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

Some parents will be eligible for tax free childcare, to check eligibility please visit

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.
