Fees are £3.80 per hour for 3-4 year olds (increasing to £3.90 from Janaury 2017) and £4.20 per hour for 2 year olds. Goverment funding (see below) may be used for core hour sessions running between 9.15am - 3.45pm.
Early drop offs and late pick ups are charged at a flat fee and not by the hour. The fee is £3.80 for 3-4 year olds and £4.20 for 2 year olds. Government funding may not be used for this and parents / carers need to meet costs personally.
Fees are invoiced each half term but you are welcome to pay on a weekly, monthly or half termly basis. Fees can be paid in cash, cheque, bank transfer or by employer childcare vouchers.
Children are eligible for the Early Years Entitlement from the term after their third birthday and this may be used to cover up to 15 hours per week of core sessions. This is called Early Years Funding.
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional government funding for childcare providers to improve the education they provide for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year olds.
Some 2 year olds are also entitled to free early education and childcare from the term after their second birthday. This funding is based on your child’s circumstances or your family income. If your child is eligible, you will be sent a Golden Ticket which you can use to access the free childcare.
For more information regarding the different types of funding offered, please see the Devon County Council website.
