Fees at St. Augustine's Breakfast and Afterschool club
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.
Important Parent/Carer location information:
The Breakfast & After School Clubs are held within the infant’s hall.
As we work very closely in partnership with St. Augustine's Primary School and due to safe-guarding procedures, access can only be gained by the entrance of the main infant reception gate, via our intercom access on Loudoun Avenue and is clearly signposted. A staff member will greet you upon arrival.
In line with current Parklanes Wykeham Childcare safe guarding policies, all parent/carers will be asked for their password when collecting their children as per their completed registration. We look forward to a continued working partnership with you and your children.
Early bird Breakfast Club:
Fees are based on a 1½hour session @ £5.50
Starfish After School Club:
Fees are based on a 3-hour session @ £13.00
If a child is attending both Breakfast Club and Afterschool Club a combined fee of £18.50 will apply.

• Exclude the child from pre-school.
