DEPOSIT/ADMIN JOINING FEE:

Once your child has been offered a pre-school place, we require an immediate deposit and admin fee of £150.00 to secure.

The deposit (£100.00) is refundable and deducted from your final month’s fees.

The administration fee (£50.00) is non-refundable. This fee covers the child’s settling sessions and includes a school bag for your child.

Failing to pay the deposit and administration fee on time will result in the place offered being withdrawn immediately.

Services and Consumables Charge* for children taking up a funded place. This will be charged at 50p an hour and will be invoiced monthly.

*The government funding provides for high-quality, flexible early education and childcare. It does not cover the cost of consumable items or additional services which parents should expect to pay for. However, the services and consumables charge cannot be made compulsory for any parents taking up a publicly funded place for their child. We would hope that our families understand the need for a services and consumables charge and be happy to voluntarily pay this. Those receiving funding for 2 year olds are exempt.

SESSIONS:

The minimum number of sessions per week, per child is two sessions.

Additional sessions can only be arranged with either the Pre-School Manager or the Administrator.

Changes/ Reduction to the number of days the child attends Hillside or cancellation of a child’s place at Hillside is subject to a 4 weeks’ notice period. If insufficient notice is given you will be responsible for the full fees for your child for one month from the date of any change.

Lunch Club session - a packed lunch and drink must be provided. Please note: We follow a NO NUT policy.

Children are entitled up to 30 hours free per week, the term following their third birthday and subject to eligibility / availability.

In addition we currently have additional spaces for 2 year old funding whom are also entitled to the 15 hours free per week which is subject to availability and eligibility.

Please note that the funding calendar is established by Hertfordshire County Council and usually differs from the pre-school and local schools terms and holidays calendar.

The 30 hours free per week can include lunch club sessions if these are booked in advance at the beginning of each term. We give parents whose children are entitled to government funding the necessary forms to be completed at the start of each term.
