All children are entitled to 15 hours universal funding the term after they turn three. You may be entitled to an additional 15 hours of extended funding. The funding is available 38 weeks of the year, 5 inset days and bank holidays we are closed.
Hours can only be split between settings once a parent declaration form is completed and both settings are term time only.
For those children who will be attending the pre-school or another setting for a total of more than the funded 15 or 30 hours per week, the pre-school will make a charge of £5.00 per hour for each unfunded hour that your child attends pre-school.
A charge of £5.00 per hour will also be made if your child is not yet eligible for nursery funding. Fees are payable termly.
We are now able to accept childcare vouchers.
We charge a daily consumable fee of £1.50 per day which will you will be invoiced for at the end of each term.
Fees will be increased annually in line with the North Somerset Nursery Education Funding. Fees continue to be payable if a child is absent without notice or for a short time. In cases of prolonged absence, parents should contact the management or committee about fee payment.
Each child’s attendance at the group is conditional upon continued receipt of any necessary fees or nursery Funding. Parents should give a half-term’s notice if a decrease in the number of sessions is required. An increase in sessions, or a change of day, will be subject to availability.
The Pre-school is registered with and inspected by Ofsted. The most recent inspection, dated January 2020, judged the pre-school to be good in all aspects of care and education for the second time.
Special Educational Needs
The Pre-school staff ensure that each child is able to progress at his/her own rate in all areas of development, and this is true for children with or without disabilities or learning difficulties. Activities are adapted to enable all children to join in. We are experienced in working closely with professionals across the range of special needs. If you would like to discuss the group’s ability to meet your child’s needs, please talk to the Pre-school leader, INNCO or your child’s key person.
English as an Additional Language
We work closely with other professionals to support children and families who use English as an Additional Language.
