This encourages a good all round knowledge which will help the children in their lives both now and in the future.

I encourage all children to have positive self image, self worth and a strong independence.
All children who are able to do so are encouraged to put their empty plates/ cups and cutlery in the sink, place their own coats on their individual pegs and pictures in their drawers. This encouages an understanding into 'housekeeping' which will be beneficial in years to come.

I also encourage celebrations of other cultures such as chinese new year, diwali, Holi ect this encourages a sense of diversity for the children which will also be important through out their lives.

Free Early Eduaction Entitlement
We can offer the FEEE to children aged 3 and 4 years old.
We can offer 15 hours term time only
or 
12 hours all year round.
This is a maximum of 6 hours per day.

If your child attends only the funded sessions you will need to pay £2.00 for lunch or provide a packed lunch.
If your child attends paying hours as well as funded sessions, one of your paying hours will be used between 12 & 1pm to cover lunch making lunch inclusive.

FEEE wrap around
We are happy to offer wrap around care for you child. However because we will need to drop off your child and/or pick them up, and your child will be taking up a early years space making the space unfillable, you will be charged whilst your child is at pre-school. This will also mean that should nursery/pre-school be closed for half terms, inset days and strikes if attached to a school. This is to ensure your child's space is not filled and you are able to use it during closures. 

Term time only children
We can offer term time only.
In order to ensure your child's place is kept available for the next term, a retainer of 50% is payable during half terms and summer holidays. You will have the right to send your child in the holidays for the sessions they attend during term time, however you will need to pay the additional 50% to bring it up to the daily cost.

Holiday care
Holiday care will be offered as and when possible. You will be required to fill in an extra sessions form.

Additional days and hours
Additional days and hours need to be agreed at least 24 hours in advance and you will be required to fill in a extra session form. In order to cancel the extra session you will need to give 24 hours notice. Any notice less than 24 hours and the session will still be chargeable.

Additional hour fee's
Under 5 years between 7.30am and 6.30pm   £4.50 per hour
Over 5 years between 7.30am and 6.30pm                            £5.00 per hour

Add your Child to our Waiting List
I am currently operating a waiting list, If you would like to be added to my waiting list please send me the following information to [email protected] - There is no charge for this and you will receive an email when a space becomes available, you will have first refusal on the space. If I have not heard from you within 14 days of sending you an email, I will assume you no longer need the space and offer it to someone else. However if you could reply letting me know whether you need the space or not that would be great. Tara x

Important Information- Please Read.

If You are going to be late please contact me so I can make appropriate arrangements

Late collection Fees
If you are continuously late in collecting your child not only does this cause an inconvenience to myself as it disrupts the routine but it can also be very upsetting for your child.
I will not charge for a one off late collection but if you are continuously late I will impose a late fee of £5 for every 10mins
If the lateness continues I retain the right to terminate our contract.

Late payments
If I have not received your payment by the last day of the month I will contact you by Message, E-mail or in person about payment. If payment is not received by the 3rd of the next month I will contact you again and add a late fee this will be £5 for every day your payment is late. 
I do not wish for this to happen as I would prefer to have good relationships with all my parents, carers and children.
