Children can join our setting from the age of 2 years onward. We ask that children attend a minimum of 2 sessions per week (and when in receipt of funding a minimum of 3 sessions per week) so that they can get the most out of our method of education and we can get to know them properly.

Deposit & Registration Fee

In order for us to keep a space open for your child we require a deposit of £150, payable once we have confirmed a space. When your child leaves our setting at the end of their time with us, we will offset the full amount of the deposit against your child’s last half-termly bill.This deposit is non-refundable if you subsequently decide not to take up your space of if you give us less than a half-terms notice of your intention to leave.

A non-refundable registration fee of £35 will be charged to your child’s first half-termly bill to help offset our registration costs.

Deposits & Registration fees only apply to non-government funded child-care hours.

Child-care Vouchers & 'Tax-free Childcare'

If your employer uses a voucher system for your child-care benefits we are happy to register with the body in question. Please let us know the details.

Moving on

Please can you let us know at least a half-term in advance if your child is going to be leaving our setting. This will help us with staff planning and enable us to offer the free space to another family with plenty of notice.
