Early Years Funding

Three and four-year-olds can claim their Government funded 30 hours at Bugbrooke Pre-school from the term after their third birthday.

Fees 2021-2022

Fees will vary depending on whether your child is eligible for the Government funding and, if so, on the number of weeks in a term. Please see below the termly fees for 2021/2022 before any applicable funding is applied.

Please note that lunch club is only covered by funding if you have sufficient hours remaining.

Invoices are sent monthly in advance and we ask that payment is prompt to avoid any late payment charges. Fees can be paid by electronic bank transfer. Details are on your invoice.

If you are having difficulty making payments for any reason, please contact the pre-school immediately so we can help decide the best way forward and you can avoid late payment charges.  Please see our payment policy on the policies page for further information.

We do suggest a voluntary contribution towards the snack provided by pre-school.  A suggested amount is £1.50 per week.  Water is also available for children to drink at any time during the session from our water dispenser.
