Fees

The fees are currently £4.30 per hour, payable in advance.

Fees continue to be payable if a child is absent without notice or for a short time. In cases of prolonged absence, parents should consult the management about fee payment. Each child’s attendance at the group is conditional upon continued payment of the necessary fees.

If you have any questions about fees or funding then talk to a member of staff or call us on 023 8066 8234.
