Admissions, Fees and Funding

Admissions Policy

The pre-school is an equal opportunities playgroup, which is open to all sections of the community. We operate a waiting list for general admission with the main criteria being:

Please do come and visit us – we are always happy to show people what we can offer. To arrange a visit please contact us to arrange a mutually convenient time.

Fees and Funding

A one-off non-refundable registration fee of £40 is required for unfunded children. There is no fee for funded children.

Fees are currently £15 per session for unfunded children, payable half-termly in advance. Fees will increase to £17 per session from September 2018. Payment must be received by the first day of term at the latest.

Payment is preferred by BACS. Details are supplied on your invoice.

Please note that fees continue to be payable if a child is absent. In cases of prolonged absence, parents should consult the committee about fee payment. Each child's attendance at pre-school is conditional upon continued payment of any necessary fees. Please note that we require half a term's written notice of intention to leave the pre-school, otherwise a full term's fees will be charged.

Funding

We are registered with the London Borough of Bromley for Free Early Education funding. Our opening hours are 15 hours per week but we are part of the 30 hours funding scheme and are able to offer funding for eligible children who use part of their entitlement at another setting. Funding is generally available from the term after a child's 3rd birthday.

Childcare vouchers

We are registered to accept payment via various childcare voucher schemes, which can be used for full or part payment of fees. Please ask for details.
