Fees at Forest Row Daycare
Parklanes Wykeham Childcare Ltd. is a private childcare provider and therefore relies heavily on the prompt payment of fees in order to function. Fees are due every term in advance. The administrator will, in writing, advise parents/carers of the amount of fees due. Fees should be paid at least within 14 days of receipt of invoice. If a parent/carer is unable to pay fees within the time period, then they must advise the administrator and provide a genuine reason why they are unable to pay. In exceptional circumstances pre-school may agree to fees being paid by a payment plan. Payment includes any allocated sessions from which your child may be absent. Unfortunately, days in lieu cannot be given.
Fee’s for the Pre-School are £6.00 per hour per session. (3 or 5 Hour sessions available).
Please note: If your child attends the 5-hour session, you should provide your child with a packed lunch box that has their name on.
All Fees must be paid by the end of the first week of each term, late payment of fees could incur a 10% CHARGE.
Although for most three-year olds (normally the term after their 3rd birthday), are eligible for Local Education Authority Funding.
Funded children are entitled to 5hrs total funding per day, although for children who attend 4 OR 5 sessions a week, they are only entitled for funding of 15 hours per week maximum.
Additional hours: Children who exceed the 15hrs per week EEE Funding are charged at a rate of £6.00 per hr x by the number of hours per session x by number of weeks per term.
