Fees are set annually and must be paid in advance. Our fees from September 2018 are £5.50 per hour, which equates to £16.50 for 3 hours, £33.00 for 6 hours, and £13.75 for an afternoon session of 2.5 hours. Payment can be made by BACS, or cash inadvance to the administrator who will issue a receipt. Fees continue to be payable even if a child is absent through sickness or holiday during term time. Should a parent/carer wish their child to stop attending The Owl and Pussycat Pre-school, one month’s notice, in writing must be give, during which time fees are still payable. For further information, please ask our Administrator.
Free Early Education (FEE)
We are registered with Ofsted and can accept children who receive the Free Early Education. This is for a maximum of 38 weeks per year collectively between all settings a child attends subject to availability. You will be eligible to receive this funding the term after your child’s 3rd birthday. The eligible dates are:
A child born between:
1 April - 31 August. The start of term 1 following their third birthday, September until statutory school age.
1 September - 31st December. The start of term 3 following their third birthday, January until statutory school age.
1 January - 31st March. The start of term 5 following their third birthday, April until statutory school age.
There is very little that you have to do. Please bring in your child’s birth certificate for the Administrator to see so that we can verify that they are eligible to receive a Free Early Education place and sign a Parental Declaration form to confirm your child’s details are correct. Without seeing proof of date of birth and having the signed declarations, we will not be able to claim for you and you will have to pay all fees yourself.
Free for 2s
We are also registered to offer Free for 2 funding to those who meet the criteria, this can be arranged through the Administrator.
If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to ask our administrator.
