Our hourly rate is progressively discounted as more hours are attended (hours of siblings are combined to reduce the hourly rate) and includes breakfast, morning snack, afternoon snack and tea. While the registered hours form part of the huge jigsaw of attendance patterns we try to be flexible where we are able.  All providers offer the Universal Funding (known as 15hrs).  We also offer a flexible approach to the Enhanced Funding (NB schools give 30hrs x 38wks while we give 22.8hrs x 50wks - both equal 1140hrs).                                                                                                                                                                                                                                With the Enhanced Funding there are various options and it is probably best to speak to us to find out if we can help not in the least to find out if we have space.  Eligible parents of 3 and 4 year olds can claim up to 1140 funded hours per year from September 2017.  There are charges for day-to-day additional services such as hot lunches that are cooked off-site, nursery snacks and external activities such as visits and trips.  However it is worth noting that the government funds these hours only at £4.00hr - this equates to unfunding compared to our standard £5.70 hourly rate.  Our parental agreement therefore reserves the right to charge for additional services that are not part of the government funding.  Unlike school funding (providing there is space) our funded hours can be taken at times that suit you.   The links below are available after log in.
