Standard fees for the year 2020/21 are £18 per session. All three and four year old children are entitled to Kent County Council (KCC) funding for 15 hours kindergarten time a week. This means that they can have 4 sessions per week completely free.
We also qualify for the Free for Two (FF2) funding, which allows two to three year olds to attend for free subject to means testing by KCC.
You will be advised by us when you are entitled to claim for the funding, and how to do so. Unless otherwise agreed with the Committee, we expect children to attend for a minimum of two sessions per week.
Invoices and Payment
Fees can be paid termly (3 terms) or in monthly installments. If you choose to pay per term, an invoice will be sent a week before the beginning of each term. Payment is required in advance of term beginning.
We also accept payment via childcare voucher schemes.
We require one term’s notice if a child is leaving, otherwise the terms fee will become due and payable. In the unlikely event of parents being asked to remove a child, one term’s notice will normally be given or the outstanding fees refunded.
Fees Acceptance Form
When a date is set for your child to start kindergarten you will be asked to sign the fees acceptance form.
