In the first term after a child reaches the age of three, they will qualify for the Early Years Education Grant (EYE). The EYE grant enables all parents to claim 15 free hours of Nursery education per week for 38 weeks per year. This means that parents do not pay £72.00* per day for up to 38 weeks of the year as the EYE Grant is deducted and we do not charge top up fees for the funded hours.

Please note: Children will be charged the 3 year old rate once they turn 3, regardless of whether or not they qualify for that term’s EYE funding.

PLEASE NOTE WE CHARGE A LATE PICK UP FEE FROM 6PM UP TO 6.15PM £20 & FROM 6.15 UP TO 6.30PM £40. THESE CHARGES APPLY THROUGHOUT THE EARLY YEARS DEPARTMENT.
