Fees & Funding

We make a charge of £14 per session.  We try to keep our fees as low as possible and this is achieved by fund raising.

If you have a two year old it might be that you are eligible for "two year old funding" which is curretnly means tested.   To check whether you are eligible and apply online please follow this link http://www.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/freeentitlementtoearlyeducation

If you are eligible for the two year old funding we will need to see the letter confirming this.

After a child's third birthday ALL CHILDREN are eligible for 15 hours free early years education (3 hours each morning) . This begins the term following their birthday.  You can also if you wish split your funding between more than one setting.

You will be asked to complete a funding form and we will need to see the child's birth certificate.  If you need any help in filling in forms please ask Judy who will be pleased to help.

Some children aged three and over are also entitiled to additional funds known as "Early Years Pupil Premium".   This is a means tested payment which comes to the setting and is used specifically for your child.   We will chat with you and listen to how you think this money should be spent.  For example if you have a child with speech and language difficulties it might be possible for us to engage the services of a speech therapist to come into our sessions and support your child, advise the staff and work with you to help the child's language  development.  To see whether you are eligible follow this link http://www.bracknell-forest.gov.uk/earlyyearspupilpremium

Our high adult ratios also allow us to offer one to one support for those children who would benefit.
