Sessions and Fees

Session Times
 
We are open during school term-time, 9am- 3pm Monday to Friday.  Our term dates can be found on our website and generally run in line with Fenstanton and Hilton Primary School.

Morning + Lunch  9am-1pm
Afternoon session  12- 3pm
All day    9am-3pm
 
We deliver our main pre-school programme (based on the Early Years Foundation Stage) during the morning and afternoon Sessions. These sessions are for children from the age of two years nine months up until they leave us for primary school.
 
Fees
 
We have always ensured our charges are competitive whilst enabling us to provide quality care.  From January 2018, our fees are £4.75 per hour for children over 3 years old, £5.00 an hour for those under 3.
 
We invoice termly in advance and payment is required before the start of term.  For that reason we issue invoices at the end of the term prior.
 
We accept most childcare vouchers which are issued through your employer.
 
 
Free Entitlement
 
The government funded 3 year old Free Entitlement can be used at Fenstanton Pre-School.

All children are eligible from the term following their 3rd birthday, up until they go to primary school. Each child is entitled to 570 hours of free Nursery Education per year, increasing to 1,140 hours for working parents meeting certain criteria.  These hours can be used at any time throughout the year. Please ask us for further information about how to claim and use your free entitlement. 

Early Years Pupil Premium

The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.  As a committee we are mindful of the need to ensure that EYPP funding is used to focus on the individual needs of eligible children and their families.
