Opening Hours + Funding
We offer government funded sessions up to 15 hours per week, per child, for all children from the first term after their third Birthday.
We offer Free For 2 funding for eligible children. Further information can be found here: https://www.kent.gov.uk/education-and-children/childcare-and-pre-school/free-childcare/guide-to-free-for-2-funding
We also offer the extended funded hours (30 hours) for eligible children. Information on whether you are eligible can be found on the government website.
For eligible children, these funded sessions can be taken as follows:-
Morning Session 3hrs 9:00-12:00pm
Afternoon Session 3hrs 12:00-3:00pm
To enable us to maintain a relatively even number of pupils throughout our available sessions, only three morning sessions may be funded before taking an afternoon session. If an afternoon session has been allocated, a fourth morning session may then be taken. Non-funded sessions can be taken as and when convenient, provided there are spaces available.
Our standard hourly rate for Non-Funded hours is £7 per hour. As an introductory offer during our opening term, all specialist activities are provided at no additional cost, however there will be a small cost associated with activities and snacks from January 2020.
Our Early Bird sessions (8:30-9:00am) are charged at £3.50 in line with our standard hourly rate.
