The Pre-school and Nursery prices are for children paying fees, for example, children under three and those who are three but not yet eligible to access funding. The fees are calculated on a daily basis according to the child’s age. You may request to increase sessions and can be accepted as long as there is an available place for your child. Otherwise your child will be placed on a waiting list for those sessions.  To check if you qualify for funding please use the following website:

Early bird club can be requested when you need it on an adhoc basis if there are spaces available. Ideally it is best to book at least a week in advance.

After school club will need to be requested termly.

Children accessing Government Nursery Education Funding from the term after they turn 3 years old, can attend up to a maximum of five sessions per week up to 15 hours per week. The funding may be shared with one other provider. Anything over the 15 hour funding (5 sessions) will be charged at the above rates.

If you are unsure whether to take up the additional sessions, it is better to apply for the code and then decide afterwards. The code cannot be applied for after 31st August 2021 for funding from 1st September 2021. Eligible codes applied for late (i.e. after 1st September 2020) will only be valid for funding for the Spring term 2022 onwards.
