Funding and fees
All children over the age of three are entitled to 15 hours funded early years education. Please follow this link to information on the options for parents and when to apply for funding on the Oxfordshire County Council website: http://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/public-site/early-years-education
Session fees for children who are not yet eligible for funding, or whose parents require additional sessions over and above 15 hours are outlined below. We do try as hard as possible to keep fees as low as possible, however they are subject to change at the discretion of the committee.
Fees for a 3 hour session – £15 per session.
Other costs: we ask for a 20p contribution for toast each time your child attends
Fees are payable termly in advance (we will issue you with an invoice) and must be settled within 4 weeks of the start of the term. We are fully set up to accept Childcare Vouchers.
Children under three may be eligible for up to 15 hours per week of nursery education, through the Free Early Education Entitlement for Two Year Olds scheme. To be considered for this funding a financial assessment form will need to be completed by the parent/carer and approved by Oxfordshire County Council. Once the form has been approved you will be notified as to whether your child is eligible for funding and a place can then be offered.
