The playgroup derives all its income from fees, government funding and fund-raising and therefore relies on the prompt payment of fees to meet its commitments.
From September 2016, our fees will be adjusted to take into account the wage increase in April from the new Living Wage, this is our first fee increase in 4 years and we have set our fees out below.
|Fee Structure per session||Explanation|
|£7.00||This is our normal charge per child per session.|
|£3.00 (our extra fees are claimed through the 3 Year Funded Scheme)||This fee is reduced for children the term after their 3rd birthday – The manager will discuss this further.NB Once the child is in the school nursery class this reduced fee stops.|
|£0.00 (our fees are claimed through the Flying Start scheme)||Any child in a Flying Start post code should ask their Health Visitor for a referral to the scheme, you will then be able to claim a free place in our setting the term after your child’s second birthday.|
For more fee information and guidance please see the Manager and/or refer to your policy pack
To make things as easy as possible for parents/carers, we are happy to accept payment in a number of different ways:
- Cash or Cheque to the Manager in Playgroup
- Pay through PayPal directly to firstname.lastname@example.org (child’s full name as a reference)
- Via PayPal Button below (child’s full name, as a reference)
All fees MUST be paid weekly, failure to do so will result in the following;
Step 1 – Anyone 2 weeks in arrears will be given letter 1 (a reminder notice)
Step 2 – Failure to respond to the above notice will result in letter 2 the following week
Step 3 – Failure to respond to the above two notices will result in letter 3 and your child’s suspension with immediate effect. Your child will be able to return to playgroup once the fees are cleared, however if the bill remains unpaid for a week or more then your child’s place will be lost.
Please be aware that paying via the button below incurs a 54p charge for every £10 paid, please add this to your total when paying.
