Fees & Funding

Our fees are reviewed on an annual basis.

Currently our childcare fees are £5.15 per hour.

All children who are 3 years old can access 15 hours of funded childcare and may be entitled to up to 30 funded hours. For funded 3 year olds there is a suggested sustainability donation of £1 per hour for daily fruit, art materials, washing costs etc. 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.
