The Playschool charges £4.60 per hour until the term following the child’s third birthday, which is payable in advance. Children will be eligible for up to 15 hours of free education (subject to availability) from the term following their third birthday which is funded by the government under the Extended Flexible Entitlement scheme. Should your child claim their grant elsewhere, Playschool will charge a top-up fee, in line with the grant payment, which currently stands at £4.60 per hour. Fees continue to be payable when a child is either absent without notice, or absent for a short period. In cases of prolonged absence, parents should consult the Committee. Each child’s attendance at the Playschool is conditional upon continued payment of fees, and for eligible three and four year olds, the completion of a grant claim under the Extended Flexible Entitlement scheme. 4 weeks' notice is required should you wish to cancel your child’s sessions at Playschool.

Your 30 Hours Childcare and Tax-Free Childcare
All children are eligible for the Early Years Education (EYE) Grant (from the term AFTER their 3rd birthday), entitling you to up to 15 hours per week free childcare.  This is extended to 30 hours if you meet the necessary criteria.
Should you exceed the free entitlement then a ‘top-up’ charge will apply.  This hourly charge will be in line with our grant funding, which currently stands at £4.60 per hour.  The fees for non-grant children are £4.60 per hour.  
Parents can also claim Tax-Free Childcare. For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2, up to £2,000 per child.
