We charge hourly for your child's care. Invoices are produced at the end of each month for the childcare for the next month. Payment needs to be made by the 8th of each month to aviod late payment charges.
We accept all childcare vouchers, the government tax voucher scheme and if you are under 21 years old and returning to any of the local colleges please ask about the Care 4 scheme that they run and we accept here at the Nursery.
As you are
aware from September 2017, the Government increased funded early
years childcare from 15 hours a week to 30 hours a week (for up to 38
weeks of the year) for eligible 3 and 4-year-old children.
funded hours can be used at registered childcare settings that offer
funded early education places, including day nurseries like
ourselves. This offer of additional hours will only be available to
families who meet certain criteria which includes all parents living
in the household working and earning approximately £110.00 per week
depending on your ages. For one parent families, the parent must be
working. In two parent families both parents must be working.
Information on how to find out if you are eligible is found on the H
M Government website
If your application is successful you will be given an 11 digit
eligibility code for your child. You must bring the code together
with your national insurance number and child's date of birth to us
at the nursery. I cannot stress enough how important it is for you
to register on this website. Without
this code you are not able to receive the additional 15 hours.
This has to be done as soon as possible, and you will need to re
apply every term!
government changes we have needed to look at how we can deliver our
quality service to yourselves in the best way. This nursery only
receives £4.25 per hour per child for funded only children. It is
interesting to note that Somerset has seen 52 nursery settings close
since January 2017 due to these government financial restrictions
which are already tight and are a threat to most individual
independent childcare settings.
to make up the difference, the local Government have suggested that for
funded hours only
children Early Years settings need to charge for consumables in order to stay financially sustainable. County
Hall have suggested that each setting must charge for Snacks,
Resources, wet wipes, etc.
remember this is funded hours only children. Where we receive £4.25 per hour and the cost of the childcare is £5.10ph a loss of 85p per
hour per child. You can now see why Somerset has had so many private Early
Years settings close.
We offer term time as well as 52 weeks of the year care, shift pattern and parents rotas are welcome. Children need to attend nursery for a minimum of twice a week.
If you are not able to get your child too and from nursery at any time we can come and collect them and deliver them back to your home.
