Parents may request extra hours/ Sessions, but must be requested in writing and agreed with Preschool manager in advance. extra hours/ Sessions will be charged at the hourly rate of £5 for all 3 and 4 year old and £5.50 for a 2 year old.

Early Educational Funding only covers the cost of childcare that is provided, all other consumables we use including snacks, Online Access to Learning Book etc are not covered in the funding which we get from the government (which is currently £4 an hour for funded 3-4 year olds and £5.32 for 2 year olds). Due to this deficit, we have been forced to put an additional service charge in place from September 2017, this will be £1 a session in the Pippins room and £1.50 a session in the Apple room. This will not cover the full shortfall between our hourly fees and the EEF however we feel that £1/£1.50 a session is affordable for parents and will cover the additional items we provide.

The additional service charge which is voluntary and is not a condition of receiving the 15 or 30 hours funding entitlement.

If you opted to provide the additional items rather than pay the £1/ £1.50 per session, please see the list below and the attached snack list for items which you will be required to provide:

Snacks from the list provided.

Cereal or bread for toasting (if you attend AM session Apple Room).

Fruit (if your child attends a PM or ALL day session Apple Room).

Nappies, wipes and nappy sacks (If applicable).

Spare clothes and carrier bag.

Sun Cream

Waterproof suit/Jacket and trousers.

High Visibility Jacket.

You will also still need to provide your own packed lunch.

An invoice will be issued when we do a cooking activity, visitors such as Jo Jingles, Jonathans Jungle Roads, music services or external visits to the library. This will not be more than £2.00 per time.

If snacks are required (in the event, they are forgotten) an invoice for £0.50-£1.00 will be issued.

After school club 3.25-4.00 £4.20- (£4.70)

3.25-5.00 £8.20 (£8.70)

3.25-6.00 £11.20 (£11.70)

Friday afterschool 1.00-3.25 £10.70 (£11.20)

A 50p charge will be added to fees for children collected from Haydon Wick, Haydonleigh and Rodbourne Cheney . This is to go towards the cost of the staff member leaving the preschool at 3pm.
