Claiming of Government Grant Funding

We are registered to claim the Government Grant funding (FEEE) available for 3-5 year-olds for a trial period to help parents with fees. This funding will reduce fees payable by parents, and consequently the fees invoices for parents of 3-5 year old children will be for less than for 2 year olds. We hope to continue in the Grant scheme. The Nursery Grant (Free Early Education Entitlement) will be available for up to 15 hours per week.


We will automatically claim this funding at the correct time for parents, however, parents should inform us if they are already receiving any funding for their child in another Nursery/Playgroup.


We have very limited number of free 3 year old places for which no extras are charged, these are offered as a block of 5 sessions 3pm-6pm Monday to Friday term time.

As a Montessori School, we provide, and charge for, in addition to the basic grant-funded sessions:


* Fresh fruit or alternative break-time snack for each child every day. This promotes healthy eating at an early age.

* All our Montessori Teachers/keyworkers are employed for additional time each week for planning activities for each individual child to meet their specific learning needs related to learning goals and based on recorded observations in class. A detailed report is provided for each child at the end of each term.

* An extensive range of Montessori learning and play equipment designed to help children develop.

* Montessori trained and qualified staff.

* Extra staff to enable a 1:6 staff to child ratio for 3-4 year-olds. This enables more attention for each child at this important stage in their development, than the 1:8 ratio required by Early Years.

* Where a child attends more than 15 hours per week we also charge for the additional time.


Extra ad-hoc sessions (can be booked subject to availability) and extras are charged:


Morning session (9am-1pm) - £31

Afternoon session (1pm-3pm) - £15.50

Early morning club - (8.30am-9am) - £4.40

Late afternoon (3pm-6pm) - £20

1pm-6pm - £35

Tea - £2.40

Lunch - £3.40


Fees are reviewed in December, and any change is applied from the beginning of the next Summer Term, to give parents a terms notice of any increase. Fee increases are kept to a minimum, to cover increased costs, especially staffing and rent. December 2014 fee review and the fees from the Summer Term 2015 can be found on the right hand side of this page.
