Booking Information

We are priced to reflect the high-quality service we provide, as we are not offering a basic provision. We are a business that wishes to remain sustainable for the many years to come to ensure we can offer your children the very best quality in play learning, mental well being and developmental outcomes needed in early years to flourish later in life.

We are here to meet a local demand to support working and unique individual families requirements.

We aim to operate a fair, transparent service which is all inclusive with no hidden costs. Our prices are fixed until January 2020.

We feel we have established a clear pricing structure that allows all of our families who are entitled to access 2, 3 and 4 year old funding the opportunity to do so without limitation, whilst we maintain our high-quality service.

Our operational hours are 7 am to 7 pm, Monday to Friday, 51 weeks a year excluding bank holidays. We close for one week over the festive break in December. 

 

Weekly Packages

We suggest a minimum of 2 days per week for your child to attend the setting, to ensure they settle and benefit the most from our environment.

We average our weekly packages over 51 weeks and divide this into 12 calendar monthly payments, which are payable in advance each month.

Fees will be adjusted when your child moves rooms.

Parents accessing funding must provide us with an up to date eligibility code prior to starting with us. This code must then be renewed online by the government deadline, otherwise normal daily rates will be set as default.

 

Payment information

All payments are to be paid in advance, and our unique booking system will invoice you accordingly and hold all of your account histories for access when required. A downloadable version will soon be available. 

An annual registration fee of £50 per family is to be paid and will automatically apply to your account. 

If your child’s start date is within the next calendar month, a deposit of £100 will be due to secure your child’s place.  This deposit will be deducted from your first month’s payment once they start with us. 

For bookings over one calendar month away please contact management to check availability and to be added to our waiting list. To secure future bookings fees will apply. 

If your fees are not paid by their due date, which is the last day of each month, late fees of £50 per day that passes will be added to your account. If you are in financial difficulties please do talk to management. 

Once you have registered your child and have made your booking, your place will be secure on a rolling basis until you give us half a terms notice (6 weeks). Shorter cancellations will be charged at the full rate. Exceptional circumstances may be accepted if your place can be filled.

Funding

Free education and childcare for 2-year-olds if you get benefits

Your 2-year-old can get free early education and childcare if you live in England and get one of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Universal Credit
  • Tax credits and you have an annual income of under £16,190 before tax
  • The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
  • Support through part 6 of the Immigration and Asylum Act
  • The Working Tax Credit 4-week run on (the payment you get when you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)

A child can also get free early education and childcare if any of the following apply:

  • They’re looked after by a local council
  • They have a current statement of special education needs (SEN)or an education, health and care (EHC) plan
  • They get Disability Living Allowance
  • They’ve left care under a special guardianship order, child arrangements order or adoption order

If you’re eligible the free early education and childcare:

15 hours free childcare

All children in England get 570 free hours per year. It’s usually taken as 15 hours a week for 38 weeks of the year, but you can choose to take fewer hours over more weeks, for example.

You can get it from the term after your child’s 3rd birthday.

30 hours free childcare

You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take).

If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you sign up online to get a code to give to your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts.

Eligibility

You can usually get 30 hours free childcare if you (and your partner, if you have one) are:

  • In work – or getting parental leave, sick leave or annual leave
  • Each earning at least the National Minimum Wage or Living Wage for 16 hours a week – this is £120 if you’re over 25

This earnings limit doesn’t apply if you’re self-employed and started your business less than 12 months ago.

You’re not eligible if:

  • Your child doesn’t usually live with you
  • The child is your foster child
  • Either you or your partner has a taxable income over £100,000

You can get 30 hours free childcare at the same time as claiming Universal Credit, tax credits or childcare vouchers.

If you can’t work

You may still be eligible if your partner is working, and you get Incapacity Benefit, Severe Disablement Allowance, Carer’s Allowance or Employment and Support Allowance.

Apply for 30 hours free childcare

You’ll need your details (and your partner’s, if you have one), including your:

  • National Insurance number
  • Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR), if you’re self-employed

It takes 20 minutes to apply. You may find out if you’re eligible straight away, but it can take up to 7 days.

All childcare vouchers are accepted but from April 2018 these will only be available to parents who are already enrolled onto a scheme. For those not enrolled, the new government tax free childcare scheme maybe available to you and seems to be very rewarding from our studies for the majority of families including self-employed.

We suggest to all parent to check your eligibility monthly on the gov.uk calculator.
