Children who do not receive EYEF (Early Years Education Funding) will be expected to pay for their sessions attended.  If your EYEF allowance of 15 hours per week has already been used up elsewhere we will invoice you for the extra hours attended.  Your termly invoice will detail all charges; these must still be paid even if your child is absent or unwell as a place has been reserved for them at the pre-school.

We have recently extended our hours to a possible weekly 25 hours to go towards the Government’s extended entitlement for working parents.

If your child will be staying for the lunch clubs you will need to provide them with a suitable packed lunch. Alternatively school dinners can be ordered from the school office first thing in the morning. Milk or water is always available to the children throughout all sessions. We encourage healthy eating and a variety of different things are provided each day. Do tell us about any allergies or dietary needs and we will make sure that these needs are met.

The current fees are as follows:  £4.25 per hour.

Below are the different session options for Cheriton Bishop Pre-School.
