*Additional costs:

Rose and Appleblossom kindergartens visit the woodland once a week, while Elderflower has two woodland days. The fee for woodland days is £100/term per day. This will be added to your invoice.

 

*Early Years Funding (EYF):

Children between the ages three and five, attending Kindergarten but NOT Buttercups (Little Kindergarten) are entitled to Early Years Funding. The funding is allocated to children from the term after they turn three until the end of term during which they turn five. Please consult the Local Authority website for further details. The final decision of eligibility will rest with the Local Authority. The school’s registration with the scheme is subject to review and therefore its provision may change throughout the year.

 

Please note: Both the fees and the EYF entitlement will be set at the beginning of each term. Therefore you will be unable to change your child’s attendance pattern during the term in question. 

 

 

Sibling discounts

These are available for all children, at the rate of 20% for the second child, 30% for the third child, and 50% for all subsequent children enrolled in the School.
