for tax free childcare, to check eligibility please visit https://www.gov.uk/help-with-childcare-costs/tax-free-childcare
Fees are normally billed at the beginning of each half term and prompt payment is appreciated. This enables us to keep fees at a minimum and helps our limited cash flow. Arrangements can be made with the treasurer for anyone wishing to pay on a more regular basis. If you are in receipt of FEEE funding, this will be paid directly to the Playgroup by the Council.
