Fees & Funding

Our current fees for 2 year old children are £17.50 for a 3-hour session and £15.50 for a 3-hour session for 3 and 4 year olds.

We require a £35.00 non-refundable deposit to process an application for a place at preschool. Upon starting, £30.00 is deducted from your first invoice and we provide your child with a book bag. Fees are paid in advance per half term and we accept childcare vouchers and are signed up to the government’s tax free childcare scheme.

We offer government funded places and accept extended entitlement funding for eligible 3 and 4 year old children. The Flying Start for 2 year olds funding is also available for families that are eligible. Please visit Derby City Council Families Information Service

You will in most cases, be eligible for five funded 3-hour sessions, or up to ten sessions if you are eligible for extended funding.

For more information on funding, extended funding and the government tax free childcare scheme and to apply for the extended entitlement funding for 3 and 4 year olds please go to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk 

You may decide you require additional sessions to the funded ones and these are charged at the normal rate for a 3-hour session.

Funding for your child can normally be claimed the term after their third birthday. Therefore if their birthday is between:

1st January – 31st March they receive funding from April (summer term)

1st April – 31st August they receive funding from September (autumn term)

1st September – 31st December they receive funding from January (spring term)
