Fees and Funding
Our fees offer a 5% discount for standing order or BACS payments, as the bank charges are less and we feel it is fair to pass this saving to you.
We also offer a discount on siblings, this ranges from 2% to 5% depending upon the amount of children we look after.
2 year old funding
The government have given eligible parents 15 hours of childcare for the term after a child reaches 2, your eligibility can be checked on Stoke Council website, under 2 year funding.
We are happy to accept children for 2 year funding and hours can be 3 hours per day (9am-12am), or 5 hours over 3 days (9am – 2pm) or 7.5 hours over 2 days (9am -4.30pm) all subject to availability at the setting.
3 and 4 year funding
ALL children are entitled to 15 hours early years education, the term after they are three. Our funding hours are 3 hours per day (9am-12am), or 5 hours over 3 days (9am – 2pm) or 7.5 hours over 2 days (9am -4.30pm) all subject to availability at the setting.
The children are entitled to stay at the setting until they go to school, and this can be the term that they are 5. Though many children do go earlier they can stay with us too.
