If there are any concerns about the following fees or payment of fees generally, parents are requested to talk to the Pre-School Chairman or Treasurer whose details appear on the display board in the entrance hall of the setting.
Fees are £4.50 per child 3+ per hour.
All three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week of free nursery education for 38 weeks of the year from the term following their third birthday. If parents choose to use funding at Hanney Pre-School they are requested to inform us to make the application on their behalf. If parents wish their child to attend for additional hours they will be charged according to the rates detailed above.
Parents should be aware that we do invite children to move up to the 3-5s sessions immediately following their third birthday, although for some this will mean that there is an interim period before they are eligible for funding and therefore if they chose to take up the place at this point they will be responsible for covering fees until that point at the rate detailed above.
|Children who are 3 between:||Eligible for 15 hours funding from:|
|1st April and 31st August||September|
|1st September and 31st December||January|
|1st January and 31st March||April|
Fees will be invoiced half-termly in advance. Payment is due within 7 days from receipt of invoice, or the invoice date if later, unless an alternative arrangement is agreed with the Management Committee.
Payments can be made in cash or by cheque. Cheques should be made payable to Hanney Pre-School. Alternatively, parents may choose to pay fees directly in to our bank account. The details of which are:
|Bank Name:||Barclays Bank Plc|
Parents are requested to use their child’s name as reference for any payments made in this way.
If parents have any difficulty at all paying fees, it is essential that parents tell us straight away. We are always happy to discuss the possibility of alternative arrangements with parents in genuine financial difficulties. We are currently reviewing our 'Outstanding Fees' policy and it will be updated in due course.
We plan our staffing levels and set our budget well in advance. In order to operate, we therefore need notice of changes to numbers and thus our income. One half term’s written notice is required of a child leaving the Pre-School or reducing their sessions, otherwise fees in lieu of notice will be charged.
No refund is made for sickness or absence from the Pre-School.
In the event of the Pre-School being forced to cancel sessions, the Pre-School will endeavour to give as much notice as is reasonably possible. The Pre-School reserves the right to offer replacement sessions in lieu of refunds.
