All parents are entitled to 15 hours government funded child care for children in the term after they have turned three, so the fees shown are for children who are not yet in the term after they have turned three or for hours in excess of 15.

 

We also charge a one-off annual maintenance fee of £40 to cover pre-school essentials required on a day-to-day basis such as cleaning equipment, paint, paper, tissues etc and also your subscription to our online learning journey, eyLog. This fee is charged to all parents regardless of when they join the pre-school and will cover that particular academic year, so if your child is with us for two years, you can expect two invoices for this. Even if you are in receipt of full government funding, this is an addition which cannot be claimed from the funding and is to be paid by parents.

Please note that the Acland Hall is a registered polling station and as such needs to be made available when requested by West Berkshire Council. As a result there may be ad-hoc days when the pre-school needs to closed to accommodate this. Advance notice will always be given to parents.
