Pre-School Registration and Fees

Nursery Grants

We participate in the Government Nursery Education Grant funding which entitles your child to 15 hours per week of subsidised child care. We also offer the 30 hours funding for working parents. The term after your child’s third birthday, you will be able to claim up to 15 or 30 hours per week, term time only. The hours covered by the government funding are delivered completely free of charge but there are supplementary charges for provision which is over and above that included in the funding. Children are eligible for the government funding in the term after their third birthday and it is concluded at the end of the term after they turn five. Further information can be provided via the school office.
