How to join
We welcome children from 2 and a half, but don't worry if they're not potty trained or you're concerned that they might not be ready to be left without you. We will work with you to make sure your child is reassured and comfortable.
Our joining fee is £20 which is payable once we offer you a place for your child. On joining, all children receive a smart book bag free of charge, and non-funded children also recieve a Youth Club Pre-school uniform t-shirt once we recieve payment of your first set of fees.
Additional pre-school t-shirts are available to purchase at £4.50 each, and polo shirts for £7.
Our daily session charge for non-funded children is £13.95 (09:00 until 12:00) and includes a drink and a healthy snack. We will let you know the daily snack on the notice board and in the weekly newsletter to help you keep track of what new foods your child might be enjoying. From the term after your child turns 3, we will claim the funding to pay for their place from the Local Authority, giving you up to 15 hours of free child care. Extended funding is also avalible for up to 25 hours for children who meet the criteria. This gives you the option of extra hours, meaning you can extend your child's sessions to 09:00 - 14:00.
