Costs & Funding
Each three-hour session currently costs £18.00 for under 3s and £16.50 for over 3s (with the cost being reviewed in September each year) and lunch club for over 3s costs £5.50 per day. We are a non-profit making organisation.
Through the government’s Early Years Funding Scheme, children aged 3 & 4 years old are eligible for up to 15 hours of free pre-school education for up to 38 weeks of the year and most families take advantage of this. A weekly Forest School session can be taken as part of your free entitlement funding. We will automatically apply for this funding on your behalf from the term after your child’s third birthday. Depending on your circumstances, you may also be entitled to 2 year old funding or an additional 15 hours 3/4 year old funding. Please note however that we may not be able to offer all of the hours for which your child is entitled to funding and that our pre-school is only open for 37 weeks each year.
