Fees and Funding


The fees are £16.50 for 3 and 4 year olds, and £17.00 for 2 year olds, for a 3 hr session, payable half termly.  We charge £1.00 per day for snacks & resources.  Parents will receive an invoice at the start of each half term to be paid before the start of the next half term.  Fees must still be paid if the children are absent or on holiday.  If your child has to be absent over a long period of time, talk to the supervisor or chairperson. 


Lunch club

If your child only comes in the morning (9.00am-12.00pm), you have the option to stay an extra hour in our lunch club (12.00-1.00pm) at the cost of £5.50.


Free Funding

Derbyshire County Council gives free funding to all children age 3 and over, this happens the term after the child’s third birthday.  All children are entitled to 5 free sessions and these can be taken at different sessions.  Parents are asked to fill in an FE1 form so that the Derbyshire County Council knows where each child will be claiming the 5 sessions. In certain cases 2 year old children are now entitled to free funding please see staff for information. Also if both parents are working you might be entitled to 30hrs free childcare, parents will need to apply through HMRC using the following link childcare-support.tax.service.gov.uk. You don't have to use all your 30hrs in one setting to qualify, you can split the free entitlement between different settings.
